Atlanta rapper D-Roc of The Ying Yang Twins has reportedly caught a break in child support payments after pleading with a judge to lower how much he has to dish out each month.
According to reports, D-Roc slumping music career is the cause of him wanting to have cheaper payments.
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.

Reports also claim Roc’s monthly salary is under $3,000 despite having hit singles to his name.
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. (TMZ)
Last summer, Roc hit up SOHH and talked about Ying Yang being the originators of today’s current twerk movement.
“I look at it like everybody’s showing love for us starting something that everybody loves. The only thing I can really say about it is we need to come back and show them how to really do it. Everybody just took it and went with it, turning it into something else but they’re not doing it right. When you do it right, you expect that. Everybody’s just playing with it right now. In the same twerk songs, they’re too hard, they’re doing too much. It’s supposed to be about the female and what you’re supposed to do is get them to shake that a**. They need to know how to shake their a**. The thing about it is they tell a female what to do but they do it too hard at the same time. You look at them and they look like they’re not supposed to be doing it. They talk to the girl like they would talk to a n*gga, like, “I’ll beat your a**, start shaking that a**.” I’m like, “God d*mn.” What do you want to do, fight her or have her shake her a**?” (SOHH)
Ying Yang’s Kaine also co-signed Roc’s stance and spoke on their trend-setting ways.
“There’s artists out there making nice songs but they’re not making songs to the magnitude that we do like when we came up with it with Mr. Collipark. It goes back to the saying, “If you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself.” That’s what we’re about to do. We’re about to take our lane and make people move. If you’re not doing it right, then you gotta get over to the slow lane.” (SOHH)
