Just a couple of days after news broke of their son's name, A$AP Rocky shared an adorable Instagram post wishing his firstborn child with Rihanna, their son RZA, a happy first birthday. With it, he not only confirmed the name but paid further tribute to the Wu-Tang Clan, one of whose iconic members is the namesake of the little one. "'WU TANG IZ 4 DA CHUREN,'”Rocky wrote, referencing Wu member Ol' Dirty Bastard's historic (and interruptive) speech at the Grammys. "HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY TO MY 1st BORN. RZA." He also shared a lot of cute snaps with his kid and with RiRi.
What's more is that RZA's name puts the couple previous fits into mind-blowing context. Of course, there's a lot to choose from, as the two are always turning heads for their style and fashion sense. However, the hint was in our faces all along, albeit quite the hard hint to catch from just a sweater. While out on the town with A$AP Rocky, Rihanna was pictured wearing a Wu-Tang jersey, which is the kind of small tease that seems so intentional in hindsight.
Happy First Birthday, RZA! (No, Not That One)
As the couple expects their second child together, they've both spoken on the joys of parenthood. "It’s beautiful,” A$AP Rocky shared about being a father. “Honestly, I think fatherhood gives me more time to do exactly what I want. I don’t have time for anything that isn’t priorities. It helps you prioritize, honestly. I love it. Everything is just based around my newfound love for being a dad and a family man. It’s lit right now. I can’t even describe it. Yo, you see this smile! I’m all smiles right now, man.

"I’m in a place where I want to give my all to all of this,” he continued. “All I have is my craft, my art, my family. That’s just my life. I just want to give motherf***ers some dope s**t. They’re going to see. It’s going to be ill." Hopefully that next album comes sooner rather than later, especially considering that he's been spotted filming for something in Paris.
