Famously known for leaving a lasting impression wherever he goes, hip hop mogul Sean “P. Diddy†Combs has been awarded his own day in the city of Las Vegas.

Las Vegas, Nevada will forever identify May 14th as “Diddy Day,†further acknowledging the entrepreneur’s admiration for the popular vacation spot.

"It's a great honor that one of my favorite cities in the world has named May 14th 'Diddy Day'," said Combs. "Las Vegas is one of the most colorful and vibrant cities I know. Its non-stop action and adrenaline-fueled energy is infectious. I look forward to working with the city in the years to come."

The event recognizing the famed entertainment impresario will also coincide with the cities’ 100th birthday celebration.

“P. Diddy brings national attention to every city he travels to and our hope is that he continues to bring his electrifying presence to Las Vegas,†said Mayor Oscar Goodman. “This weekend is about celebrating Las Vegas and having a good time and who better to invite to a party than P. Diddy.â€

Arrangements for the event were expected to take place one month prior, but due to scheduling conflicts and previous engagements, Combs informed the mayor he wouldn’t be able to attend.

Nevertheless, a wrench in plans couldn’t keep the excitement of the city at bay for long. All parties involved welcomed the rescheduling with no problems.

David Saxe, Las Vegas producer and owner of the V Theater, resounded in the mayor’s enthusiasm for upcoming ventures with the star.

“It is amazing to have P. Diddy, an entertainment mogul, visit the most electrifying city in the world,†he said. “We are all thrilled to be a part of [P. Diddy’s] potential future projects in Vegas, and we’re proud to have played a part in Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman and P. Diddy meeting with each other today.â€
