Sean Combs is the reason the why producers in hip-hop are stars; he showed the world you didn’t have to be Dr. Dre to be great.
He is singlehandedly responsible for the careers of Mary J.Blige, Biggie Smalls, Jodeci, 112, Mase, Lil’ Kim, Faith Evans, Carl Thomas, Craig Mack, Total and Black Rob.
He managed LL during the Walking With A Panther era and produced his Phenomenon album.
He is the only mainstream producer to show KRS-ONE love on the I Got Next album.
He is the first hip-hopper to have a legitimate fashion line after Phat Farm.
The only rapper to win fashion awards.
He’s still here.
