Mother Of...Diddy

Street Cred: Janice Combs might not be as wild as some of the other people on this list, but that doesn't make her any less gangsta. Diddy's dad Melvin Combs was a well-known Harlem gangsta who had connections to both Frank Lucas and Nicky Barnes, and Janice was the boss' ride or die chick. After her husband was brutally murdered when Diddy was still a child, she took to rising young Sean on her own. Nowadays you can catch her on the red carpet with Diddy, sporting a blonde wig like a '98 Lil Kim.
