In another video, Diddy celebrates the accomplishment with a cake. "This is for my son Christian," he said. "He put out 1, 2, 3, 4 maybe 5 records and he didn’t stop. And when you don’t stop and you say fuck that, and you go for what you know, and you did it for your mama too, and you did it on your own son and we proud of you.”
In a previous interview with HipHopDX, King explained his relationship with his dad, saying they're really close, and Diddy ensures he doesn't take anything for granted.
“Me and my Pops got a good relationship, and we’re real close sometimes, like it feels like we’re brothers,” he said. “We’re just super cool. But Pops, he don’t play, he always makes sure that I’m on my Ps and Qs, and that I’m working hard, and not really taking nothing for granted. He be hard on me sometimes but at the end of the day, that’s my Pops. That’s what he’s supposed to do, so he’s cool.”
