Jay-Z may be an O.G. in hip-hop, but he’s still a newbie when it comes to parenting. However, his rap peer T.I. knows a thing or two about being a family man. During an interview with Fuse, the father of six shared some fatherly advice for Mr. Carter, whose daughter Blue Ivy is four months old.
“Little girls are going to judge men they meet in the future based off how their father treated them,” said the star of VH1’s “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle.” “You’ve got to be her first love, her first everything so when she run into nonsense in the street then she’ll know, ‘Nah, my daddy would never do it like that, so this isn’t even worth my time or attention.'”
He added, “Another piece of advice is enjoy the moments. Enjoy the moments because once they’re gone, they’re gone.”
Tip couldn’t stop smiling when speaking about his son King. “King, when he was small, he had the fattest little cheeks. He just looked like a cute lil’ baby boy,” he recalled. “Then he started stretching out and getting long. … Now I need another baby. You miss those baby moments.”
The King also confirmed that B.o.B and Taylor Swift will be shooting a video for their collaboration “Both of Us.” “That’s just a phenomenal record,” he said. “No matter what genre of music you love the most, you have to be able to appreciate a record like that. When two people from completely different walks of life have nothing to bring them together but the love of music and they put their passion on wax for you, you gotta appreciate that.”
