Sean “Diddy” Combs To Open Charter School In Harlem

Now, when Sean “Diddy” Combs says, “Take that…take that,” he’ll be referring to an education.

The Hip Hop mogul will be opening a charter school in his hometown of Harlem.

Via the Associated Press:

He’s been a rapper, actor, singer, entrepreneur, record producer and clothing designer. Now Sean “Diddy” Combs has taken on a new job as the founder of a charter school in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood.

Combs announced Monday that the Capital Preparatory Harlem Charter School will open in the fall. The school will be overseen by Capital Prep leader Steve Perry, who founded Capital Prep Magnet School in Hartford, Connecticut, in 2005.

Combs and the board have hired Orlando, Florida-based educator Danita Jones as the principal of Capital Prep Harlem.

Combs says creating the school is “a dream come true.”

Combs was born in Harlem and grew up in Mount Vernon, New York. He attended Howard University, where he dropped out after two years but earned an honorary degree in 2014.
