Ying Yang Twin

My Music Career Sucks ...

I Can't Afford My Child Support

The Ying Yang Twins haven’t had a hit song in years ... that's why one of the rappers begged a judge to lower his child support payments, and he just got a huge break ... TMZ has learned.

According to docs filed in Georgia, D-Roc -- aka De'Angelo Holmes -- had been paying his ex-wife $2,500 a month in support for their daughter ... an arrangement that was made when he was pulling down more than 19-grand a month.

But the Twins haven’t had a hit since 2005's "Wait (The Whisper Song) --- so D-Roc went back to court ... hat in hand ... and asked for a reduction, claiming he's only making $2,860 a month.

D-Roc hammered out a sweet deal ... 'cause, according to the docs, his child support payments are now just $550 a month -- plus, he got a payment plan for the $45K in back support he owes.

One more reason D-Roc needed a break -- he has 5 other mouths to feed.

Well, considering his DUI & marijuana possession bust last summer, it would appear he's still finding room in the budget for booze and weed. Pay for your kids you f***ing loser.

Rap is not music, it should not be acknowledged for awards. It's just fad beats, and has been since 2000. It takes a person of a certain mindset to listen to the rap of today.

The career of a rapper is now only about 4 years, TOPS, so they need to quit having all these doggone children..... it's disgraceful.

he should try to write something other than a novelty (filthy) song about miley. i dont like her because she uses her fame to send bad message to young people, has no selfrespect, nothing but gimmicks. but if that is all this man can come up with, he needs to find a new line of work.
