UDPATE: Gawker is reporting that the couple who reportedly named their newborn twins Ghostface and Raekwon was actually joking. They points out the dad, Dan Lieberman, took to Facebook to inform worried friends and family that the whole thing was just a hoax. It sucks because this was such an amazing story. Touché Lieberman, touché.
The Wu-Tang Clan’s impact on the hip-hop masses is uncanny, but it’s hard to find a more evident example than the couple who recently named their twin boys after two of the group’s more prominent members, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah (sans the Killah). Earlier today, the Chef took to his Instagram account to relay the news of his newborn namesake. In the picture, apparently sent to him by the family, the babies can be seen snoozing in their hospital cribs with the birth certificate forms with the name sections filled out as “Ghostface” and “Raekwon” in clear view. “This is live, family named their twins Raekwon & ghostface!!! #wu4thebabies,” Rae posted in the caption. With a name like Ghostface, we’re not sure this family is setting up their child for a better tomorrow.
