JAY-Z and Beyoncé with their twins
New York—Hip Pop royals JAY-Z and wife Beyoncé have finally revealed to their millions of fans and the world why they named their twins children Rumi and Sir.
In an interview with Elliott Wilson and Brian Miller of Rap Radar which was released on Friday, the 47-year-old Brooklyn native and one of the world greatest rapper and savvy businessman explained the source of their little twins’ names.
“Rumi is our favorite poet, so it was for our daughter,” the 4:44 rapper said. “Sir was like, man, come out the gate. He carries himself like that. He just came out, like, Sir.”
JAY-Z also explained his eldest daughter Blue Ivy’s freestyle on one of the bonus tracks added on his new album.
“I can’t even listen to that song no more,” JAY-Z expressed. “I only listen to her freestyle and then I’m like, ‘I can’t listen to this,'” saying that she had headphones on, climbed on a little stool and started rapping. “I booked the tour for October so I could have at least four months to just really bond and see their fingers and sh*t like that,” he explained. “They’ll be with me [on tour] anyway but I’m just saying, like, [I needed] a space where I’m not doing anything. I’m just focused on them. I’m not thinking about a show at night or anything like that. That’s why the tour is so far away from the release of the album.”
JAY-Z’s 4:44 was released on June 30 and the rapper’s huge fans base became intoned quickly with its lyrics.
