The Bad Boy Records founder, who has had quite the fruitful career, talked success and being a leader.
My mother taught me the importance of education at an early age. I was able to gain tools, secrets and knowledge about what it takes to be a leader, what it takes to win and what it takes to make your dreams come true!! That's what we're doing with #CapitalPrepHarlem!! We're empowering our inner city youth with the knowledge they need to be great!!
“I was able to be successful,” he said. “I was able to gain tools and secrets and knowledge about what it takes to be a leader, what it takes to win, what it takes to make your dreams come true.”
Located in Harlem, New York, Capital Prep has enrolled 160 sixth and seventh graders, this school year. The charter school currently has plans to expand to high school grades in the future.
Puff Daddy’s appearance at Capital Prep came only hours after he appeared at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Those in attendance at the annual awards show were treated to performances from Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Future, and more.
