5 Reasons Kanye West Will Be A Better Dad Than You Might Think

Reason #1: Kanye wants his son to have "an easy life, not the Yeezy life"
Remember when Jay-Z and Kanye connected to record "New Day" for Watch The Throne? If not, it's a song where they both rapped about being fathers. And, Kanye's verse was particularly interesting because it featured him talking about how he's going to teach his son NOT to do most of the things that he's done in his life. "I'll never let my son have an ego," he raps, "He'll be nice to everyone, wherever we go." Good idea.
Reason #2: "New Day" wasn't the first song that featured Kanye rapping about his unborn child.
Back in 2005, when he was creating Late Registration, 'Ye recorded a track called "Celebration" that featured him rapping about the son that he didn't have yet. On that song, he referred to his son as his "favorite accident" and rapped about getting his girlfriend pregnant when they were just "practicing" (if you catch his drift). But, nonetheless, fatherhood was on Kanye's mind. So, he's been thinking about this moment for awhile now.
Reason #3: Kanye isn't in the club every night anymore.
Once upon a time, 'Ye was spotted out and about almost every night. But, now that he's a little bit older, he doesn't seem to spend as much time posted up at the club. Instead, he's recording music in the studio, designing sneakers at his apartment, or doing one of the other nine zillion things that he does to keep his lights on. So, if nothing else, 'Ye will have the time to be there for his baby—even if that means skipping one or two trips to Hawaii.
Reason #4: Kanye is a family man.
Kanye West loved his mother. A lot. He wrote songs about her. He made sure she lived comfortably. And, when she passed away, he mourned for a long time. In recent years, he's also been spotted taking in NBA games with his father and spending time with his pops. So, it's clear that he values family time and taking care of those people who are closest to him. With that in mind, he's going to have one spoiled child.
Reason #5: Kanye always wants to be the best at everything he does.
When was the last time Kanye did something half-heartedly? Whether he's recording new music or putting the finishing touches on his clothing line, he wants to do everything better than anyone else has ever done it. So, why would you think that fatherhood would be any different? Get his "#1 DAD" T-shirt ready. He's coming for it.
