His son was raised by him and his grandfather, who both of them call 'Dad'. He and his father took all the responsibilities and duties of him.

He says he encourages his son to have as many children as possible

James believes children are blessings, and that is the reason he says he encourages his son to make as much money as he can and have as many children as he can. 

He says he has no issues with how many women his son has gotten pregnant, but the only question to him will be if he has asked all the right questions and if he got the right answers and if he has put them in writing. 

And if he has done all of that, he can bring as many grandkids as he can.

He further stated that if his son Nick can provide his kids with culture, love, God and life, then he would say if a woman is worth having s*x with, she is worth having a baby with. 

He admitted to teaching his sons not to sleep with women they will not have babies with. Nick is a father of eight children, who he shares with five different women. 

James said it's important for him to spend quality time with his grandkids, and he is also very supportive of his son's decision and wishes the best for all women.

James was 17 when he became a father for the first time. According to him, Beth (Nick's mom) got pregnant just a week after they met. 

He said he met Beth on the 1st of January, and by the 17th, she got pregnant, but since he was young, he didn't want to get married. 

James says he is grateful that she let Nick stay with him and his mom at two months old. He later went on to marry another woman with whom he welcomed four sons. 

He admitted to not having any messy issues with both women, and they share a friendly bond.
