Rihmeek Williams is a bilingual celebrity kid thanks to Blue Ivy Carter. Meek Mill tells Rap-Up that Jay-Z and Beyonce’s daughter inspired him to get his son get acquainted with French.
“My son is five years old. He goes to a great school. It amazes me to see my son be able to speak French,” Meek says. “I actually got that from Jay Z,” he adds. “I was on a plane with Jay Z one day and he was on FaceTime with his daughter and she was two years old. She was speaking Spanish. To me, I thought that was stuntin’. I was like, ‘That’s just stuntin’ on a whole different type of level.’ The moment I went home, I called up my son’s mom like, ‘We gotta find a new school, a higher level.’ That’s stuntin’.”
Fatherhood and fame have changed Mill’s perspective and creative process. “I don’t want to always touch on violence all the time,” he says of his music. “I want to give a message to the young kids: get some money, take care of your family. Growing up, ‘gangsta’ to me was, you had to be robbing, you had to be killing, you had to do a lot of stuff. My new definition of ‘gangsta’ is go get your mom a house.”
Meek Mill is the proud father of two kids. Rihmeek is the rapper’s oldest son.
