Rap mogul and business tycoon, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs gave his highly anticipated commencement speech to eager students at Howard University today. Diddy reportedly stayed up late last night, working on his big speech and was excited about address the crowd at Howard University.
“Ain’t no homecoming like a Howard homecoming,” Combs told the crowd. Combs had attended Howard as a business major for two years before dropping out in 1990, and he spoke to the crowd of new graduates about the impact his time at the Washington, DC university made on his life.
“Howard University didn’t just change my life – it entered my soul, my heart, my being and my spirit,” he said as he received his honorary degree in humanities. “Nobody is going to invite you to the front of the line, you got to push your way to the front of the line.”
He was also presented with a special doctorate degree from the school and later joined by his lovely girls for photo op.
