With the arrival of a mini Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa this year comes excitement for the two rappers, their families, and their fans who will ride with them on their journey to first-time fatherhood. Since their professions are lucrative, creative, and flashy, you already know these two will come up with some way to celebrate the new life of their children that’s above and beyond what “normal” people would do. Here are ten things these chart-topping rhymers could possibly give their little ones.
If everything else on this list fails to happen, both men will definitely give all the love in their hearts to their children. It’s the best gift of all!
With parents this well off, we don’t want these children getting TOO spoiled! It may be too early to be thinking about giving Wiz and Kanye’s fetuses a brother or sister, but when most new parents have baby, they start to think about giving the child a lifelong playmate (or rival enemy, however you want to see it). No doubt these two rappers will let the thought pass through their minds. Surely they won’t mind practicing!
A Reality Show
This is more for the parents than for baby, but it’s almost fame bible to document your life on TV for all to see. Can’t you see E! or Oygen picking up a series with these two rappers playing daddy? Who wouldn’t want to see Kanye changing diapers while wearing his sunglasses with the slits, or Wiz warming up bottles while holding a freshly-rolled blunt? It would be pure entertainment!
A K Name
Between Kanye, Kim Kardashian, and all her “K” named siblings, there’s enough “K” sounds to start what sounds like a chorus of coughs. And for that reason, the soon-to-be parents may not choose a K name for their baby. But Kanye (being the word wiz that he is) may feel like he just can’t help himself, and give his offspring a “K” name to keep the uniformity, repetition, rhythm, and basically, the musicality of it all. The name “Kanye” is Igbo (Nigerian) meaning “to give honor.” Maybe Yeezy will continue with a non-traditionally American name. Try these out for size, Yeezy: Kaia (Wise Child), Kelechi (Glorify God), and Kalu (Young King).
An Arabic Name
What’s in a name? A lot! Wiz was born Cameron Jibril Thomaz, but his stage name is a repetition of the Arabic/Muslim word for wisdom. “Khalifa” was given to him by his grandfather who was Muslim. “He felt like that’s what I was doing with my music,” Wiz said about his grandfather’s name choice. Maybe Wiz will name his son something Arabic/Muslim to pass down the tradition. Here’s some suggestions, Wiz: How about Najam (Star), Katib (Writer, Scribe), Azhar (Most Shining, Luminous), or Fa’iz (Winner)?
A Bedazzled Binky
Kimye are poster children for the posh life and opulence. Kanye’s background as a rapper allows for opportunity to spoil the child with diamond encrusted baby items such as around the bottle lids, bibs, and on rattles. But how rapper fabulous would it be if the baby has a binky covered in diamonds and multi-colored jewels? If it doesn’t pacify the baby, it’ll definitely pacify the adults.
A Black and Yellow Nursery
Both Wiz and Amber are from Pennsylvania, Amber form Philly, Wiz from Pittsburgh. Wiz’s has already declared his affinity towards his home city in his hit song “Black & Yellow,” a shout-out to the Steelers football team. Even though there’s no word on what Amber’s favorite NFL team is (it just MAY be the Philly Eagles, but for the sake of their piece, we’re gonna assume it’s the Steelers), I’m sure she wouldn’t mind decking the nursery out in all black and yellow, being a Pennsylvania native and all. They’re having a boy, so that color scheme is still masculine. *shrug*
A Baby Shoe Line
Both Kanye and Kim K. are straight paper-chasers, their combined hustles profiting upwards of 100 millie. Kim has her own clothing, and Kanye designs clothing and shoes for Louis Vuitton and Nike, his collections even featured at Paris Fashion Week. Maybe he’ll give gift his first born with a shoe line of his/her own, a show collection for babies (“Kiddie Kimye Kicks” or something like that) and charge $200 for a pair of the soft-soled baby booties. Why not? His Limited Edition Air Yeezies 2 have previously sold for $90,000 on eBay, and retail regular for around $245. They say you gotta get the college fund started early, right?
A Lesson About Cannabis
This one is more for Wiz. He and Amber told E! News they won’t shelter their son when it comes to the green stuff, saying he’ll be raised around it, much like how alcohol is viewed in society as an adult-only substance. “He’s going to know what it is-and he’ll know the difference between being a child and not being able to use it and being an adult and knowing how to use it.” Amber added, “When you’re a kid, you know that you’re not supposed to drink alcohol, that it’s for adults and that’s it.”
Major Public Attention
Maybe not so much for Wiz, but we can definitely see Kanye flaunting his newborn in the press. Kimye is probably negotiating a price with Us Weekly as we speak for them to have first dibs on the first photos of the baby. Next time he’s on stage with Jay, he might stop the music and randomly declare, “Aye yo Jay, I don’t mean to disrespect you and Blue Ivy, and I’mma let y’all have the spotlight back in a sec, but my baby is one of the best celebrity babies of all time!”
