Included in Coby's tribute to Huey was a clip of him speaking about fatherhood.

"It's just great dude, like, I just love it so much. I love it when I come home and then my daughter, she just comes running to the door and she just screams like 'ahhhh!' and then she runs around in a circle and she comes back and she hugs me. It's like the best feeling, bro," he said. "You don't really understand, like, fatherhood, until you're in that. It's really true."
