Limos and Go Karts were all in preparation for Kasseem Dean Jr.’s birthday. Mashonda and Swizz Beatz celebrated their son’s impending birthday this past weekend at Pole Position Raceway in New York.


Kasseem had a number of celebrity friends by his side as he took a ride around the various tracks at the venue. Prince Joso, son of Fabolous and Emily B, was one of several star kids to stop by the bash. Egypt and Prince, Kasseem’s brothers, were also in attendance.

Little Kasseem took to Instagram to talk about his impending ninth birthday. “It’s almost my bday,” exclaimed the youngster. He also shared pictures from his limo and Go Kart parties.

Although his parents are no longer a couple, they work together to ensure that Kasseem has a strong family base. “Co-parenting is not about your feelings, or those of your ex-spouse, but rather about your child’s happiness, stability, and future well-being,” Mashonda wrote in one open letter. The singer was giving advice to other single parents.

“Let what’s best for your kids—you working cooperatively with the other parent—motivate your actions,” she advised. “Friends, therapists, or even a loving pet can all make good listeners when you need to get negative feelings off your chest. Exercise can also be a healthy outlet for letting off steam.”

Kasseem Dean Jr. is Mashonda’s only child with Swizz Beatz. He will celebrate his ninth birthday on December 22, 2015.
