Rapper, producer and hip-hop mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs will take his celebrity to the next level when he is honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in January.
Diddy broke the news recently while calling in to "The Foxxhole," Jamie Foxx's show on Sirius radio.
"I'm from Harlem, New York, so to get a star in Hollywood is just mind-blowing," Diddy said. "You can get a lot of things, but when you see those stars on the ground ... that's something I can't even say I dreamed of and to be getting recognized for it is definitely something I'm gonna have my whole family out there for."
Diddy is famous for hustling his way from an Uptown Records intern to Bad Boy Records founder and chief architect behind the careers of such stars as Notorious B.I.G., The Lox and Mary J. Blige.
His business ventures have included two restaurants, a movie production company and a clothing line, and he continues to be active in the music industry, most recently co-producing several tracks on Jay-Z's American Gangster. Diddy has also had several stints in movies and plays, most recently starring in A Raisin in the Sun alongside Phylicia Rashad.
In related news, another one-time rap artist was recently honored on the Walk of Fame. Rapper/actor Will Smith, whose movie I Am Legend was the No. 1 December box office draw in history, got his own star on Dec. 10.
