For Diddy, It's Faith and Family over Everything

In honor of Mother's Day, we're remixing our show just a bit. We're sharing audio from a very personal sit down with dream hampton and ESSENCE's May cover star Sean 'Diddy' Combs (@diddy). He shared his raw feelings about his love for Kim Porter, raising their children and preparing for Mother's Day without her. We appreciate Diddy for courageously sharing his emotions and personal conversation with ESSENCE and now the world.Plus this epsiode really hits home as Charli shares her own experiences about growing up without a mother. For all dealing with parental loss this Mother's Day, we see you and you're in our hearts.
