Sean Combs was born on November 4, 1969 at Harlem, New York City. He studied at the Mount Saint Michael Academy in Mount Vernon from where he graduated in the year 1987. He was an avid soccer player in his school days who was part of his team winning the 1986 Division League title. But instead of continuing in sports, he went ahead to join Howard University to study business.However, here again he dropped out and went ahead to intern as a talent director at Uptown Records in New York. The skills that he learnt as an intern after dropping out of college became the most important reason in making him the success that he is today.
In1993 he was fired from Uptown Records, Combs did not take it as a failure but an opportunity to succeed. He started his own record company by the name Bad Boy Records in collaboration with established Arista Records. He was just 24 and this was a big risk he was taking. His keen eye for talent helped him get new comers like Craig Mack and The Notorious B.I.G. to join his record company. As Combs had expected, their first singles went on to be a hit with the audience and now Combs had earned more than $1 million within just a year of starting his business.
