Diddy’s son is the newest Bad Boy. On Friday (Apr. 1), the hip-hop mogul signed his son Christian Combs to Bad Boy/Epic and announced it with a video featuring L.A. Reid.
“NEW DEAL ALERT!!!” he captioned the clip. “Everyone wish my son @KingCombs a happy birthday & CONGRATS on signing that record deal!! #BADBOY #EPIC.”
The signing was made even more special because it was done on Christian’s 18th birthday. Diddy celebrated his son’s b-day with a few more posts on Instagram, calling him one of his closest friends.
“Yesterday was the greatest day of my life,” Christian wrote on IG. “Not only was it my birthday, but Also the day a dream came true. I got signed to epic and BADboy records. I’m extremely thankful for everything that God has blessed me with and I will never take it for granted. Music is something that’s been part of me my whole life. #Epic #Badboywe got this!”
Christian appeared on “The Breakfast Club” to discuss his rap career in August. At the time, he revealed that his rap name would be King Combs, and that he planned on writing his own lyrics.
“I feel like if you’re gonna be a rapper, you’ve gotta write your own stuff,” he said.
