"My Baby Daddy" was a hit single by B-Rock and the Bizz from their debut album Porkin' Beans & Wienes. The song used a sample of "Best of My Love" by The Emotions.

Released in early 1997, "My Baby Daddy" became one of the year's biggest hits and was top 10 hit for the group, reaching 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. Less than two months after its release the single had sold 500,000 copies and earned a gold certification on May 28, 1997 from the Recording Industry Association of America. Despite the success of the single, problems with their label LaFace Records resulted in the group leaving the label without releasing a follow-up single or their debut album. The album was eventually released two years later on the independent label Tony Mercedes, however, the group never released another single or album.
