Rapper Shawty Lo has been in the news recently, more for his extraordinary family condition than for the music that made him a big name in the music game.
Shawty Lo has declined to publicly discuss the upcoming Oxygen show, including a request from theGrio, but in an interview with MTV News’ Rob Markman, Lo talked about his role as a father of 11 children by ten different women.
“You can hate all you want to, I didn’t ask for it,” Lo said. “It just happened. Now that it happened, I’m supposed to turn my back against it? If I wasn’t taking care of my kids then you would really dog me out, but I’m taking care of my kids, providing for my family. I don’t know what else to say.”
Shawty Lo makes it clear that he makes it a priority to raise his own children and support his family because when he was growing up he didn’t have any family there for him. His mother was hooked on drugs and his father was nowhere to be found.
“I came to be one of the largest drug dealers to come from Atlanta, Bankhead area, and I started havin’ kids. When the money came, a lot of women came,” Shawty Lo said. “Once you feel like a girl was your girlfriend or whatever, the rubber probably came off. They wouldn’t have an abortion. They used to take the money and run with it, and they’d have a baby by the most popular guy in the street, and that’s how I had all them kids.”
