Christian Combs faces backlash after claiming his career was ‘bought’ by his father Diddy


In an interview with TMZ, Christian “King” Combs lets everyone know he’s earned his place in hip-hop and is taking over his father’s Bad Boy hip-hop territory.

Due to Diddy’s focus leaning more towards the R&B path, the “Can’t Stop, Wont Stop” rapper told TMZ that he’ll be happy to pick up the slack and take over.

“We take over, listen, Cant Stop Wont Stop Bad Boy. We have the song of the summer right now, the number one song.

He continued, “Pops have R&B, I have hip hop.”

Before Combs’ interview ended, the 24-year-old gave a quiet round of applause to naysayers who thought the young artist’s career had only been successful because of his father’s identity.

“Yeah, you know it’s earned, not given. You know we’re gonna prove it, the proof is in the pudding.

Although Combs thinks he’s rightfully earned his place in hip-hop, many fans begged him to disagree. It wasn’t long before the TMZ interview hit social media where fans were comparing Combs’ work to his father’s songs from the ’90s.

“However, he does not have a creative voice of his own. All his songs are excerpts or remakes of his father’s.

“Sir, every song you use is a sample of your dad’s shutdown. He wouldn’t have erased them for someone else. Privilege wants to be unprivileged so badly”

“His whole career is built on cosplaying as a father. Diddy is still here being Diddy, we don’t need a 2.0”

Combs’ summer hit “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop” which featured Kodak Black paid homage to his father’s infamous phrase as well as the epic 90s rappers Lil Cease and Lil Kim, “Crush On You,” which was originally sampled from The Jeff Labor Fushion’s 70s hit song “Rain Dance.”

The success rewarded Combs with a chance to perform his song at the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards.

In 2020, Combs collaborated with singer and fashion icon Teyana Taylor on her hit “How You Want It?” (HYWI)”, which was co-written by Diddy.
