He's never been one to reveal anything about his past, but in a rare interview Sean Diddy Combs shared details about an important figure in his list.

The 43-year-old rapper took to his Twitter account on Wednesday (October 23) and posted his latest Revolt TV segment.

"I've never spoken openly about my father ..but launching @Revolttv moved me to share and let ppl kno the truth #free," Diddy tweeted.

During the interview entitled "Confessions," Diddy sat down in his apartment and explained why he misses his father.

"They say you can't miss something you never had, but that's only a little right," Diddy stated. "There's a definitely been times as I've gotten older that I've missed my father - his presence - not being there... There's thing that you would ask your father. There's also things that you would celebrate with him that would make him proud."

Also discussing the influence his drug dealing father had on him, the "Bad Boy for Life" singer said, "I have his hustler's mentality, his hustler's spirit, his drive, his determinations, his swag."

He continued, "My father was a hustler. He was a drug dealer and he was a hustler, so I learned early in life that there's only two ways out of that dead-end jail. It made me work even harder."

"Sometimes you can't just answer why things happen, but I definitely think the route that I went on - staying out of the streets and hitting the books and trying to be somebody - I think he played a role in that," he added.
