First Atlanta rapper, Shawty Lo, real name Carlos Walker, was told that his controversial ‘Oxygen’ show, ‘All My Babies Mamas,’ was being cancelled; then he begged fans to sign a petition on Change.org asking the network to reconsider airing the show and now, according to various reports, the rapper has been arrested for failure to pay child support, reports XXLMag.com.

Shawty-Lo took it to the Tweets to brag about how quickly he was released from jail:
The below photo of him was taken at an Atlanta mall by DJ Smallz, who claims not to know why the rapper was handcuffed. Reports continue to swirl that failure to pay child support is the charge, but that information has not been officially released.
The petition the rapper urged fans to sign reads in part as follows:
It’s a sad day in America, when people attempt to reject a father that steps up to the plate, a father who is actively supporting his children & their mothers , not just monetarily but emotionally as well.
Shawty Lo, is in fact a father figure that most young black men today coming from a similar past lifestyle and environment, should mimic in his parental role. With 11 children, which are all clothed, fed, housed and loved in everyway that a parent should love, protect and provide for their child. As well as being a supportive and active partner in the co-parenting of his children with their mothers.
Everyone has a past, especially in hip-hop, however how many take the reins and put their life in motion for change?
Rap music came from the streets of urban culture, songs of struggle and strength. Before the masses came in with their auto tunes and pop divas, hip-hop was the voice of urban America, allowing young men and women in the concrete jungle a poetic voice, that allowed others into their world. Artists such as Grandmaster Flash, Run DMC and Public Enemy paved the way for today’s chart toppers. Rhymes about what their daily life endured, with everything from teen pregnancy, racism to political movements.
A man is supposed to take care of his children, and the mother (s), weather it be singular or plural.
So here’s the question, would you rather see 11 children struggle with mothers on welfare? Or watch a man support his children? Does it come down to the race card?

Most people opposed to the show questioned the rapper’s ability to take care of 11 children, but he continued to claim that he not only supports them financially, but emotionally, as well.
Hopefully, it’s not a child support issue; but whatever it is most certainly isn’t a good example for his children.
