Sean "Diddy" Combs helped mentor Usher and brought the then-teenage R&B singer to the East Coast to live with him in New York City for a year.

The musician recalled his early days in the business while chatting on the Howard Stern Show in a resurfaced clip from 2016.

"I moved to New York City and I lived with Sean ‘Puffy’ Combs for a year," Usher said.

Stern mentioned, "That was L.A. Reid's idea, right? We're sending you to something called Puffy Flavor Camp."

"Yeah, but you were 13. What were you seeing?" Howard asked.

The Atlanta-based musician noted, "I went there to see the lifestyle, and I saw it. And it was… But I don't know if I could indulge and understand what I was even looking at. It was pretty wild. It was crazy."

Co-host Robin Quivers chimed in, "So nobody tried to, you know, some woman didn't come along…"

Usher laughed before adding, "I didn't say that. What I did say is that there were very curious things taking place, and I didn't necessarily understand it."

He noted that the parties were filled with industry heavy-hitters, including, "Biggie Smalls was there, Lil Kim, Craig Mack… Faith Evans, Jodeci, Mary J. Blige."

Robin asked if his parents were "OK with everything," to which Usher said, "They didn't know nothing about this s---. I was having a good time."

"You're a dad now, would you ever send your kid to Puffy camp," Howard asked, to which Usher quickly responded, "Hell no."
