Howard University‘s decision to have entertainment mogul Sean “P. Diddy” Combs deliver this year’s graduating class commencement speech is causing many people to cry foul.
The debate began raging as soon as Howard, located in Washington, DC, made the announcement Tuesday on Twitter.
Combs attended the historically black university for two years before dropping out in 1990.
Instead of finishing college, he went on to intern at New York’s Uptown Records and then founded Bad Boy Records as a joint venture with Arista Records. In addition to his own recording career, Combs signed Notorious B.I.G., Jodeci, Mary J. Blige, Usher, Lil’ Kim, TLC, Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, SWV and Aretha Franklin, among others.
But, those accomplishments don’t seem to matter to critics of the decision, who are upset that Diddy never graduated from college.
