Just because rappers like to boast about their wealth and long list of accomplishments doesn't mean that they can't be family-oriented people, too. The proof comes in the form of these 12 songs, in which famous rappers had their kids lay down a few lines alongside them. From baby heart beats to full on verses (to Snoop Dogg's daughter basically taking over the song flawlessly), these are the musical collaborations that keep it all in the family.
When you think of Will Smith’s kids, you immediately recall Jaden and Willow, but it was Will’s first son, Trey, who joined in on both the audio and video of “Just the Two of Us.”
Blue Ivy does about the only two things babies know how to do in the song dedicated to her just after her birth. In the track, you can hear her heartbeat at the opening and precious cries at the close.
Big Boi’s son has what is maybe the cutest feature ever on “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.”
Biggie’s daughter Tyanna opens “One More Chance” with a line we’re pretty sure she didn’t come up with by herself.
At the end of the newest Wiz Khalifa song, his and Amber Rose’s son, Sebastian, talks to Wiz for a while and then adorably mimics his Dad’s laugh.
Eminem frequently raps about his family, but he has also had his kids join in from time to time. In “My Dad’s Gone Crazy,” you can hear Hailie exclaim the song’s title throughout the chorus. Of course, we hear Eminem himself talk about her in his songs such as “Mockingbird” and “Hailie's Song."
Ice Cube is joined by his sons on “She Couldn’t Make It on Her Own” and “Y’all Know How I Am.” The threesome all look exactly alike, which is one of the many reasons OMG made such a good Ice Cube in the movie “Straight Outta Compton.”
So… they’re not actually related, but the father/son relationship is (well, was) real, as even Birman has said “My proudest moment was watching my son [Lil Wayne] emerge.” The pair appear together on “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy,” “Bling, Bling,” and “I Run This.”
Snoop Dogg’s daughter joins him for a song that makes you believe she’s a Daddy’s Girl. Snoop has also featured Cori on “No Guns Allowed” and “Do My Thing.”
Hit-Boy and Big Hit flipped the status quo with son, Hit-Boy, paving the way for Big-Hit to join him on “Grindin’ My Whole Life,” “Rude Awakening” and “G’z Don’t Cry.”
Producer Statik used his daughter’s heartbeat in “Harleys’s Blues” to help bring awareness to HG (hypermesis gravidarum), which is a disease that causes complications with pregnancy.
Master P isn’t just Master P, he’s also the father of Romeo, who as a teenager had his own career acting and rapping. Romeo joined in his Dad’s album “Ghetto Bill” by rapping in “I Need Dubs,” as well as joining in for the music video.
