The melanin is on full display!
Music mogul P. Diddy and his children Quincy, Justin, Christian, Chance, D’Lila and Jessie are all on the cover of Essence magazine’s 49th anniversary issue in a stunning and beautiful Black spread.
In the interview, Sean “Diddy” Combs spoke about how important his family is to him and requested that his cover story be titled, “Family Over Everything”.
“Before this, I was a part-time father, you know?” he explained. “My family was always first, but there are countless times when I chose work over everything else.”
He went on to say: “But every day I can hear her telling me to go and spend some time with the kids and make sure everybody’s all right, like she would do. I’m just a lot more present, and, most important, now my kids come before anything else in my life…”

The new issue is also said to be a tribute to the mother of Diddy’s kids and late ex-girlfriend, Kim Porter, who recently passed away.
Diddy recalls the last words that Kim shared before she died suddenly last November (2018).
“Three days before she passed, she wasn’t feeling well,” Diddy, 49, shared in the May issue. “She had the flu, and she sent the kids over to my house so they wouldn’t get sick. One night I was checking on her, and she was like, ‘Puffy, take care of my babies.’ She actually said that to me before she died.”
The heartfelt interview hits newsstands on Friday.
