We have a few more 2018 high school graduates! Go inside to celebrate with Remy Ma, her son Jace, Kimora Lee Simmons, her daughter Ming Lee Simmons and more…
One of Hip Hop’s favorite couples was over the moon yesterday celebrating a new graduate in the family.
Remy Ma’s son Jace just graduated high school. And get this, he finished 6 months early. Woot!
"I love you and I’m so proud of you; the whole family is [kiss emojis] You’ll always be my baby though #CollegeBound #ClassOf2018 This is who I do it for @JayJanafi," Remy captioned on Instagram.
Jace’s stepdad Papoose and his step sister Dejanae were also in attendance for the graduation festivities.
“The Proud Family” @chanel.nine @jayjanafi @papoosepapoose Thank you for being YOU, Husband, WE got him to the finish line (well, 1 of them) And I don’t think any sister on the planet screamed louder for their brother than u Dēj#RemyMa GRADUATION GIFTS: @SamDiamonds144 thank you for making his custom chain in literally 24hours – He loves it," the "Melanin Magic rapper said on social media. "@_.bash thank u 4 helping me pick the perfect car; he’s not too mad that I didn’t get the hellcat."
Not only did he cop his diploma, he was also gifted a custom iced out necklace with his name and a Dodge Charger!
He’ll be riding in style when he starts college….if his school allows freshmen to have a car.

Another YBF celebuspawn graduating….
Kimora Lee Simmons, who just received her business degree from the University of Hartford’s Barney School of Business, was in mama bear mode for her eldest daughter Ming Lee Simmons’ graduation. She’s 18 and now a high school grad!
Her mom, little sister Aoki Lee Simmons, her brothers Kenzo Lee Hounsou & Wolfe Lee Leissner, dad Russell Simmons and Kenzo’s dad Djimon Hounsou were there to celebrate her big accomplishment. We noticed we didn’t see Kimora’s current husband Tim Leissner in attendance.
When Ming Lee walked across the stage to accept her diploma, her mother was THAT mother:
My big baby @mingleesimmons graduated high school today! 18 years of lovin on this thang! So super proud of you! #WeMadeIt! #classof2018 @aokileesimmons @unclerush @djimon_hounsou #kenzolee #wolfelee #hubbyTL #LB #VC #ThaLouIsInTheHouse!
This makes us feel SO old.
After the ceremony…
The gang made their way to Il Pastaio restaurant in Beverly Hills to continue the graduation festivities.
Congrats Ming Lee!
In other Class of 2018 news…
