Rumor has it that rapper Lil Wayne is expecting his, wait for it, fifth child. Yup, fifth, as in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.
There have been multiple reports that Lil Wayne’s current girlfriend is pregnant and I’m sorry, but it just makes me sick. Actually, I’m not sorry. He should be sorry. There is no excuse for making babies–with 5 different women, mind you–that you don’t take care of.
Now don’t tell me it’s fine because he pays child support. It’s not okay just because he’s rich. Taking care of your kid doesn’t mean sending a check every month. Children need a father in their life and not just a guy who comes around every so often.
For this reason, you will never hear me bump a Lil Wayne record and if he is still around when my daughter is older, he’s definitely on the banned-in-this-house list. Sure, he may be talented, but he’s sucking as a person if you ask me. And of course, no one is perfect, but after baby #2 I think we all know how kids are made. Precautions can be set in place to ensure you don’t end up with five children by five different women.
I also don’t buy the excuse that just because he didn’t grow up with his father, it’s part of a vicious cycle. If anything, not having his father in his life should make him want to be an even better father to his children.
But maybe I’m just biased because I kind of hate his music, too. And I think people have to do better. Especially people who other kids–and young boys!–look up to. What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comments.
