G.O.O.D Music’s Big Sean recently talked about Kanye West and girlfriend Kim Kardashian becoming parents and the backlash they have received over naming their newborn daughter North West.
Along with standing behind KimYe’s baby name, Sean revealed a personal conversation he had with Kanye about falling in love.
“No, but I’ve talked to Ye about North. I’ve not yet met North,” Sean revealed in an interview. “I heard it was a little baby, too. People trying to talk sh*t about that name. I feel like if I met a pretty girl and came up to me like, ‘Hi, my name is North.’ I’d be like, ‘Oh sh*t.’ We’ve talked briefly and what I’ve said to him is, ‘I remember when you and Kim were just flirting and sh*t and now you got a baby together and in love.’ That’s really tight to sit back and think about. He was like, ‘I know man, right? We was talking about that sh*t in my kitchen.’ I was like, ‘I know, man. Now you got a baby. Life is crazy.’ They’re truly happy — it’s some real sh*t they got.” (“Sway in the Morning”)
Recent reports suggested KimYe did not go with the unique name based off its directional meaning.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were not inspired by a compass when they named their kid North … fact is, the name’s more inspirational than directional. Sources close to K & K tell TMZ … they chose the name North because they see it as a metaphor for “up”, telling friends, “What’s North of North? Nothing.” Translation … nothing better. We’re told the duo believes baby North is their highest point together as a couple … the pinnacle of the relationship … and they consider her their “North Star.” Kinda sweet. Almost makes ya feel bad for mocking it, right? Almost. (TMZ)
Recently, Sean said he believed Ye and Kim’s daughter will undoubtedly be beautiful.
He hasn’t yet seen Kim and Kanye’s newborn daughter North West, and was just as surprised by her name. “That’s the name for real, huh?” asked Sean. “I know she’s a beautiful little girl, I’m sure. Those guys are two good looking people, right? So they not gonna make no ugly babies.” (Rap-Up)
New York rapper N.O.R.E. recently said the newborn will undoubtedly get connected to him through her nickname.
“I’m just stoked,” he told us on Friday (June 21) over the phone after he completed his morning jog. “There’s a lot of children named after Nas, there’s people named after Pun, there’s people named after Biggie, Jay-Z, so on and so forth, and I’m just honored that her nickname remotely sounds like my name.” (MTV)
