Timothy “Father MC” Brown’s Craigslist Scam Exposed

May 21st, 2012

Father MC's Craigslist Scam

HSK Exclusive - A group of young aspiring musicians have fallen victim to the pitiful wrath of one low life Hollywood swindler. You may know him as Father MC, a one time rap artist who’s responsible for ripping off tens of thousands of dollars from his victims, promising record deals and high-end recording studio facilities before disappearing with their life savings.

HSK has exclusively learned Timothy “Father MC” Brown used Craigslist to lure his victims. After gaining their trust, the “Treat Them Like They Want To Be Treated” lyricist promised $10K would secure them production and recording deals. It may be the lowest of the low for Father MC to go – all to support his expensive lifestyle in the Hills of Studio City, California.

Here’s the drop:

“Father MC has an ad on Craigslist, seeking new artists to rip off. He takes every client for 10 racks and more.

He takes the artist to the studio and he sells them a pipe dream. Father has been traveling around the country ripping people off. Nicca’s from Chicago are looking for him, cause he owes a large unpaid studio bill. He’s owes them cats in Chicago about $100K for studio time, and they’re asking around for Father MC’s address.

Father MC is a piece of shit for ripping off those kids, Father MC is not only hiding from the streets, he’s ducking child support payments too.”

Is Father MC refusing to cough up child support while living a comfortable life in Hollywood? Of course he is. Don’t believe me.. Ask his daughter Brittany.

    Damn! Didn’t he get arrested at a radio station during an interview for child support? That was like 10 years ago. Is he still making kids? After that Playgirl spread he might as well get on the pole and stop taking people money. Better yet ask Mary for a loan out of that chicken wrap money.

    He was sponging off Theresa Randle. I see this is his new hustle after she kicked him to the curb. When was the last time anybody heard the name “Father MC” or Tim Brown being kicked around in music circles? They need to arrest him for ripping people off and arrest the idiots who gave him money for being STOOPID.

    This dude Father Mc is exactly the kind of piece of shit that makes it hard for Independent artists to make it in this industry, I met with this dude about a year ago in Studio City after a I replied to a Craigslist ad looking for Hip-Hop artists. This dude told me how he was signed to Diddy and had Mary J Blige as his back up singer (which is true) but now is a wash up. He tried to tell me that for THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS he can get me studio time and his industry connects. I smelled a scam right away and told him to go to hell. Now I read this online

    Hey Angry…
    You can’t spell worth sh*t!!!
    Punctuation is important!!
    1. “Know” has to do with KNOWLEDGE, as in “I know you cannot spell.”
    2 “NO” means NO as in “No, I don’t fall for Father MC’s bullshit.”

    NOTICE HOW I END MY SENTENCES WITH A LITTLE DOT, IT’S CALLED A period. Get to know it, love punctuation. People will judge you without it, as clearly I shown you.

    You pissed me off!!

    James 'rip off' Callahan Reply:

    I met Fambody (Father MC) through James as well. Fam is his “Step in Fetch” house negro. They scam together. James quoted one price and then jacked it up and said he never agreed on the price he said before. I ended up stopping payment on my credit card. Fam just pulled the “Nigga, I know the president of Universal….I can get choo a deal.” He didn’t realize that I knew the president of Universal and he was not the person he was trying to pass off as the president of Universal. He is just working hand in hand with James on the scam. There is a tiny bedroom upstairs in the office in the very back to your left. They promise girls they’re going to get them a deal and bet with each other who can get them in bed first. He tried several times with me with no success. When it became apparent that I was not going to sleep with Fam, he took me out to the parking lot, waved his arms like a toddler in frustration and asked “Why you ain’t let me fuck you?!!!” He abandoned our project which I expected. Never spoke to him again. It is sad, because I could see potential under the fake bravado. He could be a nice guy if he could just be himself instead of this facade of big time old school rapper with all these connections (and insecurities). It’s the worst to see a man lower himself to the point where he has to scam people for money. I’m not mad at him though. It’s obvious that the misery he is bringing upon others is paying him a visit now.

    Honestly as a rap artist Father Mc is for me definitely one of the best of all time especially when it come to mix rap with r&b, but his lifestyle is really fucked up, so many children with so many women and etc., lying to people, that is really fucked up

    This happened to me YESTERDAY!!!! 03/15/2013. It happened step by step as you describe it. Thanks to all of you who blogged and replied about it, I was able to walk away on time and save my money. This is a true scam.

  26. ron bennett |

    Dear YESTERDAY,i was there at the meeting..You are a good singer, but as most artists you need a lot of work..I observed the Producer took his time to listen to you..your songs were average at best..The owner told you he would pay for your mix and mastering..The Producer would spend his time taking you to a higher level with no promises…You came in wanting to have all this and not pay anything, because you made it very clear you had nothing$$$…That is not a Scam because you are poor looking to be discovered with out any risk on your part…Go to American Idol and find out exactly where you are as an Artist, and when they say No before you sing 3 notes…know that this business is not for you…But do not yell Scam, because someone will not give you a free ride ..Even Jacky knows this a Pay to Play Business…

    Ripping people off? mid nineties? sounds like you need a life…Producing an Artist, and all artists need help and taking them to another level…is trying to help them…It’s the Artist and all of them, misconception that Producers owe them a living and a promise for a Record Deal….You wouldn’t be Jacky’s brother would you….a cult of 2 non-believers…Most Artists thrive after being Produced by him…..C Davis

    I dont know what father mc is doing as far as producing music. I know people who he hung around and stole from. One person he stole their credit cards. Another one, he shows up and rolexes and other expensive items are suddenly missing. This has nothing to do with music. He hasnt had a hit in over 25 years. I quess this is how he has been eating.

    No Not the FBI , close…but it’s the F N I frustrated no/talent Investigation because whoever wrote these lies, can’t blame himself for a lack of talent so he blames the Producer who is trying to make him better……..SCAM? First of all, any FBI agent would know immediately that this is a false report because he would ask this moron to rap or sing , and case closed so obvious he sounds absolutely horrible…..Timbaland could not help this Voice, or I should say Non Voice. And as always with Jacky and his losers.. They just don’t get it…….Everyone but Frustrated Jacky knows it’s Pay To Play Business……..And this final commit is for the reader…..of this trash Rap Sheet…..The Nerve of a Studio to actually charge for Studio Time…$$$$ Any objective reader knows that when you cry Fraud as many times as Jacky and his band of losers do……It’s time to lay the blame on the Source …The Artist and the Rap Sheet so called Writer….C Davis
