Sean "Diddy" Combs

Diddy has ruled hip hop from his throne as founder and leader of Bad Boy Records, where he's broken acts including the Notorious B.I.G., Faith Evans and French Montana. In the meantime, he's parlayed his music success into other profitable ventures, including Sean John and Ciroc.
