#HappyFathersDay: Precious Father Moments From Our Favorites in Hip-Hop & Entertainment

Father’s day is here and we couldn’t be more excited to share our appreciation for all of the wonderful men out there who love and care for their children. Fathers day is very important because year-round mothers are usually the ones getting all of the appreciation and attention. Sometimes we forget how important fathers and father figures are to society and today we want to shed light on some of our favorite fathers.

Over the years we have been able to witness special father moments through social media from fathers in entertainment and hip-hop. Seeing our favorite entertainers be vulnerable with their children always fills our heart with joy and love. It is important that we stray away from the narrative that fathers are missing from the picture in the African American community. There are tons of fathers who are going above and beyond for their little ones and here are some of our favorites!

Will Smith

Will Smith shared this beautiful video of him taking Willow to her first ballet class. Willow was very nervous and didn’t want to go because of fear but Will pushed her into her potential. Willow learned that if you’re ever afraid to do something you should “just do it”. All good things are on the opposite side of fear.

 

Schoolboy Q

Schoolboy Q and his daughter Joy were father-daughter goals with this epic rap battle. Hip-hop has always been a male-dominated field and it is always refreshing to see young women spitting bars alongside the boys.

Jamie Foxx

Jamie Foxx and his daughter are the perfect co-hosting duo on Fox’s newest hit game show Beat Shazam. Corinne Foxx has obviously inherited her father’s star power and is killing it as a co-host on season two. A family that gets the back together, stays together. This is epic and beautiful.

 

Chance The Rapper

Chance The Rapper and his baby girl Kensli are always living their best life. Can you imagine your dad shouting you out on Sesame Street?

 

Dave East

Dave East and his daughter Kairi Chanel Brewster make our heart melt over time they come across our social media feed. Check out this image of East putting Kairi’s hair into a cute ponytail. How adorable is this?

You Make Life So Dope!!! 😍😍😍😍😍

DJ Khaled

Dj Khaled wins the best father of the decade award when it comes to his parenting skills with Ashad Khaled. Ashad produced his first album at the tender age of 4 months old thanks to his amazing father. We love seeing the Khaled’s on our feed. They are always spreading love and light.

Iman Shumpert 

Iman Shumpert always introduces himself as the husband to Teyana Taylor and father to Junie. His outward love and appreciation for his family go unmatched. We loved seeing him teach Junie how to swim on their reality show Teyana & Iman on VH1.

YG

YG and his daughter went on the perfect father-daughter date to Kitson Kids for a shopping spree. YG is absolutely in love with his baby girl. He told Billboard that he is such an amazing father because of his own mother and father who sacrificed everything for him.

Spent some BANK on my daughter 😍😍😍😍😍 DAD

2 Chainz

2 Chainz took his kids to his restaurant in Atlanta for a family day. This is #BlackExcellence at its finest. 2 Chainz lost his own father at a very young age. The death of his father is what fuels him to be a great dad to his little ones. He told Fuse that music has helped him keep his mind off of his father, music is his personal therapy.

Live Civil At @AgendaShow and Some Of Our Faves + Featuring @CivilClothing & @OutdoorTech

By Posted on 0 2 m read

This past week Live Civil had the privilege of attending this summers Agenda NYC urban apparel and accessories trade show. We also attended this past winter and you can check out the info here.

This summer the exhibitors and exhibitions were just as vibrant as before, featuring brands like Beats By DrCrooks and Castles, and New Era, Agenda is a great place to catch up with the industry giants, however, the ones that really shine are the start-ups and underground heroes. One of which is a relatively new, activity focused electronics brand Outdoor Tech.

Outdoor Tech is making some innovative steps in their own lane by offering durable, high-quality, wireless audio electronics, apparel and electronics accessories at an affordable price point. Take for instance the Outdoor Tech Turtle Shell. While this wireless speaker IS cute enough to sit atop your nightstand or coffee table, it’s strengths are how it handles the elements. With it’s IP65 dust-proof and water-resistant testing, the Turtle Shell is perfect for a day at the beach, or with it’s standard camera threading, you can mount it to your bike (or numerous other places) for some mountain trails, rain riding or dirt biking/mudding and all your tunes play just as fine! Check out all of their products via their website Outdoor Technology and check the pics below!

Today’s Civil Men Style look is daring and bold with a mixture of high fashion. The look combines a color detailed tank from CivilClothing with black leather harem pants. The look is complete with a pair of black sneakers, which are accented with heavy gold zippers and designs. Essentially, it is the details in the tank and sneaker that makes today’s look daring! If you are inspired by the styles of Rico Love and Kanye West, this is the look for you.
