That’s Not Yo Baby Daddy — Or Anybody Else’s! Men Who Have Managed To Stay Baby Free In The Rap Game
A few things are just a given in the rap game: money, cars, chains, groupies, baby mamas, and, of course, a kid or two,or three, or four— except for these rappers it’s not. Breaking the overly fertile, be fruitful and multiply like Abraham and ‘dem stereotype that characterizes most rappers these days, these rhyme spitters have managed to not let the groupie love go to their head — or to at least remember to wrap it up every time they decide to get it in with the chick who makes her way from the concert to the hotel lobby to the hotel room.
We can’t help but appreciate these guys who know sprinkling their seed, and their hard-earned money in the form of child support payments, all across the globe is not a good look. Here are nine rappers who are most definitely not the father!

Some of the biggest hit songs contain lyrics we wouldn’t repeat to our mothers. Many of our favorite joints can be raunchy and even misogynistic, but sometimes a good beat is, well, a good beat. Take a look at this list of nasty songs that killed it on the charts
Missy Elliot “Work it”
Misdemeanor should have been fined for this dirty anthem. In 2002, Missy Elliot hit number two in the country with the lead single from her fourth album “Under Construction.” The video for the song also was a success: it gave Missy the 2003 MTV Music Award for Best Video.
Not on the bed, lay me on your sofa
Phone before you come, I need to shave my chocha
You do or you don’t or you will or won’t you

For people like myself who really love music debates, the “conscious rapper” topic is one that tends to get people all riled up. More often than not, someone’s favorite rapper will get talked about in a negative light and come under fire for their actions not always living up to their words. I’ve learned to not have any real beliefs in the idea of the “conscious” rapper because when you do, you’re also going to get that human side that you only thought belongs to the “gangsta” rapper. I don’t believe many of the complaints about the “high and mighty conscious rappers” are warranted. I don’t think it’s right to expect them to ALWAYS talk about the plight of black people or to be positive every second of the day. Then again, in life you’re often forced to take sides. Anyway, enough rambling – just take a look at a few of the conscious rappers and feel free to let me know what you think (I’m also on Twitter…DrennaB).
