Houston Rapper Announces Wife’s Pregnancy with Viral Freestyle

NIGERIAN-AMERICAN HOUSTON rapper Tobe Nwigwe, famous for making it big on the rap scene as an independent artist free from the constraints of a record label (and for counting Michelle Obama as one of his biggest fans), released a revealing freestyle just a few days ago announcing that his wife Fat (born Ivory Rogers) is expecting the couple's third child.


In the candid video, the Alief-reared rapper can be seen rapping on his couch — a familiar setting to fans of his early releases — while surrounded by his two children, his wife Fat, and his best friend and producer "Nell" LaNell Grant, who all smile along as he belts out his freestyle.

"We gonna do something special for the city of Houston… so if you're not from Houston, just act like you are. You feel me?" raps the former CityBook cover star in the opening of the video. But it's the end of the two-minute freestyle that packs the most punch.

"Fat be the queen… and low-key she pregnant as hell… we ain't just said a thing…," Nwigwe raps at the very end of the video, before Fat stands up revealing her pregnant belly. "Kid number three."

The rap, titled "A REVEALING FREESTYLE," is now available on streaming platforms like Spotify, so give it a listen if you're in need of something that'll make you feel a little better about the world today.
