With the idiosyncratic sound, taste and aestheticism of music and entertainment ATL-ien Andre 3000, practically anyone could easily pick him out of a crowd.
But only in the case that his son Seven Sirius Benjamin, who resembles his father so closely that Andre could have practically spit him out, isn’t in that same crowd.
Seven Sirius hit the big 20 on his birthday last Saturday (November 18), celebrated by his mother, iconic soulstress Erykah Badu, in the most ordinary proud mom manner ever: a photo for her social media followers.
“Happy 20 Seven Sirius,” she wrote on Instagram beneath a photo of her new 20-year-old. “11/18/97…You are ‘some pig.’
If you hadn’t read the caption, however, you definitely would have done a double take on the picture. Seven Sirius has his father’s genetics down to a science, from his eyes to his nose and mouth, all the way down to his still-faced expression. Throw a black-and-white filter on the photo, and it could easily be mistaken for a throwback of Andre himself at 20 years old.
It’s worth noting that Fat Belly Bella has been generous with the photos of her children as of late as well. Recently, she posted flicks from her Vogue Mexico shoot with her 13-year-old daughter, Puma Sabati Curry, who also happens to be her mother’s twin.
Lucky kids, indeed.
See how Seven, a.k.a. Andre’s 20-year-old doppelganger, inherited the beautiful genes in the photo below.
