"I'm locking eyes with the prettiest girl I ever seen in my almost-a-decade of life on earth. And I promise I can feel how I really shouldn't even say locked eyes cause really I was just staring at her," the "No Problem" singer confessed.

The rapper said his dad begged him to get out in the middle of the room with the girls and "show em the tootsie roll." But he explained, "Young me was shy. This wasn't the time or place,” he added. "Not just because it wasn't my party, not because it was their moment to dance, not even cause I was nervous about dancing in front of folks. It's cause I knew I was gonna marry that girl. And I ain't wanna jump the gun," he wrote.

"So I shook my head with anxiety, moved to the back of the crowd and never even introduced myself," he told followers.

"16 years later it's happening. This wknd is the time, and the place is my wedding. I'm gonna dance with my wife because this is my destiny," he finished.
