His first nickname, Puffy, came from his childhood personality when he used to huff and puff whenever he got mad.
Combs was born in Harlem, New York, and attended a Catholic all-boys school in the Bronx. Combs attended Howard University where he took business administration. However, he dropped out and then pursued an internship at Uptown Records where he became an A&R responsible for finding talent. He was able to produce artists for Uptown successfully and rose to be vice president, but in the early 1990s, he left (or was fired) the company.
In 93 the world took notice of Sean Combs the entrepreneur. He began to produce some major artists such as Mariah Carey. He first launched Bad Boy Entertainment, his music production company in 1993 where he worked with artists like the late great Biggie Smalls, Lil’ Kim, Boyz II Men, TLC, Babyface, Method Man, New Edition, Faith Evans, Aretha Franklin, and Mary J. Blige. Combs earned a “Songwriter of the Year” from ASCAP in 1996.
In 1997, when Biggie was murdered, Combs recorded the song “I’ll Be Missing You” as a tribute that successfully topped the Billboard charts for singles for about 11 weeks. It was also then that he released No Way Out, Combs’ first album which gained platinum status. His album became that year’s best seller with about 3.4 million sold copies in the USA.

In 1999, Seam Combs released “Forever,” his second album. Combs has also released “We Invented the Remix” in 2002 and “The Hits” for Bad Boy Entertainments 10th Anniversary in 2004.

In 2010, he also created “Dream Team,” a rap supergroup that includes him, Fat Joe, DJ Khaled, Rick Ross, Red Café, Fabulous, and Busta Rhymes.
Just recently this year, Combs released “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story,” a documentary for the label’s 20th anniversary.
