Today marks the 44th birthday of Sean “Diddy” Combs! After beginning his career as an intern at Uptown Records, Diddy launched Bad Boy Records in 1994 as a joint venture with Arista Records. After launching the careers of future superstars such as The Notorious B.I.G., Faith Evans and Total, Diddy became a multiplatinum artist himself after the massive success of his own debut album, No Way Out, in 1997. In the 19 years since the advent of Bad Boy, Diddy has gome on to become one of hip-hop’s richest men launching successful ventures such as the Sean John clothing, popular reality television shows and became the brand ambassador for premium vodka brand, Cîroc. Last month, Diddy opened up shop on his latest high-profile venture, Revolt TV, a cable network dedicated to music and culture.
Happy Birthday, Diddy!
