8 Hip-Hop Dads Who Are Twinning With Their Kids
There's a lot that rapper fathers will do for their kids. Whether they're giving them the limelight in their music videos like Wiz Khalifa did with Sebastian "Bash" Taylor Thomaz, or listing them as executive producers on highly anticipated albums like DJ Khaled did with his son, Asahd, these guys have let it be known that no gift is too big. One that they could have never projected, however, was their gift of genes.
If some of these kids acquired their parent's talent traits, then we'll have another Diddy, 50 Cent and JAY-Z on our hands before we know it. Their children have inevitably inherited the looks of their fathers, down to their faces, posture and swag. They're literally walking split images, and within the next decade, we're sure to see them standing on their own without their parent's backing.
Diddy's son, King Combs, is already making waves in his teens, following in the steps of his father. "Paid in Full," his cypher with CYN, has already garnered over half a million views, and he's begun to make his name as a model, most recently walking in a Dolce & Gabbana show. Like father, like son. Literally. The Game's son, Harlem, is veering off in another direction from his dad, as he's taken up a serious love and interest for the game of basketball. He's currently preparing for the ninth grade, and as his father has stated, is planning to make the team for the McDonald's All-American game in the next few years.
In the spirit of Father's Day this month, XXL has put together of list of six rappers who could have birthed their kids without us thinking twice based off their looks alone. Take a look, then a double-take, at these twinning families.
