“I made me a video on Facebook, giving a shoutout to deadbeat fathers. I don’t like the fact that these fathers are out here, not trying to take care of their kids. We also got the mothers out here, not taking care of their kids, too. That’s basically what I’m going through, now. I’m fed up with it. I’m only 21 and my son’s 4. He came when I was 17years old, 6 days after my 17th birthday. Me, being a parent and not knowing my real father, I just don’t like parents that don’t do anything for their kids. I don’t even talk to people who don’t take care of their kids.  I’m just looking forward to Lil Pierre just being here and me actually being able to do for him. I don’t have nobody else but him, so why not do what I can to take care of him, so his life can be better than mine. That’s just where my mind is.” - Pierre and Lil Pierre, Portland
