Sean "Diddy" Combs, man of many names and many more dollars, occupies a place in pop culture few others can match. Plenty of cool Diddy stories exist which exemplify his incredible, over-the-top career and lifestyle, and a few of them happened before he hit it big. In fact, his first moniker, Puff Daddy, actually stems from a childhood nickname. Apparently even before fame, Diddy already thought quite highly himself. Throughout all of Sean Combs's name changes, he held his title as a record label exec. Fun facts about Diddy include his monumental influence on music of the '90s and 2000s. More than a music mogul, Diddy holds stakes in liquor, fashion, restaurants, and television. As a result, Diddy now stands as one of the wealthiest rappers-turned-CEOs.
With all these accolades and riches, naturally a couple of dark Diddy facts also exist, including the infamous Bad Boy Curse people say follows the label. Regardless of how you view him, one cannot deny the influence of Diddy not just on music but on American pop culture in general. When you're Diddy-big, the stories just follow you.
