As a child, Sean Combs probably had no idea he would become one of the most powerful men in music.
However, the little boy with the huge Afro and cute smile was destined to be the rap impresario known globally as Diddy.
The 43-year-old mogul shared a picture of himself as a tot looking calm, cool and collected in retro attire.
Even at a young age Diddy, who now has six children, shows off his ease in front of the camera and his penchant for turtlenecks. And he was already displaying some serious style credentials with his cardigan.
Today Diddy has a net worth of $550 million, but he started from humble beginnings, raised in a public housing project in Harlem, New York City.
His mother, Janice, was familiar with show business as she was a model who also worked part time as a teacher’s assistant.
His father, Melvin Combs, was a close friend of convicted New York drug dealer Frank Lucas, and was shot dead at the age of 33 while sitting in his car.
Diddy was still just a child when he lost his father, and he gained the nickname “Puff” because he would huff and puff when he was angry.
As an adult, he gained legendary status in the music world after signing the Notorious B.I.G. to his Bad Boy Entertainment records label.
Having worked as a producer and artist with several musicians, including Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z, and Jennifer Lopez, he became one of the most powerful names in music.
He also branched out into fashion and beauty products, releasing clothing line Sean John and fragrances under the same name.
