This weekend, Diddy is returning to his alma mater Howard University to deliver the commencement speech. Some folks have been divided over this because the rapper/actor and constant fixture on the Forbes list never actually graduated from the school.
Regardless of who objects, Diddy is taking the honor very seriously by hiring journalism vet and author dream hampton. Hampton was a fixture during Diddy’s Bad Boy shiny suit days and good friends with Biggie. She has contributed to every music mag under the sun and moved on to being a filmmaker and was the ghost writer behind Jay-Z’s book, Decoded.
It pays to have good people on your team.
