The 35-year-old soon-to-be-father wants to record child-friendly rap based on 'Green Eggs and Ham' and 'The Cat in the Hat' for his unborn kid with his reality star girlfriend.
Hip-hop superstar Kanye West reportedly wants to record child-friendly rap for his yet-to-be-born baby with reality star Kim Kardashian. It will be based on Dr. Seuss' classic children's stories "Green Eggs and Ham" and "The Cat in the Hat", and West allegedly wants Kardashian to do some of the vocals now while she's carrying the child as he thinks it will be cool when his son or daughter gets to listen to the track when he/she grows up.
If West proceeds with the plan, he won't be the first rapper to do so though. Fellow hip-hop superstar Jay-Z has already done it almost a year ago when he recorded "Glory" for Blue Ivy, his daughter with R'n'B-pop diva Beyonce Knowles. Insiders claim it was actually the 11-month-old Blue Ivy who inspired West and Kardashian to finally have a baby after eight months of dating.
As early as now, the unborn "Kimye" baby is earning international attention, as one overseas tabloid reportedly offered the couple $3 million for the first baby photos. The soon-to-be parents said they're not entertaining offers at this time but might consider it in the future. Although Kardashian, who thinks being pregnant is "great and cute", will show her baby bump on her hit TV reality series with her big family, the couple has decided to exclude their child from "Keeping Up with the Kardashians".
However, some tabloids report that Kardashian is already in talks with some TV execs about documenting everything, from her pregnancy running up to the birth, from "scans, hospital visits, everything. She could make $16 million from the pregnancy alone," said the undisclosed source. Kardashian stands to make a lot of money from product endorsements as well as from mother-to-be to baby products, and she has been bombarded with tons of potential deals to endorse parental products.
West first revealed he and Kardashian are expecting their first child together during his recent concert at Revel Resort in Atlantic City. Kardashian is believed to be three months into her pregnancy.
