Give Yung Berg his stimulus back
It just so happens that Yung Berg’s baby’s mother reads black America’s finest news source,
chain emails Media Take Out.
Last year, when that garbage “Hey Sexy Lady” was popping, she wrote to the site, talking about how she had to break up with him because he gave her chlamydia while she was pregnant, and now he’s thousands of dollars behind on child support.
She also pulls that shit Alana Wyatt, Mos Def’s estranged wife, likes to pull, hinting that Yung Berg put his shoe on her, without going into any real detail or producing a Polaroid of herself with a black eye.
I had something similar happen to me a while back. No, I didn’t give a pregnant woman chlamydia. I had some broad email me talking about how J-Kwon (remember him?) wasn’t taking care of his kids, and that he put his shoe on his baby’s mother down in Atlanta.
Actually, as I recall, it was the baby’s grandmother, i.e. his baby’s mother’s mother (I’m sorry Miss Jackson). But then it turned out that the baby might not have been his anyway. According to another email I received, the baby’s mother was something of a town bicycle here in the Lou.
But I digress.
The other day, as the controversy spread re: Yung Berg claiming he makes use of the paper bag test in his personal life, she wrote them again, to talk more shit about him and to update them on the state of his supposed child support negligence.
Most of it just comes off as the typical salt-throwing of a jealous beeyotch. She claims that, while he says he won’t do any girls darker than he is, he’s really sworn off black women altogether, because he finds them fat, ugly, and ghetto.
Which, I’ll note for the sake of black women’s collective self-esteem, isn’t true. Not all black women are fat, ugly and ghetto. (However, I don’t know that a woman can be fat and not be ugly, in a sense. Ha!)
Obviously, the idea is to turn Yung Berg’s natural fan base, i.e. young black girls who wouldn’t know from good music, even further against him, by making up some shit about him – just like those old rumors about Tommy Hilfiger from back in the day.
You get the idea that she’s really just upset that his trim selection has been upgraded now that he’s famous. Check the following emotional outburst.
When I met him he was living in his dad’s basement on the Southside of Chicago now all of a sudden he moves to California, gets a little money and he doesn’t date black women anymore? Get the f*ck out of here. We are the one’s who were with you when you were broke, the ones who held you down when nobody else would, the one’s who’s shoulder you cried on when things weren’t going your way. Now you degrade us? That is not a good look…
But I did think the final part was interesting. As a matter of follow-up to last year’s email, she reports that he still hasn’t been paying, and that his outstanding child support is now more than twice what it was last year. And since he’s a deadbeat dad, the IRS sent his stimulus check, which was only for $151, to her instead of him.
If that’s true, I’m not sure what to think. On the one hand, obviously it’s hilarious that Yung Berg is probably sitting around somewhere wondering when his stimulus check is finally gonna show up. But on the other hand, I don’t know if I like the idea that the government can send your stimulus check to your baby’s mother.
I’m not saying it’s alright for a man not to take care of his kids, if he has the means. I’m just saying. We don’t know Yung Berg’s financial situation. He might need that $151. And think about all of the brothers out there who could definitely use $151. Lest we forget, the government has programs and special cereals to make sure babies don’t starve. Grown-ass men? Not so much.
