Geto Boys w/ Special Guest Dirty Wormz at Backstage Live in San Antonio, TX Dec 21, 2012 - Where will you be when the world ends?


By Willie D (Read on and see why he's called the Gangster of Love).

A year after my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer I was preparing for yet another long, uncomfortable night at the hospital when I heard the announcement from an overhead speaker: “Would a family member of Marvelous Basey please come to the Intensive Care Unit?”

My mother, who had fought courageously, had lost her battle.

Although we didn’t get along most of the time, I still loved her. When she died, the pain was deep and the burden was heavy.  I couldn’t fathom hating or disowning the woman who brought me into the world, regardless of our problems. 

Now I’ve made a few, let’s just say, “unflattering” songs about women.  But those songs were for those types of women, just like my flattering songs were for those types of women.  Nonetheless, there are “women haters.”  Those who don’t really know me will sometimes try to associate me with the “I Hate Them Bitches Fraternity.”  When I realize that's where they’re coming from, I promptly kick their asses to the curb with reinforced steel-toed boots. 

I love the female gender.  I love their hair, the smell of their perfume, the way they smooth lotion into their skin after a bath, their laughter, the way they sway their hips, their optimism, their vulnerabilities, their fortitude. I could go on and on.

One of my favorite songs is “More Than A Woman” by the Bee Gees.  The song illustrates the range of emotions a man experiences when he’s truly found “The One.”  Here are a few of the lyrics…

And you thought Octomom had her hands full—a Tennessee man who has fathered 30 children is asking the courts for a break on child support.

Desmond Hatchett, 33, of Knoxville has children with 11 different women.  The state already takes half his paycheck and divides it up, which doesn't amount to much when Hatchett is making only minimum wage. Some of the moms receive as little as $1.49 a month. The oldest child is 14 years old.

Hatchett explains how he reached such a critical mass: He had four kids in the same year. Twice.  Back in 2009 when Hatchett was in court to answer charges that many of the mothers were not receiving child support, he had 21 children. At the time, he said he was not going to father any more kids, but he ended up having nine more in the past three years.

The state cannot order Hatchett to stop making babies. He hasn't broken any laws, according to the report.

We all think our mother is the best. But who’s the most powerful mom in the world—managing billions of dollars, entire populations and the little ones?  With Mother’s Day upon us, ForbesWoman analyzed the annual list of the world’s 100 most powerful women—based on money controlled, decision-making power and multiple measures of influence—and teased out the moms who are at the top of their game. From spheres of government, business, entertainment and philanthropy, these 20 moms rule the roost–and the world.

A Chicago jury on Friday convicted Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson's former brother-in-law of murdering her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew in what prosecutors' described as an act of vengeance by a jilted husband.  Hudson, who expressed her undisguised disdain for William Balfour when she took the witness stand and who endured weeks of excruciating testimony about the October 2008 killings, was visibly overcome with emotion as the verdict was read. Hudson's eyes filled with tears and she shook her head and bit her lip. Afterward, she looked over at her sister, Julia Hudson, and smiled.
