The 25-year-old rapper is going on a ‘sabbatical’ to study the Bible’ so he can ‘learn the Word of God’ and be a more ‘educated’ uncle to his newborn nephew.

He made this know via his Instagram page as he shared an adorable video of himself carrying his newborn nephew. He wrote;

‘I’m on a plane headed out the country on my first sabbatical. I’m going away to learn the Word of God which I am admittedly very unfamiliar with.

‘I’ve been brought up by my family to know Christ but I haven’t taken it upon myself to really just take a couple days and read my bible… we all quote scripture and tell each other what God likes and doesn’t like but how much time do we spend as followers of Jesus to really just read and KNOW his Word.

‘I’m definitely guilty of not devoting time to it. So I’m off to read and learn because the next generation of Bennett is here and I need to be able to give my nephew Charlie Matthew the knowledge and tools to F**K YALL UP … Lol but seriously he’s the first boy of the next line and he needs his uncle to be educated.’
