Sean “P-Diddy” Combs accomplished a feat that most would’ve never expected from a college drop-out. Yesterday, Combs went back to the school where he launched his Bad Boy label, Howard University to give the commencement speech for this years graduating seniors.

The hip-hop mogul also received a honorary doctorate degree in humanities from his alma mater Howard University.

Combs,  who dropped out of Howard after two years in 1990, started off  the university’s 146th commencement address on Saturday in Washington, D.C. like his,

“Ain’t no homecoming like a Howard homecoming,” said Diddy . “And it feels so good to be home.”

During the speech, he shared inspirational words about his time as a student at Howard, running the New York City Marathon in 2003, and even quoted the late Notorious B.I.G.

“Howard University didn’t just change my life—it entered my soul, my heart, my being, and my spirit,” he said. Despite some backlash from Howard students, he received a standing ovation and “Diddy” chants from the Class of 2014.

“Of all the amazing moments God has blessed me with, this has to be one of The Greatest! Thanks You Howard University and The Class of 2014,” said Puff.

Diddy joins an illustrious list of past commencement speakers including Oprah Winfrey, Colin Powell, Hillary Clinton, and Maya Angelou.
