In the November issue of Vibe magazine, Lil’ Wayne explains why he had a baby at only 15 years old. He said,
A year after Rabbit was gone, I was on tour like crazy with Cash Money, and my momma said she was bored, alone, and scared in the house by herself. She was like, â€˜Why donâ€™t you just have a baby with somebody? Just tell the little girlâ€™s mom Iâ€™ma take care of the baby, donâ€™t worry about that.â€™ I was like, â€˜I donâ€™t have nobody I like like that!â€™ She was like, â€˜Just find somebody! You donâ€™t like Toya?â€™ I was like, â€˜Alright, I like her then.â€™ Toya was 14 when she got pregnant, and I was 15 asking 14-year-olds. Toyaâ€™s the only person that agreed outta all the ones I asked. I said that my momma wants a child. And they was like, â€˜Thatâ€™s your mommaâ€™s problem!â€™ So Toya was like, â€˜Shiiit, when we due, boo?â€™
Whoa. In an interesting turn of events, in a Maury Povich kinda way, Lil’ Wayne’s ex-wife, Antonia Carter, has responded stating,
We had a baby at fourteen…we were in love. It wasn’t about ‘His mom was lonely.’ I never heard that before. His Dad had passed away and his mom was by herself, but it had nothing to do with how my daughter came about. It was just something that happened.
People these days say anything to sell, but you have to realize you can’t say anything to sell music anymore. It don’t just affect me or him. It affects our child, too, because she reads these things and hears these things. That’s the only reason I want to speak out about it.
His mother didn’t ask him to go around asking girls to have a baby. That didn’t happen. My daughter came about because we were in love and young.
I just recently asked him about this interview and made me look like a complete ass and said his mother made me marry him, like we were never in love. Like we never had anything. Like I was your jumpoff. Like I just came along and fell in. That is not what happened. Don’t act like we never had nothing and you don’t have love for me.
Damn, this is to much of a next man’s business. Really Wayne should just talk shit on the mic, not in magazines.
Also check out this deal for 500 free songs from Itunes (only for U.S residents). It’s good to stock up on some hard to find music, not to mention legal downloads that support the artist. Plus, Itunes makes it easier to find the damn song anyway.
