Shawty Lo Says He Provides For His 10 Babies' Mothers

Shawty Lo explains how his family grew so big.

Shawty Lo surprised the Hip Hop community with the announcement that his upcoming reality show All My Babies' Mamas focused on his life with 10 babies' mothers and 11 children.

During an interview with MTV News, the Southern rapper explained that he would never snub his family and always provides for them. "You can hate all you want to, I didn't ask for it. It just happened. Now that it happened, I'm supposed to turn my back against it?" he said. "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."

The "Dey Know" spitter said that he developed such a big family because he was a big drug dealer in Atlanta, Georgia, and women flocked to him. After he felt that "a girl was your girlfriend or whatever, rubber probably came off," thereby explaining the multiple pregnancies.

Even though it's a lot to juggle, Lo says that it's top priority to take care of those around him. "Even if you ain't got the money, you gotta be a father to your child. You need to be in your child's life, 'cause that means a lot to them," he said. "Comin' up, we didn't have Thanksgiving, we didn't have Christmas, but if I had my father there, if I even had my mother there, I probably wouldn't have been that person I was in the streets."

    Yo a racist evil white devil!!! dont be tellin niggas to stop reproducin and how to be parents or when we can pop the babies. Black parents is best ones better then yankees, jews and chinese or anybody!!!. Yo dont want any black babies!! that is same as sayin No blacks allowed - no more blacks in america. Racist shit.

    THE show will get people talking. If you think that ignored chidren who know they were the product of reckless wild parents will have an easy life, forget it! Bringing children into he world is the most important and serious job, bar none. Too many people make babies without much care for the 18 years of love, nurturing, and education that are involved. If this show exposes truth than its fine. NO MORE UNWANTED UNLOVED IGNORED BABIES THAT ARE BORN TO SUFFER AND FAIL AND BURDEN SOCIETY.
  • bill clinton
    same reason why DMX got 10 kids.. lower child support paying for each bitch. thats what a pimp does
  • No hate
    Nobody hatin on Shawty fell off Lo, he's already been hatin on himself being reckless. He could've been the next Eazy E.
  • LOL
    Typical nigger. The only reason he provides to them is because he has to, if he stops providing for any one of those kids, u know damn well he will have to pay child support, and u know this niggaz career is no longer around, so where he gonna come up with that type of money for child support?
  • da fuq?
    who the fuck is ok with 10 baby mamas, and wants to put that shit on a tv show, i would be embarrassed as fuck to say i have 10! lol but fa real though, i got homies who cant even stand their ONE baby mama, how this nigga puts up with 10 of them is beyond me. lol
    • Lo a real father
      I know plenty of men who won't even take care of only one child. I give Lo plenty of salutes for taking care of all his kids. Ain't no excuses for the rest of you so called "men", who don't pay child support for less than 3 kids.
  • D-NUCKS
    This nigga said he was a big drug dealer and girls flocked to him? Hell most big drug dealers got banging ass dimes around them. I seen a picture off all his baby mommas and the best looking one was AT MOST A 5 on the scale. What kind of weight was he pushing?
    • your reality
      How about you put your real name and hometown up here. If you do, then the truth would be out about the slobs you hook up with...lol

      childbirth and being a single mother wears a woman down quickly. you can tell that they had access to Shawty Lo type men before getting pregnant. Their stock dropped to beneath Shawty Lo type level. On the real though, the only women I see who look just as good after dropping a kid are the ones who were mad in shape and in a happy situation.

    "Even if you ain't got the money" He's got plenty of money on his wrists.

    I don't "hate" on him, but I judge him 'sho 'nuff. Apparently, he didn't learn anything from his parents NOT being there. When he says "provide" for his children....with drug money? Otherwise, he would be a deadbeat. And a fool and his money soon parts...as he even admitted to. Nothing he said, nothing, is honorable with him. 54 convictions, selling drugs to the community, 10 baby mothers....American idiot personified.

      you mad because he provides for his kids, while your father ran away.
    • anonymous
      yeah, I agree. anyone with a brain can see Shawty Lo fucked up by having 11 kids like that. I don't care what people do in their personal lives but I put money down Shawty Lo's kids become public problems. That is why people go so hard on these baby making machines. They skeet in some hoodrat and 12 years later, that hood is trying to rob you for a smartphone. How is a father going to be influential with kids spread out in 10 different households. This is a Boondocks episode.
    • Derrick
      To Anonymous: You're an idiot. Mad? I don't have all those kids...quite possibly YOU'RE one of them. Which is why you're mad. You can relate to being left to die.

      Nope, because he actually stuck around and paid. Some run and some stick around, but still don't pay.

      TYPICAL KYKE
  • ignorant
    my positive side's thinking: at least he does care about his kids and doesn't leave them like some irresponsible bum, even if it's 10 different kids/women. But my negative (realistic) side's thinking now, nigga what the fuck you thinking?? 1,2 maybe 3 i get. But come on, use a fucking condom. Good luck providing them the next 18 YEARS!! who says you'll have money by then?? If the guys happy fuck it, so be it.
    • Big Dan
      Nothing negative about that. There is no way to put a positive spin on this. Anyone with money coming in can send a check but while I don't know his personal circumstances, he can't possible provide enough to take care of all their financial needs and you have to assume the women who'd have kids with Shawty must be bums themselves. So those kids still have to be roughing it. Can he afford to buy ten houses to get them all out the hood? This is wrong on a multiple of levels. When I posted about this show being dead wrong and didn't know there were that many baby mamas. Oprah, this is beyond an embarrassment to the black community. Don't you dare.
    • d-nucks
      true that....IF Terrel Owens is complaining about child support...I dont' see how this nigga going to maintain. But maybe he got a good relationship with all of them and they don't have him on child support. Could be the case
    • Anonymous
      10 homes worth $300,000 each, would get them out the hood. I think Shawty Lo probably can afford $3,000,000.00, so stop hating.

    Only a loser got 11 kids by 10 or 11 different women. That's just irresponsible, dumb, lazy,ignorant,trash and loser material. All these kids got 10 other siblings somewhere in the country. a damn shame.
  • Anonymous
    He didn't ask for it? These 11 kids didn't just magically appear. Maybe the pharmacy was closed alot.
  • racocooper
    'After he felt that "a girl was your girlfriend or whatever, rubber probably came off," thereby explaining the multiple pregnancies.' Shit, you'd think he'd learn to use protection with girlfriends after the first six pregnancies....what an idiot....that just proves how reckless he is.
    • anonymous
      I'm telling you. People need to stop cosigning this fuckery. That's why stds are out of control in urban neighborhoods. Watch Shawty become Patient Zero.
  • LOL
    I'm sure his music career has long dried up so I guess this show is a way of being able to provide for your family. I can salute that but at the same time I think that with a title like "All My Babies' Mommas" you putting yourself out there and also putting your kids out there. The title alone sounds like some Chicken-George sh*t. Sidenote: Nobody creates a reality tv show, nor does anyone watch one, if it doesn't have drama and when dealing with baby momma's its a competition about who's getting provided for the most or least.
  • Fuck Atlanta
    Provide what? AIDS??? Nigga do that damn test cause I'm sure you got that shit.

    instead of having 10 baby mothers wear a condom
  • Coo Bird
    STOP, before you judge Shawty, you have got to give the dude credit for making good on what looks like a nightmare life with all the kids and crazy mamas! Yeah, he's not perfect but then NEITHER ARE YOU! BRAVO! SHAWTY You have an opportunity to show all young men whom have ABANDON their babies, that they need to step up, be men and support the kids! Emotionally AND financially! Show all those young women the reality of being a "baby mama"...it's not all that in fact it is a LIFE SENTENCE!
    • bhikku
      The trailer showed him FORGETTING their names! And he is providing for them emotionally? You are nuts if you applaud this walking minstrel show of a man.
    • anonymous
      the bird part of your name is right. Nobody should applaud him for anything. That man fucked up royally. He gets no passes for fixing a mess he created.
