Diddy Gets Emotional Talking About His Father
In a rare moment of vulnerability, 5:47am to be precise, Diddy opened up about his father who died when he was just a boy. “My father was killed when I was three years old. I don’t have a lot of memories of my father. They say you can’t miss something you never had. That’s only a little ways right,” he told his REVOLT team.
“There’s definitely been times as I’ve gotten older that I’ve missed my father and his presence not being there to have someone to ask manly advice and just things that you would ask your father. Also things that you would celebrate with him that would make him proud. My father was a hustler. He was a drug dealer. He was a hustler. So I learned early in life there’s only two ways out of that, dead or in jail. It made me work even harder.
Sometimes you can’t just ask why things happen, but I definitely think the route that I went on staying out the streets and hitting my books and trying to be somebody, I think he played a role in that. I think that even if we don’t know our parents, we still have their DNA in us. We have their genes. I have his hustler mentality, his hustler spirit, his drive, his determination. His swag. He’s gonna be on my mind a lot today. My father’s name was Melvin Combs and I’m Melvin’s son, Sean Combs.
Peace. I’m about to eat my sandwich. Y’all ’bout to make me cry.”
Knowing Diddy, this was probably a ploy to get people watching his new channel REVOLT TV but that’s all apart of Diddy’s business savvy.
