New York rapper and Dip Set ambassador Juelz Santana is a proud father of two young boys and one on the way. A self-proclaimed “hands on father,” Juelz knows a thing or two about being there for his family and taking care of his little ones – that’s why he’s so bothered by the fact that fathers don’t get the recognition they deserve – especially on Father’s Day.
“I guess it’s because of the history of fathers that have been deadbeat dads, especially in the era that I was growing up in,” said Juelz Santana.
Juelz does see the tide changing and believes that “entertainment dads” have been setting the blueprint for being hands on with their children.
“We going hard right now, especially fathers who are in entertainment, the Dads are there, man; we’re fully active in our kids’ lives.”
