The big homie Sean “Diddy” Combs gives his fans a rare glimpse of his personal life with his latest Revolt TV segment in reference to his father’s story.

The music mogul and extraordinary entrepreneur used his extravagantly new music TV project Revolt TV as his platform on Wednesday to publicly discuss his late father, Melvin Combs.

It’s a big step to open up to people, so we commend Diddy for sharing his story. He taped his segment titled, “Confessions” in his apartment, explaining how although he barely knew his dad, Melvin still had a big influence in his life.

“They say you can’t miss something you never had, but that’s only a little ways right. There’s definitely been times as I’ve gotten older that I’ve missed my father–his presence–not being here… There’s things that you would ask your father. There’s also things that you would celebrate with him that would make him proud.”

Combs was quite honest about his father’s career. He lost his life at the age of 33 when Diddy was merely a 3-year-old. He credits those experiences as his motivation to do something positive with his own life.

“I have his hustler’s mentality, his hustler’s spirit, his drive, his determination, his swag.”

That determination definitely paid off for the Bad Boy Records CEO.
