Swizz Beatz melts hearts with pictures together with his father
Swizz Beatz might be one of the most successful entrepreneurs from the Bronx, but he never forgot where he came from. Just in time for Father's Day, the producer shared a touching tribute to his own dad, showing appreciation for everything he has done.
Swizz Beatz made sure to thank his dad for his life this father's day, posting a sweet tribute on his Instagram page. The entrepreneur shared old black and white film shots of his father, adding a thoughtful caption to top it all off.
"Thank you for my life King love and blessings #fathersday"
Swizz, born Kasseem Dean in real life, grew up with his mom after his parents got divorced while he was still young. His father was an immigrant from Eritrea, whom he did not see much when he was younger. Now a music producer, rapper, fashion designer, shoe designer, art collector and painter all at once, he has definitely embodied the hustling spirit of the Bronx, his hometown.
According to Heightline, he has a net worth of over 70 million dollars, which easily makes him one of the most successful African American entrepreneurs in America, garnering accolades and recognitions since he was 16. Aside from his numerous ventures, he has a street named after him in the Bronx, and is the first "Producer in Residence" at New York University.
Now that he is unarguably successful, Swizz Beatz made sure to look back at the man who made it all happen, and who inspired him to keep hustling: his father. Despite not being together for some time back when he was younger, he was able to make up for all the lost time they have missed, spending time with his father in different events and awards night.
The proud father and son both share photos of one another on their social media accounts, with fans happy to see updates from the happy family.
