Christian “King” Combs says he “always” knew he would be a performer like his father, Diddy.
“It’s really always been something I wanted to do,” Combs told PEOPLE Saturday. “There have been times when my dad questioned me and asked, ‘What’s your plan B? Are you sure you want to do this?’ and I’m like, ‘There is no plan B.’ “
His go-getter attitude indeed has paid off since his summer hit song “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop” ft Kodak Black is still climbing the charts.
“It’s definitely a dream coming true for me, and it’s a great feeling to have the fans and people out there gravitate to a song that I made in the studio,” he explained.
When asked if there was anything he learned from his dad, he replied: “I would say the biggest lesson is never stop. Can’t stop, won’t stop. That’s what it is.”
There’s no denying that Combs’ career is taking off, but he claims that nothing would ever match the moment he heard his music for the first time.
“I was in the car in New York. I was riding around with my friends. It was like right when I started doing music and ‘Paid In Full’ came on,” he recalled.
He said, “I remember I just jumped out the car and I started dancing instantly. There’s no feeling like that. That’s like one of the best feelings.”
As Combs continues to carve his own path in music, he has developed an appreciation for hip-hop’s legends.
“I definitely have the utmost respect for my father and all the pioneers of hip-hop. You know, my pops is the GOAT, and they paved the way for us to be here and to be able to have a platform,” he said. “I knew this was going to be hard, but I didn’t know how hard. But we here, so let’s get it.”
