Baby mama drama is linked to hip-hop way too often. Sadly, in more cases than not, it’s due to the rapper’s relationship with the mother of their child and certain issues that follow. The kids, who were likely conceived during happier times or on a mere night of pleasure, often provide ammo for the mother to come after the rapping father with intentions of airing out their former partner’s dirty laundry for the world to see. However, it’s always good to see when these things can be worked out rather than head down a negative path.
A prime example of turning a negative situation into a positive when it comes to parenting is Fetty Wap. At first mention that he was the father of a child with former Love & Hip Hop Hollywood cast member Masika Kalysha, the Paterson N.J. native was in extreme denial, even calling the reality star out publicly. “Just sit back n watch lol,” Fetty tweeted after Masika revealed she was six months pregnant in December. TMZ then followed up with a story that Fetty told the TV star to get an abortion and said he wasn’t going to help with the baby. “I ain’t comin round helping yu none of that I’m lettin yu no now,” Fetty allegedly wrote in a text message to Masika. He then demanded a paternity test.
Fast forward to February of this year, after a Twitter war went down, and the two mended broken fences. Fetty even apologized to the mother of his third child on Twitter. “@masikakalysha everything may not b okay but I want what’s best for the baby so I apologize,” he wrote. She quickly accepted,“Thank you… Me and baby appreciate the apology.” On March 30, they welcomed a little girl, Khari Barbie Maxwell, and seem to be in each other’s good graces.
However, most co-parenting relationships unfortunately don’t turn out like this. Check out Fetty Wap and 10 other rappers who’ve experienced baby mama drama above.
