Want to know the secret to melting a gangsta rappers' heart? A baby. Or, more specifically, witnessing the birth of their first child.
Freddie Gibbs became a father over the weekend, and his tough persona all but disappeared while he gushed over his new daughter, Irie. The Gary, Indiana rapper, who calls himself "Gangsta Gibbs," chronicled the entire journey on Instagram, from the delivery room to capturing her first sneeze on video.
"About to have the biggest moment of my life. Today is the reason I ain't never get smoked or go to prison. Irie u gave me a purpose. See u in a minute little lady."
