Bad Boy Entertainment welcomed its newest signee, Christian Combs, this weekend.
Puff Daddy gifted his son with a contract to the record label for his eighteenth birthday, which was Friday (April 1). Bad Boy joined Epic Records in October, so the label’s CEO L.A. Reid was on hand as Combs signed his contract. Diddy shared the moment on Instagram.
“NEW DEAL ALERT!!!” he writes for the caption of a video of his son signing the contract. “Everyone wish my son @KingCombs a happy birthday & CONGRATS on signing that record deal!! #BADBOY #EPIC @la_reidSNAPCHAT: PUFFDADDY”
Reid shared a picture on Twitter of the three of them.
“The next generation of bad muthafuckas @kingcombs@iamdiddy @Epic_Records,” he says.
Combs took to Instagram to share the announcement as well.
“Yesterday was the greatest day of my life,” he says. “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 #Badboy we got this!”
Bad Boy is having a reunion show in Brooklyn, New York on May 20. Diddy said it is slated to feature performances from Faith Evans, Lil Kim, Ma$e, The LOX, 112, French Montana, Carl Thomas and more. Jay Z and Missy Elliott are also expected to make an appearance as friends of the Bad Boy family. A tribute to The Notorious B.I.G. is being planned as the event will count down to his forty-fourth birthday.
