Diddy to Deliver Commencement Speech at Howard University Graduation

Diddy is returning to his old stomping ground to inspire a new generation. One of five people tapped to receive honorary degrees from HBCU Howard University, Mr. Combs is also giving the commencement speech to the graduating class. Despite only attending the school for two years before pursuing music in the early 90’s, he has gone on to build mega-successful brands in Bad Boy Entertainment, Sean John clothing line and recently Revolt TV,  a 24-hour music channel with the intent of being the “ESPN of music.” He  will receive an honorary doctorate degree in humanities, a fact that has upset some in the university’s  community.

But there is also plenty of support:

Howard’s graduating class is set to walk the stage, May 10th

What do you think? Good look or bad move for Howard electing to have Diddy speak at graduation?
