Sean Combs

Rap mogul Sean "Puffy" Combs just made it easier for Howard University students to pay off their student loans.

The 46-year-old college dropout presented a $1 million check to the school during his Bad Boy Reunion Concert Tour stop in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.

Combs said the money was aimed at starting a scholarship fund for “anybody who can't pay off their financial aid.”

Combs dropped out of Howard U. in the late 1980s to become a rap promoter.

On Dec. 28, 1991, nine youths were trampled to death and 29 injured during a celebrity basketball game he promoted at City College in New York.

"City College is something I deal with every day of my life," he told the NY Times in 1998.

Howard University presented Combs with an honorary doctorate degree in 2014.

    Just a little fat??

  • Howard Alum ?

    Yes he did........mad students have back balances, however, this does not help the students who could not register for classes this fall due to balances from the spring 2016 semester. This will only benefit the upcoming semester and forward. But let's hope the "A" building do what their suppose to do with the money....now that ______________, is no longer head of the Financial Aid Department....but good for Diddy. Hopefully, HU20 freshman Nick Cannon looks out! HU, Bison Pride ?

  • Howard Alum ?

    I don't fit the description ? so, what does that make me? I consider myself a rose ?

  • I aint the one

    Will it be applied to alumni debt as well? ?

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    I wonder how many Bad Boy artists are or were owed royalties. Folks love to be generous on one account and not pay their artists and/or expenses in the next breath.

  • scentsychick30

    Great job giving back,the shade from something so positive?

  • Lisa daniels
  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Probably all of them. I'm sure half his tour acts went on the road to get some kind of paycheck finally. But even though he's a POS when it comes to paying his artists, I can't knock his generosity in this case. Kind of like how I can sweet and petty at the same time.??

    Nobody's perfect ?

    Not perfect ?

    You say that because he don't owe you

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    HE bet be glad he doesn't owe ah Rose!???

    Could you imagine yo? ????

  • Lisa daniels

    Well at least he take care of his kids and the community. Them ninja should have bought that cheesecake

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    No lol
    I just don't wanna waste any valuable Blawg time ?

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    As you said, you won't knock it. I don't recall knocking it. I'm certain that for many years, he wasn't paying his artists. Now, he wants to donate $1 million to HU like people haven't literally committed crimes and spent years in jail in attempts to make ends meet because they had careers and never saw the fruits of their labor.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    The court ordered him to take care of his kids. That's what a man is supposed to do. That's like giving someone credit for washing their ass and brushing their teeth.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    We would have payment by end of day

  • Lisa daniels

    Well most of his colleagues dont take care of their kids( stevie j, 50 cent, future, and etc) so I give him credit for doing what should be natural but these other bums have to be tortured into doing. But you right.

  • nucynu25

    You got a point you really do but the man did something positive so am focusing on that ..I'll drag his ass another day ?

  • nucynu25

    Girl I be hardt up being mines ..I'll be be harassing him & Cassie

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    50 pays child support for Marquise. That's "taking care of" in a lot of misguided people's eyes. 50 is involved in Sire's life because he is young. I'm sure once Sire is of the age to form opinions, 50 will change. You could refer to my conception with my mother as an "arrangement" and think I would want anything to do with you.

    Kim went in for CS and once she received her 5-figure monthly sum, Misa went in for an increase. I presume Sarah, the only BM who appears to be about something, receives a matching monthly sum.

    As for Stevie, he spent that money with the dope man. No respect there. I haven't seen Future being taken to court for non-payment of CS but for increases and Ciara wanting full custody of baby Future. That's not the same.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Yes! ???

  • Lisa daniels

    50 bullies that boy. Counting down just foul. Future is mad that ciara aint at his beck and call like his other babymamas. I never knew diddy was on child support, just thought he did it on his own since i never heard anything about he going to court about it. Stevie is as you said.

  • Lisa daniels

    Dead.

  • nucynu25

    & Kim ....

    The idiot who said racism didn't exist until Obama got in office? She's nuts. Good riddance.

    For the second time this week President Obama suggested today that trump learn something about black history:
    As per The Hill @msn:
    President Obama is encouraging Donald Trump to visit Washington's new National Museum of African American History and Culture, saying it could benefit the GOP presidential nominee.
    Obama said in an interview that aired Friday on ABC's "Good Morning America" his suggestion was in response to Trump claiming that that African-American community is in worse shape than "ever" before.
    "I think that even most 8-year-olds will tell you that whole slavery thing wasn't very good for black people, Jim Crow wasn't very good for black people," Obama said. "What we have to do is use our history to propel us to make even more progress in the future."

    I am going to miss President Obama!

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Puffy didn't do his artists no dirtier than anyone else. And unless they were underage.... artists need to be responsible for their own contracts.Shyt Barry Gordy built a whole empire in Detroit while robbing underage folks. Puffy has never been sued has he? He raped perfectly consenting adults legally financially.

    Glad he gave.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Barry Gordy getting awards from the President. As of yesterday. Why his thief ass ain't villified? He started robbing Michael Jackson at 6 yo.

    Sure not

  • PROPHETMAJOR

    Sandra can never let someone be great without tearing them down at the same time.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That's exactly what happened to your favorite urban blogs. They got greedy. If you notice, most of the urban blogs are gone. Why? Because they sold out to the highest bidder who promised them a big bonus upfront and monthly paychecks to update their own blogs. They took that upfront money and went on shopping sprees, traveling, etc. When the checks stopped coming in, they stopped updating their blogs. Then they took their blogs and archives offline because they no longer owned the domain names. That's what happened to Necolebitchie, Concrete Loop, Crunktastical, etc. And that's why Necole can't bring necolebitchie back.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    They were grown men at the time? If not no bueno

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    How did I tear him down?

  • LibraGirlonly

    Wow blogging is a tuff messy business I see.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The same company hit me up to buy my blog. I didn't even wait for the sales pitch. I said "no" without hesitation.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Gee. Ok

  • LibraGirlonly

    I was getting ready to ask you why didn't you take the bait? Good thing you didn't, such a shame that the other ladies did.

    That's awesome. My admiration just ticked up one notch...to 1. But that is great & hopefully others will do the same.

  • puppylove

    Right is right and wrong is wrong. Don't go around as if you were this savior for all of these artists who would have been done wrong by the white man when you were doing the same thing.

  • nucynu25

  • kekeb

    That's bullshyt. Let's see if your job not pay you Friday and refer to some old ass paperwork you signed when you first started. Right is right. These companies need to stop being greedy and give people fair and honest contracts.

  • kekeb

    Hold on, wait. 50 cent's kids are taken care of per 50 cent. As are Future's per future AND his BMs. Where Are you getting this information

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    If he owes his artists $20 million, that's a drop in the bucket, considering his net worth. I will never respect people having hundreds of millions of dollars but being so damn greedy that they don't take good care of the people who afforded them their wealth.

  • Mac Jones

    Nothing special about that- at all. A million dollars is the most diminutive amount of money. Truly paltry. To give you some perspective...Diddy received a BONUS check of 40 million dollars for his executive production credits in 1997. That's almost twenty years ago. If I have 500 dollars and I give you a dollar do I now deserve praise? He's valued at 500 mill. A million dollars is a dollar to him. He supports Trump too. F. P. DIDDY.

  • Realnigga101

    Money does talk, dude dropped out of college, became a self made millionaire and now the same college honor him with a doctorate degree! Damn!
