Fabolous has a lifetime friend in his oldest son, Johan. The rapper recently shared pictures of him spending time with his little one with Instagram fans.
“True kings raise new kings,” Fabolous told social media fans. The celebrity dad also commented on Johan’s role as a big brother. “I didn’t know it then but being a big brother was training me to be a leader,” Fabolous shared along with a candid of Johan showing Jonas how to keep his balance while walking.
It has been four years since Johan began his journey on the runway as a child model. Although the youngster was not at all thrilled to make his fashion debut, Johan now lets his personality shine through while showing off the hottest styles in children’s wear.
Fabolous’ son recently served as one of the models for this year’s BKLYNROCKS show. “They say you’re suppose to just give your kids opportunities and let them decide what they like,” Fabolous said in reference to his son’s confidence while taking on the catwalk at the show.
Fabolous served as host for the BKLYNROCKS fashion event, which shed light on his foundation, A Fabolous Way. The nonprofit carries out the mission of empowering and instilling “a culture of achievement within the city of New York.”
Exploring various paths of artistry is something with which Fabolous can certainly identify. The rapper told Angie Martinez of Power 105.1 a few months back that he used to be a painter. “I was an artist,” Fabolous revealed. “I went to art and design high school and everything.”
When Angie asked the star why he refrained from sharing such accomplishment with his fanbase, Fabolous cited his stance as a hardcore rapper as the reason for his silence. “When I first came in, you know how quiet I was,” the rapper explained. “You have to be hard. I couldn’t come in and say I was an artist [while] trying to be a street rapper.” Fabolous did, however, admit that becoming a comic book artist wasn’t that far-fetched during his years as a drawing expert.
The ‘Faith In Me’ rapper has two kids, Johan and Jonas, with reality star Emily Bustamante. Johan turned 8-years-old in February, while Jonas celebrated his first birthday in June.
