Since the news dropped that A$AP Rocky welcomed his baby boy with girlfriend Rihanna on May 19, neither of the stars have spoken out publicly about the news. But if you follow the ASAP Mob rapper on Instagram, you might’ve noticed his latest post, the first one he’s published since becoming a dad. 

Sorry to burst any bubbles but the IG post isn’t related to the baby or Rihanna or rapping, for that matter. The Grammy-nominated rapper shared a few images of Chilled Magazine‘s latest edition, which features Rocky on the cover, along with his recently launched Mercer + Prince whisky brand. 

Rocky launched the new spirit brand in March, which, according to an excerpt from the cover story shared by the rapper, was a “new goal” and part of one of his “longtime personal interests.”

Fans left mixed reviews on the post. Some congratulated Rocky on his cover with comments like, “This cover is TUFF.” Others pointed to the new baby, seemingly upset at his lack of response to the news. “Your baby came asap,” one user wrote, while another said, “are we gonna talk about the baby.”

Many commented on Rocky’s rumored new album, All $miles, and inquired about the project’s release date. 

It may not have been the statement you were looking for but maybe soon we’ll hear Rih and Rock’s thoughts, from them directly, on parenting life so far.
