Soulja Boy has formally started the parenting process. The rapper and his fiancée Jackilyn “Jackie” Martinez welcomed their first kid together, and the rapper today released pictures of the family’s newest member (Sept. 30). The couple revealed they were expecting a son back in March, as REVOLT previously reported.
In a recent Instagram post, Jackie announced the couple’s gender reveal and said, “We are blessed with a baby boy. I’m eager to meet you, little Draco. Soulja Boy shared the news on his social media pages as well. The pair previously shared photos from a lovely maternity photoshoot earlier this month, and now they’ve turned to Instagram to share shots of their unborn child.
The “Crank Dat (Soulja Boy)” emcee captioned a photo of himself cradling his son with the phrase “Lil Soulja.” Your dad loves you. Along with welcoming their first child, Soulja Boy also celebrated the birthday of the mother of his child today.
The 32-year-old performer wished her a “happy birthday to my queen.” You have the day today. You are the very best. The Atlanta emcee Soulja Boy has persisted in leading the charge despite making jokes in the past about his inventiveness.
During an appearance on “Assets Over Liabilities,” he said, “I was the first rapper to get paid on YouTube,” emphasising that he created baiting the trolls back in 2006.
“That s**t I started. I once informed all of my detractors that I receive five cents for each view. I was capping, but the animosity subsided.
This was back when nobody really understood what it meant to create content and get compensated for it. Soulja Boy got a $1 million contract with Interscope at the age of just 17. He acknowledged that it wasn’t only about the coins for him, even though he did like the upfront lump sum. Big Draco claimed, “I signed for the celebrity, not the money.
