Dr. Sean John Combs aka Diddy attended The Mecca where he studied business for two years before he landed an internship with the late Andre Harell in 1990. “I wanted to work for that Black man…” Diddy said in reference to the late founder and music executive of Uptown Records. Running errands and earning stripes as a Talent Director, A&R Executive and Producer working with Uptown acts Heavy D, Jodeci and Mary J. Blige catapulted Diddy into super stardom. He launched his own label Bad Boy Entertainment in 1993 with legendary diamond-selling hip hop artist The Notorious BIG, later signing Ma$e, TheLox and Total among others iconic acts. “Howard didn’t just change my life, it entered my soul, my heart, my being and spirit…” Diddy said as the HU 2014 commencement speaker and honorary doctorate of humanities recipient.
