Amber took to Twitter on Monday, letting fans know that baby Bash finally had a chance to meet his godfather this week, and it’s none other than Wiz’s close friend and collaborator Curren$y. “Yay! I’m so excited 4 Sebastian 2 meet his godfather @CurrenSy_Spitta today!” she tweeted. “This Lil boy has so much family & Love… It’s such a blessing.”
Curren$y, clearly honored to be named godfather, promptly replied to Amber, writing, “he’s a king….. The family is royal …. See yall soon.”
Spitta has collaborated with Wiz on projects like their popular mixtape How Fly, but he also has a well-documented friendship with the new father. Back in 2010, the BFFs headed out on an MTV News “First Date” together, where they took turns gushing about each other’s best qualities.
They revealed that they initially bumped into each other at a smoke shop — surprise, surprise! — and the rest is history. Since baby Bash was born on February 21, the couple has received plenty of well-wishes from their celebrity friends, including Rihanna, Russell Simmons, Taylor Gang’s Chevy Woods and Mac Miller.
Wiz was ecstatic to share news of his son’s birth on Twitter that night, tweeting, “Happy Birthday Sebastian “The Bash” Taylor Thomaz!!! Everyone welcome this perfect young man into the world.”
