Talks about his stylistic growth, brand new music and life as a 23-year old.
To say that Y2K, the zeitgeist of the late ’90s and mid-2000s, has artistically influenced contemporary culture, would simply be an understatement. From fashion to music, to practically every characteristic of pop culture, there are only a select few that are still able to reign at the vanguard of the iconic movement – Christian ‘King’ Combs being one of them.
For Christian Casey Combs, a respected auteur and son of hip-hop mogul Sean Combs (Puff Daddy) and Model Kim Porter, it comes as second nature. “I wouldn’t be able to do music without fashion.”
Today, Christian Combs finds himself comfortably submersed between both. Born in New York and raised in LA, Combs acquires a smooth, silver-tongued flow indicative of his interstate roots – bridging the gap between the West and East Coast sound. And when it comes to fashion and sustaining his fly? Combs boasts a wealth of ‘a la mode’ and sure does. he. know. it.
Despite living in a world that had once ground to a halt, Christian’s lavishly appointed world now begs to differ. The 23-year-old is gearing up for an eventful summer in tribute to the two we had previously lost. “CYN, King Combs summer” he fruitfully vaunts, reassuring that we can look forward to brand-new music oozing with mesmerising delivery and musical tone.
Whether it takes a glimpse of the Billboard Charts or simply a peek at Valentino’s 2021 resort campaign, King Combs is fittingly inescapable. After all, as the old saying goes: “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”
King Combs. What’s up? We’re super stoked to have you here at PAUSE.
Thank you for having me. Nice to meet you!
Before we get into all thing’s music and fashion, how’s life?
It’s good. I’ve been working on some new music – I’ve got my new project which is about to drop with new singles. I’ve been shooting music videos. I’ve been with family spending time. Hanging out with some friends to get my mind off of some stressful things. I’ve also trying to go shopping a little bit for the summer, you know, to get my drip right.
Don’t act like your drip ain’t always right.
Haha! It is. I’ve been tryna switch it up for the seasons. You know?
Taking a look back at Cyncerley, C3, dropped back in 2019, the project was oozing with enchanting delivery and sample-infused production showcasing the various facets of C3. What can we expect from your new music? Are there any music collaborations to look out for?
We got something with Future, we just played out. It’s called ‘Holdin’ Me Down’. We got a couple more features too – shoutout Swae Lee! We got him on there. I would say it’s a lot of good music for you to feel. It’s a cohesive sound that will bring you into my world.
I’ve seen CYN 2021 floating around too. Are there collective plans for new music? Care to spill the juice?
For sure! CYN project is dropping this summer, so you’ve got that to look forward to. Both are dropping. CYN, King Combs summer.
I heard the nation is preparing to go back to pre-pandemic times. What have you got planned for the summer? I know you’ve got hella new music to drop. You’re going to be stylin’ on us. Anything else?
Yeah, hella new music. I’m going to be travelling with the family, we’re just going to have fun this summer and enjoy life as it’s been taken away from us for almost two summers.
I can’t wait to see everything you have in store; it’s been a pleasure catching up with you.
It’s been dope. Thank you. Thank you PAUSE. I love them.
