Rapper, Lil’ Kim Gives Birth to Baby Girl and Names Her Royal Reign

Photo via InstagramThe 39-year-old rapper and her baby’s father— New York city rapper, Mr. Papers— welcomed their little bundle of joy into the world today.

According to reports shared with E! Online the rapper gave birth this morning around 9:58am to a 6lb, 5 ounce baby girl.

Ever since she stepped on the scene Lil’Kim has always been known as the infamous Queen of Hip-hop.

Rapping and flaunting her way to the top of the charts in the mid 90s with hits like No Time ft. Puff Daddy, Lil’ Kim has always held her own (with the best of them) on the royal hip-hop court.

And with the birth of her little princess, Kim makes no mistake in letting people know that her “reign” won’t end; as she dons her daughter with a very bold and distinct name: Royal Reign.

Congratulations to the original queen of hip-hop and we look forward to watching little miss Royal grow.

The Son of Late Rapper Biggie Smalls (Christopher Wallace, Jr. ) Graduates High School

BIGGIE JR

Last week, Christopher Wallace, Jr., the son of late rapper Christopher “Biggie Smalls” Wallace and Faith Evans graduated from St. Monica Catholic High School in Los Angeles, CA.Pictures were posted to social networks and people poured in celebratory salutations to the young king on his accomplishment.

Controversy ignited as a photo posted by the teen with the caption “no sus”  was filtered  around the internet. One blogger (Sandra Rose) threw an aggressive stab at the 17-year-old graduate and broadcasted a very distasteful and snarky remark on Twitter:

“#GayPride Christopher Wallace & Faith Evans son CJ Graduates”

 

In addition to the tweet Rose created a blog post about Faith and the Notorious B.I.G.’s son which set Faith Evans a blaze and prompted a rather nasty retort. Faith tweeted:

“@SandraRose  eat a hundred d*@#$!”

Now this is a messy situation but down to the bones of this matter comes the responsibility of bloggers to take better approaches when reporting what they assume is news. Sandra Rose was clearly being a Troll. Regardless of Cee Jay’s sexual preference there are different ways to go about filtering information. Plus he’s a child. Why take away from his happy day of accomplishment and celebration with meaningless dribble?

All in all Congrats once more to the young man for accomplishing a feat that his late father was not able to make.
