“One thing I never really told anybody right when I found out the news…I was shocked I didn’t know what to do,” he said in his NYC interview. “My whole world stopped. I was really down.”

The 20-year-old said after he landed from a flight after hearing the bad news, his song featuring Chris Brown, “Love You Better” began playing on the radio, a big accomplishment for his burgeoning rap career. He said he felt that was a sign that his mother was watching over him.

“I know that’s her talking to me, making sure I know everything is OK,” Combs said. “That just made me feel that there’s still faith and I have to keep pushing.”

Porter, 47, died of lobar pneumonia in her California home in November last year.
