Where were you at the end of 2012 when Kanye West and Kim Kardashian (Kimye) announced their pregnancy?
Well, actually, it was Kanye who spilled the beans: while live in concert in Atlantic City, the rapper paused his show to congratulate his “baby mama”, aka. Kim!
I’m actually happy for the expecting couple, and to offer my congratulations, I thought I’d round up three of Kanye’s best lyrics about being a parent! Check them out here…
“Hey Mama / I wanna scream so loud for you / ‘Cuz I’m so proud of you / And let me tell you what I’m about to do”From Kanye’s song “Hey Mama“, these lyrics were written for the hip hop star’s late mother, but they work wonderfully as a dedication to Kim and her upcoming motherhood.
“Yes, I did, so I packed it up and brought it back to the crib / Just a lil’ somethin’ show you how we live” Kanye’s “Champion” is a song written about his his father, which also fits into our parenthood theme. We know that when Mr. West says “crib”, he’s talking about his home, but we think these lyrics would totally work about their future baby’s actual crib!
“See, I just want ‘im to have an easy life, not like Yeezy life / Just want ‘im to be someone people like / Don’t want ‘im to be hated, all the time judged / Don’t be like your daddy that would never budge”Taken from Kanye West and Jay-Z’s effort Watch The Throne’s “New Day“, this beautiful ode to both.
