Ty Dolla $ign's daughter is growing up too fast, according to him.

In the music video for his collaboration with Kanye West, Jailynn's father raps about her growing up too fast.

The “Talking/Once Again" visual features North rapping, but also includes imagery of Ty and Jailynn. In a verse, he says, "How much to stop the car from speeding? They might try to slow down / How much to stop my daughter from growing? I just can't take it now."

"You and your dad killed it — father and daughter," one commenter applauded when Jailynn posted the video to her Instagram.

In addition to making music videos, it appears that Jailynn is studying business administration and economics after having graduated from high school.

There hasn't been any word on whether Jailynn will work with her star dad in future videos or projects, but the two are very close. Ty talked about how he saw himself as a dad, and shared a tidbit about Jailynn's mom in a rare 2014 interview.

"I’m definitely the super-cool dad," he told Ebony in the piece. "Her mom is a teacher and we do a great job. The only thing I could be better at is to be around more. Other than that, I’m a great dad. I come to the soccer games and teach her stuff, go over her homework with her every night; we stay on the phone. I try to be as good as a dad as I can be. She’s definitely happy."
