Sean "Diddy" Combs Celebrates His 50th Birthday With His Sons And Tributes. From Music to fashion he did it. As Diddy celebrates 50 years on this planet his is a quote that was on "The Root" talking about coming up in the fashion game. “We didn’t know it was going to go this far, to be honest. As far as Virgil [Abloh], Edward [Enninful, editor-in-chief of British Vogue]. We didn’t imagine Kanye [West] or Pharrell [Williams] at the time. I was standing on the shoulders of Russell Simmons...just trying to represent and get in the game. Coming from Harlem, your style is everything; you can’t compromise on your style. So, I didn’t compromise; I was going to be straight to the point. They would feel the confidence...It was unapologetically black and unapologetically hip-hop inVogue. That’s that.” Happy Birthday Sean "Diddy' Combs.
