Rappers have many different muses that inspire their song lyrics, and these have notably included their kids. Some of our favorite hip hop songs include references to children, making us feel in many ways like we know them -and even care about them. Eminem had lines about his daughter Haile Mathers, and she even had a guest verse on “My Dad’s Gone Crazy.” In our minds she’ll always be about 6 years old, which is why our jaw dropped last October when we learned she was crowned Homecoming Queen. OMG! Daddy’s little girl is not so little anymore. Did we mention that she was a cutie?

More recently, we heard that the Notorious B.I.G.’s son Christopher Wallace, Jr. has just graduated high school. Whaaaaaat? How did we get so out of touch with these famous rap off-spring? They were babies when we first heard about them, but where are they now? And are they still cute!?! What about the adorable Trey from Papa Will Smith’s heartwarming “Just The Two Of Us” vid? Or Lauryn Hills first-born, Zion, sung about on her solo smash The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill?

From attending college to being of legal drinking age (for some of them), and even taking on the fashion world, here is our list of hip hop babies that are all grown up and probably doing things we dare not say. Check them out in the gallery above! You have our permission to feel old…
