NEW YORK - Hip-hop entrepreneur Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs on Thursday gave the city $1 million he raised for public schools by running the New York City Marathon earlier this month.

The money will be used to support school libraries and technology.

Combs, who ran the race in 4:14:54, raised $2 million overall - the other $1 million will go to other charitable causes.

At a City Hall news conference to announce the donation Thursday, Combs and members of his entourage, met with Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

"It's an honor and blessing," said Combs, whose own children attend private schools, "to do something good for the city."
