8. Kanye’s daughter North
I’m convinced that Erykah Badu has mystical magical powers. She has an undeniable aura that sucks you in like a magnet. If you ask any of her three children’s fathers, they all may be inclined to say the same. Here she is with The D.O.C. – well known for his work with super group N.W.A., with their beautiful daughter Puma. The D.O.C is a hip hop staple as one of the founding members and writers of N.W.A. material, having worked on the legendary Dr. Dre “The Chronic” album – and putting out 2 solo albums, any real rap head knows his work.
After a bad car accident that crushed his vocal cords, it took nearly 7 years before he would record again, and after rehabilitation and surgery, he’s regained full use of his voice. He’s currently working on an album yo be released and possibly a biopic.
Outside of that, he speaks of Erykah being one of his best friends. In a recent interview with VLAD TV titled “How Three Legendary MC’s co-parent with Erykah Badu” He’s actively involved in his daughter’s life…even though he lives in L.A. and Erykah resides in Georgia.
D.O.C. says they all get along well, and he’s good friends with both Jay and Dre. I’m sure Ms. Badu has some voodoo in her brew some way some how with all this harmony. I’m kidding, but it seriously makes one go hmmmmmmmm….lol.
I think it’s awesome the way her blended family works, and I nothing but love and respect for her as a mother, and as a artist. She’s the definition of DOPE.
Anywho, check out this video below of The D.O.C. from VLAD TV to get the scoop from him directly….
I know breast feeding will be in my future very soon. Kandi looks beautiful in this photo, and I’m sure she and Todd have plenty to share about this experience since its been 14 years since she had her daughter Riley. Todd also has a daughter who’s an adult “Kayla” from a previous relationship, and now baby Ace together.
An Oklahoma missionary who volunteered at a children’s home in Kenya was sentenced to 40 years in prison Monday for sexually assaulting three girls and a boy while working at the facility, according to court documents.
Matthew Lane Durham, 21, was sentenced to four decades in prison by Judge David L. Russell on four counts of “engaging in illicit sexual conduct in foreign places,” according to court documents.
“In a span of just 33 days,” prosecutors wrote to the court, Durham “raped three girls — ages 5, 9 and 15 — at least eight times. During that same time period, he sexually molested a 12-year-old boy twice.”
The prosecutors said that Durham “not only forcefully sexually abused these children,” but “he psychologically damaged them by taking advantage of their trust he received from the children.”
A jury found Durham guilty on seven counts of the charge in June, court records show. Russell acquitted Durham on three of the counts in January, writing that the prosecutors “failed to establish that he engaged in a ‘sexual act’ ” with the children identified in those charges.
Durham’s attorney, Stephen Jones, told CNN on Monday that he plans to appeal the court’s decision.
Fallout in Kenya
The region of the eastern African nation that Durham volunteered in has also been shaken, prosecutors say.
In a sentencing memorandum to the court in February, they wrote that Durham’s actions “have had a chilling effect on the lives of dozens of foreign volunteers in Kenya and elsewhere who must now live under the cloud of suspicion … there is a real perception among Upendo’s local Kenyan community that more pedophiles lurk among the volunteers, especially the male volunteers.”
In 2014, Durham arrived at Upendo Children’s Centre to volunteer with neglected children, according to the criminal complaint. Durham had previously volunteered at the school three times before.
The organization, funded by an American citizen, recruits volunteers from the Oklahoma church community and provides food, housing and clothes to neglected children in Nairobi, according to the complaint.
Upon arriving in 2014, Durham requested to stay at an “overflow bunk” in the school rather than an off-site facilities with sponsor families to be in a “better position to assist the children,” the complaint says.
A school caretaker began to notice odd behavior between Durham and the children, including “lingering embraces” and “lying beside some of the children on their beds” at night, the complaint says.
Durham was confronted by leaders at the school who then held his passport, the complaint says. They returned the passport to him days later, and he flew back to Oklahoma.
At the time of his arrest, Durham’s attorney told CNN that Durham was coerced into a confession to get his passport back.
This has me so infuriated to no end. This man went over to Africa just to rape and abuse helpless children. He should be put away for life!!! Children’s lives are more serious and precious than any drug offender behinds bars for life. This is what is wrong with our justice system. He never should see the light of day again in his lifetime.

We always see pictures of North out and about with the family, yet no stroller or signs of baby Saint. Well, he’s finally made his public debut for all of us curious folks. So worth the wait 😍
