Riley Curry, the 7-year-old daughter of three-time NBA champion Stephen Curry and Ayesha Curry is a rising star, and she has the bars to prove it. On an Instagram live alongside her parents and younger sister, 4-year-old Ryan Curry, Riley rapped the lyrics to the 2018 song “Coming In Hot” by Lecrae and Andy Mineo. Furthermore, rapper Lacrae joined them on Instagram Live so he could see young Riley perform his song.
With Stephen Curry playing the role of hype-man, Riley rapped the lyrics to the song without missing a beat. “So say what you say/ ‘Cause that’s A with Lecrae/ From the A-Train to the A/ I’m coming in hot!/ I don’t do the most but I do a lot,” rapped Riley. Lacrae was quite impressed, jamming along and dancing to Riley’s rap. When she finished, the Curry family cheered and Lacrae applauded Riley’s performance and praised her. “As soon as we get out of quarantine I’m done,” commented Lacrae. “I don’t even have to rap anymore. Riley, you got my job, you got it.”
Aside from watching their daughter rap, Ayesha and Stephen Curry have certainly been making the most of their extra family time since the NBA suspended its season on March 11 due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. Ayesha, who is a chef, cookbook author and restaurateur, recently announced her upcoming magazine, Sweet July in a short Instagram video featuring her entire family. As for Stephen, besides training as he waits for the NBA season to hopefully resume, he also teaches his youngest child, 1-year-old Canon Curry how to play golf and do pushups.
Stephen and Ayesha Curry also spend their time helping those who have been affected by the coronavirus. In March 2020, Stephen and Ayesha teamed up with a local food bank to provide over 1 million meals to Oakland students who cannot go to school due to coronavirus closures. “We know the world is changing before our eyes in terms of dealing with the spread of coronavirus and we just found out that the Oakland Unified School District is closing the doors for the foreseeable future,” said Stephen. “So we want to intercede on behalf of the kids that rely on the daily services and try to help anyway we can.”
