A child rapper associated with French Montana’s Coke Boys crew is currently the subject of an investigation by child protective services. (The fact that he’s a child associated with a group called the Coke Boys should give you a hint on what the problem is.)
Massachusetts rapper Lil Poopy (real name Luis Rivera Jr.,) is a 9-year-old who is signed to French Montana’s Cocaine City Records label. The elementary school aged rapper may have performances with Diddy and Rick Ross under his small belt (he reportedly charges $7,500 per performance), but law officers are investigating whether or not he’s also the victim of child endangerment.
According to local sources, Lil Poopy’s father, Luis Rivera Sr., has been charged with his neglect. Massachusetts child welfare services is alleging that Poopy’s drug and money themed song material (he’s got a mixtape out called “Coke Ain’t A Bad Word”), as well as the rap videos featuring him smacking scantily dressed women on the behind (see video below)…may not be entirely suitable for a child. As one police officer put it:
“It’s a bit much for a 9-year-old. It warrants the attention of the Department of Children and Families.”
Of course, Poopy’s father clearly disagrees and has publicly insinuated that the whole investigation was racially motivated (Poopy is Puerto Rican).
Through his attorney, Rivera made this statement:
“This is just what I would call a racially tinged investigation because whoever watched it probably doesn’t understand rap. This isn’t some child left alone that’s not going to school. It all comes down to content in the videos, which is protected by the First Amendment.”
Rivera maintains that his son Poopy is a smart kid who is not “doing anything wrong.” And while the video above is wrong on so many levels – is it enough for the courts to take Poopy away from his dad?
