“Celebrating RZA 🎉 Boy do you know how to throw a party!” makeup artist Jasmine B. Cook, posted on Instagram while attending with her two children and her husband, producer President Hitkidd. 

“We loved celebrating you. The BIG 2! Slow down! 🥺 Me & Rih just 2 BAD ASS Pisces mamas w/ our 2 boys. I love that for us,” she wrote in the caption of the post, which included a carousel of images and clips from the bash.
