How Diddy’s Run-In With 15 Roaches Inspired Him to Change His Life

Diddy’s latest post is proof that his life wasn’t always all about the benjamins. The 51-year-old businessman and musician recently shared a motivational video about becoming successful, but it was the caption of the Instagram post where the mogul actually revealed his true motivation behind changing his life. “One day when I was growing up, I woke up and there was 15 roaches on my face,” Diddy wrote in the July 6 message. “At that moment I said hell no, I refuse to live like this. Work hard, believe in your crazy dreams… AND NEVER SETTLE!” In the accompanying video, the “All About the Benjamins” rapper spoke about chasing your dreams and not giving up—all while snacking on a mango. After all, Diddy owns his own brand of vodka, has his own record label and is worth an estimated $740 million, so it only makes sense that’s he taking the time to enjoy the fruits of his labor…literally.
