A Daughter’s First Love: 14 Rappers Share Tender Moments With Their Baby Girls

They say only a man can usher a boy into manhood, but father-daughter relationships are as equally important. Considering the mental, emotional and physical changes young girls are prone to, her confidence, self-image and capability to love and trust others will likely be shaped by the influence of her male guardian. And just like every one else in the world, hip-hop stars have families of their own. Some of our most beloved (and hardcore) are fathers to little girls coming into their own, right before our eyes. The likes of Jay Z and Nas have even sung their praises on wax. Others, like The Game and Dave East, show off their precious jewels via social media any chance they get. Here are 15 daddy-daughter moments from some of your favorite MCs…

Ain’t nobody gone beg you to be a father to your own child. That’s a gift from God that you should be grateful for from the moment it is given. Today, I salute all of the REAL FATHERS across the globe for doing whatever necessary to ensure your child is loved & cared for the way they should be. Let’s take a load off their mothers this weekend & go the extra mile for our little ones…… & for the dead beat dad’s out there, use this message as a reminder & STEP UP to the plate now or just disappear… the world is full of good men who will jump into that roll ready to give that child everything they need to ensure they live a beautiful life. The love I have for my daughter & sons should not be taken lightly….. I’m strongly thinking about adopting a child a month from different places all over the world just to assist in areas left void by these bum niggas out here…… enjoy your weekend – Jayceon aka (DADDY).
