Hip Hop Father Figures
Happy Father's Day from HNHH!
In celebration of Father's Day, we've compiled a photo gallery of 25 emcees with their children. Some of them have been in the game for years and have built large families. Others are new parents with a long way to go, among them Jay-Z, King Los and Kanye West, who brought a child into the world this weekend, just in time for Father's Day 2013.
Many of the artists included on this list are hardly perfect fathers - the lifestyle of a travelling musician doesn't leave much room for quality time with the kids. But we assume they do their best (for the most part), supporting and showering their children with love whenever possible.
To all the real dads out there, keep doing what you do - you're appreciated. As for the deadbeats, it's never too late to try and make amends. Consider it.
Even if you won't be seeing your old man today, make sure to let him know how you feel, one way or another.
