JAY-Z TELLS EVERYONE THE TRUE MEANING OF HIS TWINS NAMES
Jay-z explained the meanings behind the names of his and Beyoncé’s twins Rumi and Sir, who were born in June. While we’ve heard rumors from grandma Tina Knowles Lawson, Beyoncé’s mother, it’s best to get it from the horse’s mouth. So why call your kids Rumi and Sir?
Well, as Jay explained on rap radar podcast on Friday, we pretty much got it right that Rumi is named after the 13th Century poet Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī, but the ‘Sir’ part needed a little explaining.
“Sir was like, man, come out of the gate,” said Jay-z. “He carries himself like that. He just came out, like, ‘Sir!'”
