If there's one thing our favorite rappers love more than flexing on the 'gram or fiery diss tracks? It's their mini-mes. From Notorious B.I.G. to Nicki Minaj, these are the little legends already taking Hollywood by storm.
If there's any celeb baby oozing with swag before the age of one, it's A$AP Rocky and Rihanna's. In May 2022, RiRi gave birth to their baby boy. Since then, they have kept him pretty much under the radar. Still, with a few paparazzi pictures here and there, we can already see he is a clone of the Purple Swag singer.
In December, Rihanna finally shared an official first look at their baby boy on TikTok, which sent fans wild. Immediately, viewers saw the resemblance between him and dad. A$AP was later spotted holding his son at the Malibu beach (above). And with a sibling now on the way, we'd say this little guy is living good.
Young Thug is one proud parent. Despite having children with separate mothers, he has proven to devote his time to all six of them, three sons and three daughters. While it might be difficult, considering their ages, to have them all together in one place, there is one son who he seems to have taken under his wing.
“They ain't easy. It be like, ‘If I could take this back? Yes, what the @#*^ was I thinking!’" he confessed of becoming a dad. Despite his controversial remarks, he has made sure fans know he is hands-on. In the image above, Thugger is with one of his eldest sons, looking identical. The tinted shades, the same stare, it's all there.
Austin Richard Post is a father! Considering his on-the-road rockstar lifestyle, we never thought we would see the day. Still, he shocked the world after opening up about focusing on himself and being the best father he could be. Although, we still need to learn more details as the Circles singer kept his long-term relationship hidden.
The big news made headlines in the summer of 2022. Posty put down the beerbongs and picked up the pacifiers as he welcomed his daughter. He told Howard Stern, "[I woke up] at 2:30 in the afternoon. I went and I kissed my baby girl and then I went and I played some [music]," followed by even more exciting news that he is engaged!
There's only one Chris Brown. But one look at his daughter, Royalty? And it's almost as if we're seeing double. The father of 2's eldest is just 7-years-old, but she's already got an endless amount of wins.
From her modeling debut to her dance moves, RoRo, no doubt, lucked out in the gene pool. Whether she's flexing to her 1+ million followers on the 'gram or showing baby bro, Catori, how it's done, Miss Royalty is certainly living up to her name. And we haven't even mentioned the drip on this girl...
He's a certified lover boy, and his son is no exception. Over the years, Drizzy has been nothing but open about his love for his little one. But if by some chance his pics on the 'gram don't speak for themselves? Then we can help out over here.
We'll be seeing lots more of 4-year-old Adonis moving forward. "I want to be able to go places with my son and share memories with my son," Drake explained. "I don't want to feel like just because of a life choice I made to be, you know, a 'celebrity' that I got to make everybody live under this blanket."
No, he's not yet shouting "anotha one!" But DJ Khaled's little guy is already lining up to be just like him. That's right - 5-year-old Asahd Tuck Khaled is, no doubt, one of the busiest tots in the business. From his swanky shoe collection to studio time with dad, Khaled's eldest is already making money moves.
And it's only up from here. "It is so beautiful when you can teach a kid to be great because they're born great," the proud father of 2 explained. "Genius levels at its highest." Khaled is also dad to 1-year-old Aalam, whose name has already been trademarked. Clearly, both kids are destined for greatness. Bless up.
DaBaby might be living like a rockstar, but so is Princess Renny. The 4-year-old diva has got the confidence and charm her dad knows all too well - and she's even got the bling to back her up. Not only does Kirk's "twin" - as he put it - know all about staying icy, but she's also found her way into the studio. Are we looking at DaProdigy?
We guess only time will tell. What we do know, though, is that's DaBaby's other kids (2 daughters and 1 step-son) are also living large. From their own whips to designer kicks, we sure wouldn't mind being a Kirk. And while the rapper's baby mama drama with DaniLeigh is still playing out, we wish his blended fam all the best.
Being a single father of 6 is no easy feat. But leave it to Diddy to make it look easy. Not only has Puff Daddy built an entire empire, but his mini-mes are destined to follow right in his footsteps. Scratch that - they already have. Just ask King Combs, the rapper's 23-year-old prodigy son.
"Seeing [my dad] perform… it really clicked," he revealed of his love of music, something ingrained in him since he was 5. But don't get it twisted: "this isn't a hobby because of who my dad is, this is my passion." From making his studio debut at just 8-years-old to making a name in the fashion game, we'd watch out for this King…
There's a very special lady in Machine Gun Kelly's life - and no, we're not talking about Megan Fox. When he's not busy dropping diss tracks or flexing his "twin flame" on the 'gram, the Rap Devil artist is proud father to his teenage daughter, Casie.
Not only has she joined dad on the red-carpet, but she's even tried her luck in the studio. "I trust her opinion more than I trust my own now," MGK revealed. "Like, she has her finger on the pulse of what's hot, or if I'm doing a song and it's the right one, she'll confirm it."
It ain't easy being Nick Cannon. The Wild "N Out legend has welcomed not 1 - but 7 - kids over the years with 4 different women. And as far as he's concerned? He's ready to take a breather. "Give me a break bus," the rapper joked after welcoming twins this past summer.
But don't worry - he'll be returning to the baby-making soon enough. "I've experienced such a wide range of upbringing that I have such a love... for kids and family. I want a big family," Cannon explained. From his son Moroccan (above) - who he refers to as "me all over again" - to his 2 sets of twins, we'd say he's well on his way…
Fiddy wasn't lying when he said he was gonna get rich or die tryin'. With a cool $40 million in the bank - as CelebrityNetWorth estimated - the baller certainly knows how to live large. But so does his youngest son, Sire (below). The rapper's mini-me is only 9-years-old, and he's already raking in more than most of us.
From his $700,000 modeling gig to his splashy birthday parties, the young prodigy has seemingly got it all. And while Sire's older bro is currently beefing with dad, that hasn't changed the little man's views. "There's a point where kids view their parents as superheroes," 50 Cent explained. "My little guy now, he sees me like that."
No one tells Kanye how to do Kanye. That is, aside from North West. Kimye's eldest doesn't answer to anyone, something her own father had to learn the hard way. But don't quote us on that one. "I'm like, 'Damn, you worse than the Internet, North,'" 'Ye joked of his bossy mini-me.
Whether she's inspiring Yeezy's latest drop (yes, really) or turning Kanye into "her assistant designer for 20 minutes," Nori is already making big moves over in Hollywood. And we haven't even mentioned her guest appearance at dad's show during 2020 PFW. Safe to say, this 8-year-old might just be more Kanye than Kanye himself...
Ever wonder the inspiration behind Astroworld? Two words: Stormi Webster. "Fatherhood influences my job. It has a huge impact... a major inspiration," Scott revealed of his 3-year-old toddler. She might be small, but don't underestimate this pint-sized prodigy.
Not only does La Flame's daughter have her very own brand under her belt, but Mr. Scott finds her just as impressive. "I was already going so hard for the fans, and now? Oh man, Stormi, it's like… I love that," the proud dad explained. We love to see it.
Our next rapper's come a long way since his time as a teen dad. The Father of 4 artist first welcomed fatherhood at 17, but he's done a whole lot of growing since then. Don't take our word for it, though: "The journey of fatherhood was kind of tough for me at first," he confessed. "Now that I'm older, though, I'm learning."
Today, the Migos legend has 3 sons and 2 daughters - including, of course, Kulture Kiari (above). Safe to say, his and Cardi B's princess is living the good life. From her 3rd birthday party this past summer - and the $250k+ Richard Mille it called for - to her designer wardrobe, Offset's mini-me is no regular, shmegular girl.
He's the king of New York, and his clan is sitting very comfortably on their throne. But forget Sir and Rumi for a second - let's talk Jay and Bey's eldest. At just 9-years-old, Blue Ivy has already climbed her way to the top. And she might just be the flyest 4th grader to ever do so.
From her very own personal stylist (yep.) to her very first Grammy win this past year, Blue is already giving dad a run for his money. And she'll have no problem reminding him just that. The little ball of sass has been known to speak her mind, as Hova himself has revealed before. No doubt, we're expecting big things from his mini-me.
He ain't exactly shy when it comes to life behind closed doors. But entanglements aside, this Fresh Prince is also happy to talk parenthood. While Smith's road to fatherhood started off rocky, the proud dad has since morphed into the ultimate family man.
"Trey (above) had gotten the most ignorant version of my parenting, Jaden had got Will Dad 2.0... and even though Willow had had to shave her head, she had stopped me before her point of no return," Smith confessed of his 3 kids. Clearly, he's come a long way from his time in West Philly. And we love to see it.
Forget her time spitting bars or climbing the charts. According to this Barbie? It's always been about one thing and one thing only: Family. "I feel like I was put here to be a mother," the Fefe hitmaker explained. Sure enough, since welcoming Papa Bear last year, nothing's been the same.
Sure, she recently came out of retirement. But don't get it twisted: Minaj is all about that mom life. "I just want to be Mommy," the rapper assured. "Take them to school, go to the parent-teacher conference, help them with their homework, and put their work on the refrigerator."
Let's face it - he's no stranger to baby mama drama. But as far as this Mask Off rapper is concerned? His future has never looked brighter (had to). The alleged father of 8 hasn't been shy about life behind closed doors. Whether it's another red-carpet debut or selfie on the 'gram, expect to see lots more of his little ones.
But let's talk about 7-year-old Future Zahir, otherwise known as Baby Future. Not only do the two share the same name, drip, and designer taste, but back in 2019, Future's mini-me was granted the ultimate gift: a gold-plated Rolex Datejust. Because what Kindergartner doesn't want a $30,000 watch?
From feuding with his baby mama to fending off the haters, Wiz's road to parenthood hasn't always been the smoothest. But that's okay. In fact, as far as the Khalifa Kush mogul's concerned? There's only one thing that matters at the end of the day - besides for, well, ya know...
His little man: 8-year-old Sebastian Taylor. "I'm so confident in my parenting skills and what I have to offer," the artist assured. "My relationship is with my son. As long as he's good, I don't listen to too much of the outside noise." Honestly, we can't argue with that one.
If there's one guy Tyga loves to spoil more than himself? It's, no doubt, his son. Forget the rapper's car collection or iced-out wrists - King Cairo is also cashing in on life as a Stevenson. Then again, would we expect anything less from the Rack City rapper's mini-me?
At just 9-years-old, Tyga's little man certainly enjoys the finer things in life. "He likes everything I like: cars, women, jewelry," the rapper joked. So much so, though, that dad had to establish some ground rules. "I'm trying to cut back on him with the gifts... I have to kind of teach him that I work for everything." We respect it.
Iggy Azalea doesn't mess around with it comes to her pride and joy. No, really. "Know that I will smack you in person, and so will his dad [Playboi Carti]," the Kream rapper warned after her followers had some, um, not-so-nice words about her son's outfit choices.
Can we really blame her? We will say this: don't sleep on baby Onyx's wardrobe. "Please do know he has a closet full of sneakers and more designer than... you... will ever have," the rapper assured of her suave 1-year-old. Noted. Though we might just have to check it out for ourselves...
Love him or hate him, Tekashi is never one to do things quietly. Safe to say, his road to fatherhood is no exception. From feuding baby mamas to fiery court hearings, the Fefe rapper has seen it all. But the proud father of 2 has got nothing but love for his blended family.
While he has yet to meet his 2nd daughter - according to recent court documents - the Brooklyn native hasn't been shy documenting his eldest daughter, 6-year-old Saraiyah, on our feeds. "My daughter is my creation, I created her. I deserve to have my daughter whenever I wanna have her," he explained amid the ongoing custody battle.
With 6 multi-platinum singles and $5 million in the bank - as CelebrityNetWorth puts him - Lil Baby's rise to the top has truly gone unmatched. The Yes Indeed rapper has already made big moves to secure his legacy - and we're not just talking about his time in the studio.
"Everything I'm doing is really for my kids," the father of 2 explained. "Once you get older, you start to look at life differently... so I need more children to continue the legacy." With his 6-year-old son Jason (above) already the owner of his own business, Baby's legacy is already looking pretty impressive...
Savage by day, superhero by night? The Slaughter King has become a force to be reckoned with in the music biz. But when he's not busy slaying the charts or adding more Millions to his bank account, the Bank Account rapper has his sights set elsewhere: His 3 children.
"As far as my kids, I try to be more like a superhero than a role model," he explained. From cartoons all night to candy for snack, we're sure his little ones - including Kamari, above - have no complaints. "I don't want them to go through what I went through... so I spoil the **** out of my kids." Where do we sign up?
Fetty's road from Jersey to Hollywood hasn't been easy. From time behind bars to troubles at home, the Paterson rapper (real name Willie Maxwell II) has been open about his rags to riches journey. Unfortunately, tragedy struck the Maxwell household this past summer.
"They say that souls can feel your love, RIP," the rapper announced, after his 4-year-old daughter, Lauren, passed from a heart defect. Nonetheless, Fetty will continue to be a devoted family man to his 5 other children, including Khari Barbie (above). "Pieces of my heart. It's them over anything or anybody," he explained.
Contrary to his music, T.I.'s little ones cannot have whatever they like. But don't take our word for it: since 2011, the Whatever You Like rapper and wife, Tiny, have been documenting life as a family of 9 - every showdown, doctor's visit, and scandal in between.
Back in 2019, the artist caught some major flack after revealing he attends 20-year-old daughter Deyjah's (above) doctor checkups. "We have yearly trips to the gynecologist," he confessed, after publicly giving her the birds and the bees talk. We'll just leave that one there…
He might know how to love, but that's not where Weezy's skills end. The How to Love legend is proud father to 4 children and will be the first to hit 'em with some words of wisdom when the time calls for it. But why don't we let his eldest do all the talking here?
"My father told me that sometimes when people don't know love themselves, they can't love other people, and you can't blame them for that," 23-year-old Reginae revealed after calling it quits with YFN Lucci back in 2020. Spitting facts, as always, Tunechi.
The Notorious B.I.G.
When a 1997 drive-by claimed this late legend's life, the hip-hop world lost a real one. But so did his wife and 2 kids, T'yanna Dream and C. J. Wallace. Fast forward to today, and Big Poppa's legacy will live on forever thanks to his living legends.
Sure, they've got big shoes to fill. After all, "The Wallace name is big," as 23-year-old T'yanna herself (above) explained. But as far as Biggie's eldest is concerned? "I try to just continue the legacy." From dropping a line of merch, Notoriouss Clothing, to sharing throwback snaps on the 'gram, we'd say she's doing just that.
When he's not busy in the studio or slaying in the kitchen alongside Martha, Uncle Snoop is simply, "pops." The Drop It Like It's Hot legend is proud father to 4 grown children. And something tells us they're already making him very proud. Look no further than 24-year-old Cordell.
Towering at 6'3", Snoop's second-oldest clearly takes after his father. These days, ya can catch the retired athlete working as an NFT artist when he's not busy hitting the red carpet with Snoop (above). Oh, and did we mention he has 2 kids of his own? Uncle Snoop is looking more like Grandpa Snoop these days…
The Game will always keep it 100, even when it comes to his blood. In fact, last father's day, the Hate It Or Love It hitmaker took to the 'gram to with some, um, choice words for his 2 sons and daughter. Consider this a learning lesson for the rest of us...
"It's the disrespect for me," he shaded his kids for their lack of Father's Day wishes. "I'm not saying go out and buy… a Lamborghini… but… to really have nothing to show for it... unacceptable." While his little ones clearly had lots of making up to do, we can't quite see The Game staying mad at his little princess, California (above).
His time spitting bars has, no doubt, been controversial. But let's talk about his time outside the studio. Back in April, the Thotiana rapper landed himself in hot water after a live stream gone wrong. As his baby mama alleged, he'd skipped out on his 4-year-old's birthday to take part in the Twitch Q&A.
Nonetheless, it appears Blueface has got nothing but love for his little man, Javaughn J. Porter. From car rides in dad's Corvette C8 to power-ranger-themed parties, the duo has been spending lots of time together. Then again, his unimpressed baby mama would probably say otherwise. Who's capping here? We'll let ya decide...
Kid Cudi is reborn - in every sense of the word. The Man on the Moon hitmaker hasn't been shy about his struggles in the spotlight. But with a kid now in the picture? He won't be taking anymore chances. And we've got "Princess Vada the chosen" to thank for that one.
"I can honestly say she was the wake-up call. The reality that it’s bigger than just you now – you have a responsibility and there’s no more time for mistakes," he confessed. From studio time with his 11-year-old daughter, Vada, to staying strong for her sake, we can't help but applaud this legend's growth.
Meek's rise to the top was no easy climb. Whether he's rapping about his time on the North Side or writing about it in Time, there's no denying how far he's come. But the Philly native is actually just getting started. "Now, I get to give my [sons] the life I never had," the rapper vowed.
"Everything I do, I do for [them]," the father of 3 explained. "All the shows, all the nights in the studio." While he's never had a father figure in his life, his kids, Murad, "Papi" (above), and Czar - who became a property owner on his 1st birthday back in May - are, no doubt, feeling all the love.
Sure, we already mentioned Kulture's dad - but what about mom? When she's not busy making hit songs or goofing off on the 'gram, Cardi B is busy being a proud mother to her two kids. In 2018, she and her baby daddy welcomed their first daughter, Kulture (below). More recently, the two had a son together just last year.
The Bodak Yellow artist seems to adore motherhood. Cardi B revealed, "I'm sooo in love with my child. It makes me wanna cry. I don't know what I did right for God to bless me with this beautiful, loving baby." We can't imagine how happy she must be now that she has two!
Ice Cube's eldest of four is probably the most similar to him. O'Shea Jackson Jr. and his famous father are so alike that the then 24-year old was even cast to play the young version of Ice Cube in the movie Straight Outta Compton. Jackson Jr. has always planned on following in his dad's footsteps.
Not only is he a successful actor, but he too is a rapper. It started with a feature on Ice Cube's song Y'all Know How I Am. And from there, he went on to release his first mixtape, Jackin For Beats, in 2012. Ice Cube said, "My son, O'Shea. He looks like me, and he can rhyme."
Over the years, Dr. Dre has welcomed 9 children. He once said, "Kids are the ultimate form of motivation. They're watching. They're mimicking. They're an extension of you. So you have to win." While some of his children prefer to keep their lives private, others don't shy away from the limelight.
The 56-year olds youngest daughter, Truly Young, is one of the 9 who consistently post on social media. From snaps of her studying at the University of California to ones of her modelling, the 21-year old doesn't shy away from sharing her glamorous lifestyle on Instagram.
Within the span of one month, Nas released his first album and welcomed his first-born daughter in 1994. Although the 48-year old rapper wasn't always there for Destiny Jones, it seems like the two have still maintained a strong relationship. Nas even wrote a song about her titled Daughters.
These days, Jones is the owner of the makeup brand, Matic Cosmetics. She said, “My dad definitely taught me to focus on what I’m doing and not get distracted by anyone else. I have my own vision and my own road. He taught me to trust myself and be confident.”
LL Cool J
LL Cool J and his wife Simone Smith had 4 kids throughout their marriage. Although the rapper has been in the public eye for a while, he chose not to raise his kids in the limelight. His oldest son, for example, Najee Smith, is a professional photographer. But the I'm Bad artist youngest chose a similar path to her dad.
Nina Simone also has musical talents. The 21-year-old dropped her debut single on her 19th birthday, Call Me. Although her father is known in the music industry as a rapper, Nina opted for a different genre: R&B. "It was a great choice… as her voice is beautiful, and it matches perfectly with the genre," reported Amo Mama.
