Wiz Khalifa has hit back at critics who slammed him for letting his son ride the bus to school, saying he wants the tot to have normal childhood "experiences".

The 30-year-old rapper posted on social media last week to gush over his five-year-old son Sebastian - whom he has with ex Amber Rose - as he headed to his first day of school, and said the tot "rode the bus and everything".

Shortly after his post, Wiz was blasted by critics who claimed that given his and Amber's shared wealth, they should be sending their son to school in a car rather than on public transport.

But now, Wiz has hit back, claiming he won't restrict his child from having normal childhood "experiences" just because he happens to have money.

The 'See You Again' rapper said in a video posted on social media: "Being rich don't got nothing to do with a child's experiences. He said he wanted to ride the bus with his friends, so let kids do what they want to do. Chill."

Despite wanting him to experience life as a normal child, the 'Black and Yellow' hitmaker recently opened up about his $16,000-per-month rental home, which he said has been decked out to make sure his tot has plenty of room to "run around and have fun".

He said: "There was a lot of room for my son. I wanted to make sure he could run around and have a good time.

"When you walk in, you kind of just get the vibe of my son. He's got his play area, he's got his learning area, he's got his imagination station. He gets to do him."

Meanwhile, Sebastian got the taste of more star treatment earlier this year when he was given the chance to meet Taylor Swift.

Wiz captured the moment their little boy met the pop megastar on video, in which he said: "[Sebastian's] so excited right now. Taylor's over there and he's so happy."

The youngster could be seen handing Taylor a bunch of flowers before giving her hug and high-fiving her.
