Over the weekend, Diddy made his son’s dreams come true. To celebrate his birthday, Diddy gave his son, Christian Combs, not an overpriced car or some diamonds, but something beneficial to his career— a record deal .
With L.A. Reid and his father by his side, the 18 year old— who goes by King Combs—signed to Bad Boy and took to his Instagram to share the good news.
In a press release, Diddy expressed how excited he is of his progeny’s future:
“I couldn’t be prouder of Christian,” said Diddy. “He’s an incredibly talented artist with a bright future. Christian has earned this opportunity from hard work and dedication and he represents the future of Bad Boy.”
You might think it’s easy for the son of a rap legend to get a record deal, but Christian’s record deal wasn’t just given to him. In an interview with Hot 97 back in August, Diddy stated that he made Christian study rap legends and write him a thesis.
There’s no word on when Christian will be dropping his debut track or project, but when you come from rap royalty and have studied the craft, you’re bound for greatness right?
