Game: Best Rap Dad
Now, rappers are usually known for their outstanding parenting skills. I mean, lets go back in time - shall we? First, there's Uncle Luke. Now usually its the baby mommas who sound off on their dead beat baby daddies. In this case, it was Luke's OWN DAUGHTER. In a video, his daughter, Lacresha, put him on super blast. "He is not a good father," Lacresha said. "He's an asshole." Rappers: 0 World: 1.
Okay, give Luke a break. Maybe she's just a spoiled ass girl who didn't get her way and spazzed the fuck out. Fine... but what about Joe Budden who was issued a warrant by New Jersey police for failing to pay child support? Hmm.. i gotta admit 13 racks is alot of money, but he's a rapper - he got that. Rappers: 0 World: 2. Ol' Dirty Bastard [R.I.P. - No Disrespect] fathered 13 KNOWN kids. Ouh baby he liked it raw, but couldn't managed to support the fruits of his labor. SMH. And although not a rapper Dame Dash was accused in court of having his son living in fucked up conditions (no electricty or water) by his ex-wife. T.I. has a handful of kids but chose to spend his time away - TWICE. Black Men: 0 The World: 5
Now, don't get me wrong. In some of these cases, the woman was probably just an evil conniving BITCH who was set out for the money from the very start. However, the child didn't ask to be here so you have to MAN UP and take care of your responsibilities. The world already sees black men as irresponsible anyway. Can't someone come and break the chain and be a spokesman for parental responsibility?
The Compton emcee may not be all that you want your son to grow up and be, but from the outside looking in, Game proves to be a caring and responsible father to ALL THREE of his kids. Who knows what goes on behind closed doors, but Game has owned up to his seeds and has shown that fatherhood is a beautiful thing. From the "Like Father, Like Son" track on The Documentary, the numerous album covers with his kids, to his kids' presence at shows and video shoots, Game is definitely NOT running from his duties as a man.
i'm not saying that Game is the only rapper who takes care of his kids. I am saying that he is the rapper who makes it most visibly known that he has an undying love for his kids.
Will the REAL MEN get up?
