A week following the cancellation of his developing reality show, “All My Babies’ Mamas,” Shawty Lo is still determined to get the controversial series green lit on another network.
During a recent radio appearance on Atlanta’s Hot 107.9, the rapper (born Carlos Walker) shared his thoughts on Oxygen pulling the plug and encouraging fans to sign an online petition in hopes of the show getting back on air.
“I feel like they didn’t give the show a chance to air to see what was going on. And she made her assumptions off of the trailer…My life story wasn’t peaches and cream. Coming up was so, so hard for me…And basically what I’m doing is telling my story, showing how Shawty Lo turned a negative into a positive. The show wasn't about, we finna be fightin'…a lot of fathers don’t take care of one child, don’t even be there with their children. But me, I’m there with my children I’m hands on.”
"They making their assumptions off a 13-minute trailer and this like the biggest news around the world right now and it's unbelievable,” he added. “But I’m working hard for this show to air, because people do want to see it. My kids, they want to see it. They’re disappointed right now...My show is not about no negative; it's a positive. But if they wanna see the show, y’all sign a petition."
