Diddy Wanted to Play Football, Found Music Instead

If plan A doesn’t work out, go to plan B. And plan B may someday make you millions. Sean “Diddy” Combs sat down with James Lipton from Bravo’s Inside The Actor’s Studio on Tuesday  night. Diddy reveals that he had dreams to play professional football until he injured his leg in his late high school years.  He said:

It broke my heart, I had to learn at a young age that things happen and sometimes your dreams get deferred, and you don’t have to give up your dreams.

He also discussed how he got where he is today, losing his father at the age of three, and discovering his father’s notorious past.

Originally, Diddy knew nothing about his father’s past. His mother, Janis, told him that his father died in a car accident.  But Diddy did his own research. He said:

“I went to the library to go through the microfilm and I searched my father and it came up that they had called him a ‘Kingpin’ in Harlem and that he was killed on Central Park West. He had got shot in his head, that’s how I found out about my father.” Diddy was devastated.

His mother raised him alone and inspired him to work hard and become successful. Because he wanted to make her proud, he pursued his education at Howard University.  Diddy became a music executive at Uptown Records while he was still attending school. He decided to leave school and focus on the music industry.

I guess that was the right choice because look at where he is today.

See, I like this story. Say what you want about Diddy, but he earned his dues.  He saw the light at the end of the tunnel and it made him millions and millions of dollars. Boy, let me find that tunnel.
