Jay-Z and Beyonce might surprise you with their reasons for choosing the twins names.
As for the origins of the twins names, Jay tells Rap Radar, “Rumi is our favorite poet, so it was for our daughter.” He continued, “Sir was like, man, come out the gate. He carries himself like that. He just came out, like, Sir.”
Jay also spoke about how Rumi and Sir’s big sister Blue Ivy blew him away with a 5-minute freestyle that’s featured on his album. “She got the headphones and she climbed on the little stool, and then she just started rapping,”‘he said. “I was like, ‘Oh, s–t.’ I have [her full freestyle] on my phone. Five minutes! Five minutes of her doing that.”
