On Saturday, the new mom shared the first photos of her newborn son. Her Instagram slideshow received over 5.3 million likes from fans and friends including 50 Cent, who reposted Nicki’s baby boy on his own page and gushed over the adorable infant.
“look at them cheeks, we got another winner I would say south side but this baby rich,” 50 captioned his post. “look at him i think he know he rich already.”
“Y’all can call him Papa Bear but I’m calling him Richie Rich,” said 50.
In the comments, Nicki responded to 50, who has two sons of his own. “I know u bout to have another one real soon,” she wrote, to which he replied, “Why not nicki somebody gotta take over when we done.”
The rappers have maintained a friendship throughout the years. Back in July, 50 praised Minaj, who also grew up in Queens, New York.
“I love me some Nicki. This n***a actually happens to come from my neighborhood. It happens to be a girl, but that n***a is tough!” he told Lil Wayne on Young Money Radio. “She be harder than the n***a she f**k with. She be harder and she’s an alpha female! That motherf**ker tough!”
50 recently dropped a video for “Part of the Game,” his new song featuring NLE Choppa and Rileyy Lanez, which serves as the theme for his upcoming Starz series, “Power Book III: Raising Kanan.”
