Origins! Jay-Z Reveals Why He Named Twins Sir & Rumi!

We will forever be stuck on Beyonce, and right now the only thing rivaling our affection for her the love we have her twins, Sir and Rumi Carter. Bey and her “Beybies” are still the talk of the town nearly two months after their birth. Still, we were as surprised like anyone when we learned their names. Especially since Sir and Rumi are rather unconventional. Then again, so is their big sister’s,  Blue Ivy, but the explanation behind her name only makes us love it more.

Thankfully, their daddy, Jay-Z, has spilled the beans and we now know the origins of the twins’ names.

More revelations are coming to light as part 2 of #JayZ’s interview with #RapRadar was realeased today! This time the rapper reveals why he and wifey #Beyoncé names the twins #Rumi and #Sir as well as how #BlueIvy recorded her epic freestyle.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.”

The Carters will be creating more of these special moments as they embark on Jay’s 4:44 to wear this October. He tells Rap Radar that he decided to schedule the tour later in the year so that he could spend as much time as possible with the new 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 explained. “They’ll be with me [on tour] anyway but I’m just saying, like, [I needed] a space where I’m not doing anything. 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.”

Jay-Z seems to really be beaming over his kids and so are we. We wonder if he and Beyonce plan on adding anymore additions in the future?
