The 26-year-old hip hop artist couldn’t contain his excitement as he told the cheering audience,

"I got a son about to be born any day now, so shout-out to him. Pray for me."

Congrats to Wayne, the mother, and big sister, though. I’ve been a fan for awhile now and this past year, he’s just been all over the place.
