Okay…okay, already.  After reading my in-take P. DIDDYbox and seeing that people keep hitting this blog looking for info on Puffy…I mean P Diddy…I finally decided to do a little somethang somethang.  So, here it is.


 

It is not a secret that Sean Puffy Combs considers himself to be the real “Mr. Big.”   High rollerbig time spender and entrepreneur extraordinair…who happens to be personally responsible for creating such mega stars as Biggy Smalls, had a hand in Mary J. Blige’s career amongst others.  Little wonder Puffy as he was then known was on target for where he is today. 

The one time apprentice of Andre Harrell of Uptown Records….P. Diddy who once co-sponsored the party that ended in the death of at least 2 students during a party at Hunter College.  Puffy…or P Diddy as he now calls himself is raking in the green…and burning it up equally as fast.  Trying to keep up the image doesn’t come cheat.  And believe me it is all about image.sean-p-diddy-combs_2345621

From lavish yachts to high class resturants…and top shelf drinks…P might believe that he has it all.  Widely looked up to among the hip-hop world the former Howard University student who used to jump  Amtrak going back and forth between DC and New York City…now rides in nothing but style…try Bentleys for one…then limousines etc…

Though his claims as a bad boy for life may not really be true.  One thing for sure he is smart.  And has managed to reinvent himself a couple of times.  I must say that his production of Lorraine Hansberry’s play “Raisin in the Sun” was simply great. 

Though as a rule I think Piddy can’t act but based upon the reports of what he did to get him into being that character, which was the son who takes his mother’s money and throws it away and still somehow manages to emerge a champion…and finally does the right thing.  Well, in a word…good.  Puffy or Diddy or Sean…or whatever he calls himself…he did a very good job. 

The entire production was fabulous…which I thought would have failed badly.  But it did not because for one thing Diddy is a very smart guy.  And he really proved that he does take some things seriously…including where he places his money and trying to project a good image every now and then…like paying to produce quality work, such as ” Raisin in the Sun.”  

From restaurants to clothing lines to his own record label to reality TV show…and as you read below by CLICKING on the LINK…a car service for drunken stars.  He thinks of everything…that can make him ‘mo’ money.

In it all…one has to wonder…is he really happy?

I have seen over and over again how hard it is for people to find true happiness in life…when they have too much money.  It seems that money rules them…that it had been their aspiration and life focus.  But at the end of the day…it is not all about money.  Believe me.  In fact there are many things that money can’t buy.   And those are the things which are the most a raisin in the sun trailer 08important in life.  True respectlovea good familyhealthpeace of mind…etc. 

There is much that can be said about the free things in life…and it is so sad that they go so widely overlooked.   To me they have so much more value.

But we are happy for anyone who can find a balance.  Here’s to you and your balance in life.  Hold always…God first and everything else follows.

Well, have a blessed day.  And maybe Mr. P Diddy will find the ONE who really counts and has more value than gold.

Finally, got some rest last night.  Got 2 exams tomorrow.  So, I will be studying most of the night.  But God is good…and I am so happy that I know Him.
