Since graduating high school in 2016, King Combs has been making waves on the music scene. As the son of REVOLT TV chairman Sean "Diddy" Combs and the late Kim Porter, possessing musical talent, a solid work ethic and creative spirit have been deeply embedded in his DNA. The recent release of King's nine-track Cyncerely, C3 EP, a follow-up to his 2018 mixtape 90's Baby; fans gain a glimpse into the many facets of his alter ego C3 -- Christian Casey Combs -- fused with a perfect blend of East and West Coast sounds.

The EP boasts production from DJ Mustard and features appearances from artists Ty Dolla $ign, City Girls, Jeremih and members from his crew CYNMOB, which is short for CYN Men of Business. As a mogul in the making, King has learned the importance of diversifying his portfolio. Not only did the young MC A&R his current project, he's modeled for high-end, luxury brand Dolce & Gabbana and has ventured into other pursuits, as well.

He attributes his tenacity to both his parents, but with the tragic loss of his mother, it further amplified his zest for success. In a recent statement, King said, "My mom always wanted me to put out more music and not hold back," and he is doing just that! Taking his mother's advice and honoring her legacy when the EP was released, he proudly stated on Instagram, "Mommy, this is for you!"
