WASHINGTON — Rapper and music mogul Sean Combs has received an honorary degree at one of the nation’s most prestigious historically black universities.

Combs delivered the commencement address Saturday at Howard University in Washington.

He was among five people receiving honorary degrees as trailblazers in their fields. The university also honored CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer, transplant surgeon Clive Callender, jazz legend Benny Golson and PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi.

Combs attended Howard in the late 1980s, although he did not graduate. University President Wayne Frederick says Combs’ entrepreneurial spirit was sparked at Howard, where he studied business.
