T-Baby: ‘Beavis and Butt-Head’ Feature Yields Death Threats
While Detroit rapper T-Baby initially claimed to be laughing her way to the bank after MTV paid for the rights to feature her viral hit 'It's So Cold in the D' on the newly revived 'Beavis and Butt-Head,' she has since reported receiving racist death threats.
T-Baby, born Latonya Miles, gained public attention in 2008 when her low-budget video for 'It's So Cold in the D' went viral, and was more than happy to let MTV's demented animated teens ridicule her video in exchange for a whopping $4,000, telling TMZ "People have been making fun of me my whole life ... so, it's no big deal because I'm still getting paid from them ... so I'm laughin' all the way to the bank."
Unfortunately, the 'Beavis and Butt-Head' feature has brought T-Baby some unexpectedly negative repercussions, receiving over 100 threatening text messages per day.
"Goodnight n-----, I wish all you f---ers would go back to Africa where you belong not here. Sleep by your window so I can get to you easier," one text read, according to T-Baby.
While the threats and insults have clearly upset the aspiring rapper, she has yet to file police reports, proclaiming herself "no snitch," and vowing to continue with pursuing career at all costs.
"I feel in a lost situation because I have no one but my son ... but I refuse to stop. Only way I can show how I am here to stay is keep doing my thing," T-Baby explained.
