Hip-hop is full of tough guys, gangsters, and players who openly promote their lack of respect for women and their disinterest in keeping just one and treating her right.
It’s in the lyrics, it’s in the lifestyle, and it’s certainly in the overall mentality that presides over the entertainment industry in general. We would never expect some of the guys – who have rapped about jail, drugs, and crime, or who can’t seem to keep their female count down to even 5 – to eventually go on to have daughters of their own, and in some aspects become total softies!
Yeezy (who once said “the world is cursed by monogamy”) lives for his little girl North West – he admitted in a very rare interview that Kim K. gave him something to live for again after Nori was born.
The Game – who is straight out of Compton – is his daughter’s hero. He absolutely melts when Cali bats those big brown eyes at him. Hov softened up some too, let’s admit it – Blue Ivy had him wrapped around her little finger since day one!
Little girls just have a way of being crazy adorable, so much so that even a hip-hop dad turns soft in their presence. Check out the baby girls who turned their dad into mush below.
Chief Keef is obviously someone who has been tied up in a lot of crime throughout his life. Still, his daughter Kay Kay brings out his inner good guy.
Aren’t they super cute together?
Lil Wayne has 4 different baby mommas, and his lyrics toward women definitely raise some eyebrows. Still, his girl Reginae is the light of life.
Lil’ Scrappy with a daughter of his own? Not smoking all that weed, going back and forth to jail, and trying to date every big booty girl in sight?
It’s true! We’ve seen Emani make the tough guy cry…. Aww!
International Blue, that’s her handle! Jay Z once wrapped, “See I got demons in my past, so I got daughters on the way.” Boy, was he right.
We’ve always known Diddy as a player, player but his girls – and Cassie – locked him down.
Too cute doesn’t quite cut it.
That’s Diddy’s daughter Chance and his twins D’Lila Star and Jessie James.
Floyd Mayweather still has lots of women to choose from, and he’s literally the toughest fighter in the world… but little Ayana is his number one.
After what Stevie J did to Mimi and Joseline on the past two seasons of Love & Hip-Hop: ATL, we can’t believe he has a little girl of his own – her name is Eva!
Meet the very precious Cali – she runs her dad, The Game. Whatever she says, goes.
2 Chainz never stops showing off his girls. We don’t believe he’s about that life he’s rapping about!
T.I., the self-proclaimed “Trouble Man,” keeps his daughter Deyjah close and she’s a beautiful young woman, so we can see why.
Bow Wow’s a pretty new dad and he loves his girl so much! Bow’s lost a few good women in his lifetime, though.
