Say what you will about New Jersey rapper Fetty Wap’s head-butting band of baby mamas and estranged hip-hop departure, but you have to give the 27-year-old dad of seven his props when it comes to fatherhood, beginning with his eldest son, Aydin Maxwell.
While on daddy duties with young Aydin in what appears to be a studio, Fetty revealed to his fans that the 7-year-old dropped a tear-jerking bomb on him: he wants to follow in his dad’s footsteps and take on the music game when he grows up. But instead of grabbing the mic for bars, Aydin will be grabbing the mic for croons.
The 7-year-old is singing word for word along to Logan Paul and Why Don’t We’s “Help Me Help You” track in the clip. Fetty admires his eldest son jamming along to the single from a distance, captioning the moment with touching fatherly sentiments that would yank a tear from any parent.
Fetty wrote on the video. “I just don’t wanna f**k up, I love you son, I’m not the best but I’ll shake the world for you & your lil sisters n your brother.” Fetty continued the loving ode to his son, explaining that he wants him to succeed even further past his own career milestones and apologizing for not being the best example he knows he’s capable of being. “But nobody can be your father better than me and I will prove it to you,” Fetty wrote. “4Life my son I will never leave your side 5:05 pm on 5/1/11 you were born I had a chance to be there I thank you for letting me be your dad Aydin I appreciate you soo much.”
