The adorable conversation between the son and father has now been shared over a million times.

Baby Kingston gives his take on the hit T.V. show Empire’s season finale, watching it side-by-side with daddy.

“I was a little perplexed how I felt about the show, and he was kind of standing on the floor like he understood what I was talking about. I said, ‘You feel me man?'” Pryor said.

Kingston gave his opinion on how things played out, candidly critiquing with his dad, who also happens to be an actor.

The post was viewed millions of times and racked up 374,000 comments. Even Denny’s took notice.

The father-son duo starred in the restaurant’s Father’s Day commercial, having another one of their epic conversations.

“What’s going on in your life, huh?” DJ asks his son in the commercial.

Baby Kingston is Pryor’s youngest son. He also has an 8-year-old son named Jabari.

Although DJ now lives in Clarksville, Tennessee, he says he still has plenty of family in Petersburg.

Pryor says he’s performed all over Virginia and across the U.S., and he’s now considering adding Baby Kingston to his routine.
