Coi Leray included two pictures of Benzino in her IG story, one playing the song “Family > Money” by Babyface Ray, and the other with the caption, “Happy Fathers Day Raydog! I love you.” Beyond just being Leray’s dad, Benzino is a television personality, producer, and rapper. He was part of the legendary production team Hangmen 3.
Coi Leray is well on the way to follow in her dad’s footsteps, finding her own success in the music industry. In April, Leray dropped the 25-song Trendsetter, which was a star-studded affair. The album included features from the likes of Nicki Minaj, BLEU, Fivio Foreign, Young M.A., G Herbo, H.E.R., Nav, Polo G, and more. She then took the project on tour, joined by B-Lovee, with whom she may or may not have had a relationship.
Coi Leray doesn’t only have good things to say about her father. She once said that her mom has made her the “alpha female” she is today. Check out Leray’s appreciation posts for her dad below.
