Benjamin is also the father of Badu’s 25-year-old son, Seven Sirius Benjamin.
On Aug. 4, the 50-year-old referenced the 50th anniversary of hip-hop while mentioning lyrics from André’s verse on the Outkast song “Rosa Parks.”

Badu and Benjamin dated for one year back in the 1990s and had their son before parting ways. According to Badu, the former couple are close friends, and they often share photos of themselves with their son on social media.
“He’s one of my best friends on the planet. I care for him so very much, about his livelihood, his art, his feelings,” she said back in 2020. “We laugh all the time, talk about things. It’s brother and sister, it’s grandmother and grandson, it’s father and daughter. It’s so many different things, depending on what the situation calls for.”
Badu also has a 19-year-old daughter Puma with rapper The D.O.C. and a 14-year-old daughter, Mars, with rapper Jay Electronica. The practicing doula recently wrapped her 25-city Unfollow Me tour with Mos Def, ending it in Dallas on July 23.
Romantically, Badu has also been involved with rapper Common, whom she dated for two years. He previously claimed that he dimmed his “greatness” to be in a relationship with the neo-soul singer. A year later, he explained that he struggled after the breakup because she was his “first love.”
