Rappers plea: Fathers take care of your kids

Everyone including me is quick to bash Hip Hop for all of the negativity it puts out there so I think it’s only right we give it love when it puts positive messages out there. Check out this video by Scram Carolina titled Deadbeat Daddys in which he implores fathers to spend time with their children. His song can do something many of us can’t and that’s reach these young men in a langauge they understand.

Any man than can ejaculate can be a father but not just any man can be a daddy.
