(The Washington Post) – You can call him Dr. Combs.

Rap and music mogul Sean Combs electrified Howard University’s Class of 2014 on Saturday with a commencement speech that was thoughtful, funny and, surprisingly, sentimental.

“Throughout my life, I have rushed through some of my great moments,” he told the crowd, clearly savoring the occasion. “I promised myself if I ever reached this moment I would take my time.”

That’s right folks — the man of many monikers — Sean John, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy and very briefly, Swag, has added a new one, now that he has an honorary doctorate from Howard University. Dr. Diddy? Perhaps on informal occasions. But more formally, please call him Dr. Combs.

“Only this family could take one of its sons who already had three name changes and give him a fourth — Dr. Sean Combs.”
