Long before Kanye even knew he was going to be a father, he knew how he wanted to raise his child! In his song ‘New Day,’ the rapper gives some insight into the kind of father he will be.
Now that Kanye West, 35, has shared the big news that he and Kim Kardashian, 32, are having a baby, it’s time for him to start preparing to be a father! Luckily, the rap star has already put some thought into what kind of parent he wants to be.
Kim and Kanye are both mega celebrities, so it’s basically guaranteed that their baby will have instant celebrity status. Although their baby is already famous before he or she is even born, Kanye wants their child to be grounded and humble.
In the song “New Day” Kanye writes, “And I’ll never let my son have an ego/He’ll be nice to everyone, wherever we go/I mean, I might even make ’em be Republican/So everybody know he love white people/And I’ll never let ’em leave his college girlfriend/And get caught up with the groupies in the whirlwind.”
Although Kanye has led the glamorous life of a superstar, he has different plans for his children. The rapper knows first hand the pressures of the spotlight — and he doesn’t want that for his child.
Kanye raps, “And I’ll never let ’em ever hit the telethon/I mean even if people dyin’ and the world ends/See, I just want him to have an easy life, not like Yeezy life/Just want him to be someone people like/Don’t want him to be hated, all the time judged/Don’t be like your daddy that would never budge/And I’ll never let him ever hit a strip club/I learned the hard way, that ain’t the place to get love.”
However, the most interesting part of the song is when Kanye talks about his child’s mother.
Kanye says, “And I’ll never let his mom move to L.A./Knowin’ she couldn’t take the pressure, now we all pray.”
It sounds like Kanye wasn’t planning for his baby’s mama to also live the Hollywood lifestyle. It looks like Kim and Kanye will have to work extra hard if they plan to keep their child out of the spotlight.
However Kim and Kanye decide to raise their child, it’s clear that Kanye already has a good core set of values he wants his children to have.
