We break down the best bits for you.
Sean Combs aka Diddy, aka Puff Daddy was awarded an honorary doctorate of Humanities degree on the weekend at Howard University in Washington D.C.
The veteran rapper gave an inspiring commencement speech to celebrate the occasion, in which he discussed some of his hardest moments in life, and offered the new graduates his advice for their life to come.
In all, Diddy sums up his speech by offering three pieces of advice:
"I want you to never be afraid to make a decision. Be decisive. Don't be afraid to fail, be fearless."
"I want you to remember the power of you... I believe I can fly, I am a unicorn, you are a unicorn, we are unicorns. Do you know how powerful you are? You are the most powerful generation this world has ever seen."
"Ya'll know my motto, can't stop wont stop. Can't stop, won't stop. As you face these obstacles that I'm telling you about in your life, if you ever think about stopping, I just want you to imagine me singing in your ear, 'I thought i told you that we wont stop, i thought i told you that we wont stop."
