P Diddy, who was earlier known as Puff Daddy and sometimes is called simply Diddy, is a stage name of Sean Combs. This is a very special guy as he was named number one richest hip hopper by Forbes magazine. His awe-inspiring net worth beats all his other “colleagues” that include Jay-Z and 50 Cent. According to some sources P Diddy’s net worth is “only” $580 million, other sources however estimate it at whopping $700 million!
In September last year he has lost $1 million to Rick Ross, another rapper, and thought nothing of it:

However, our mission here is to show how rich and famous people have become who they are so let’s take a look at P Diddy’s history and how he managed to accumulate this amount of money.
Not everything was so simple when P Diddy was a child. Having lost his father while still young, Sean was raised by his mom. The nickname “Puff” was given to him back then because he would huff and puff when he was angry.
Already in college he was known for being able to throw big parties which attracted a lot of people. After dropping out of college future P Diddy began to work at Uptown Records from where he was fired after three years due to the deadly accident in one of the events he promoted.
Getting fired from a job may be a devastating event for some, but for P Diddy it was an important turn in his career as he proceeded to establish new joint venture with Arista Records called Bad Boy Records. Had he stayed an employee at Uptown Records, we may have never known P Diddy we know today. Next time when life throws at you a new challenge, remember P Diddy and many other rich and famous people we wrote about here, and think creatively. Make it a reason to get something bigger and better, a reason to develop into someone new or create a new image.
It was only in 1997 when Puff Daddy has released his very own first single Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down. It spent mind blowing 28 weeks (seven months!) on Billboard Top 100 peaking at number one.
Just like Tony Hawk, P Diddy didn’t limit himself to what he was doing originally and in 2001 P Diddy made his debut as an actor, appearing in Made and Monster’s Ball. Several more films followed with Draft Day and Muppets Most Wanted being the latest (2014).
Similarly to Jim Jones, P Diddy has started his own clothing line Sean John and created his own perfume I am a King. He also acquired Enyce clothing line for $20 million in 2008 and owns major equity stake at Revolt TV.
