Hip-Hop’s Baby Mama Reference Guide (Pg. 2)
The Artist: Eminem on The Eminem Show’s “Cleanin’ Out My Closet”
The Baby Mama Bars: “I look at Hailie and I couldn’t picture leaving her side/Even if I hated Kim, I’d grit my teeth and I’d try”
The Baby Mama Drama: If you’re a female and your name isn’t Hailie (Em’s daughter if you’ve been asleep for the last ten years), there’s a pretty good chance Eminem hates you. Like, enough to make songs like this about murdering you. On this introspective track, he toned it down to make a point, though: That his love for Hailie outweighs his hate for his ex-wife. How sweet.
The Artist: 50 Cent on Before I Self Destruct’s “So Disrespectful”
The Baby Mama Bars: “They say first comes loves, then comes marriage, then they got Shaniqua in the baby carriage/Then came the cash, then the baby mama drama, I gave the bitch half a mill, she blew it on Prada”
The Baby Mama Drama: Fif’s ex-girl sued him for $50 million in 2009, claiming that when she gave birth to their son Marquise in 1997, he’d agreed to take care of her for life. A judge disagreed. Safe to say, these two won’t be patching things up anytime soon.
