How celeb couple came up with twin names, Rumi, Sir Carter
The "Smile" rapper shared this during the second part of an interview which was released on Friday, August 25.
Well, you are in luck as Jay Z has been solving a lot of mysteries, thanks to a podcast interview on Rap Radar with hosts Elliot Wilson and Brian "B.Dot" Miller.
The "Smile" rapper shared this during the second part of the interview which was released on Friday, August 25.
"Rumi is our favourite poet, so it was for our daughter."
Beyonce threw some light on the meaning of the name, Rumi.Apparently, Rumi was an iconic 13th-century Persian poet and philosopher who dedicated his life to art, spirituality and above all love.
Rumi, which is Persian shorthand for West or Rome, was born in 1207 in present-day Afghanistan, the son of a jurist and a mystic. The Islamic scholar wrote poems that collapsed boundaries between truth and poetry, mind and body, divine and human love.
"And then Sir was, like, man, come out the gate. He carries himself like that. He just came out, like, Sir," Jay Z said.
Us Weekly also reports that Jay-Z scheduled his upcoming tour for after the birth of the twins.
"I booked the tour for October so I could have at least four months ... to just really bond and see their fingers and s--t like that," he said.
"They'll be with me [on tour] anyway, but I'm just saying, like, [I needed] a space where I'm not doing nothing, I'm just focused on them. I'm not thinking about a show at night or anything like that. That's why the tour is so far away from the release of the album."
