BEWARE! The FED's is watchin'.
A man in Massachusetts is facing child abuse and neglect charges because of his 9-year-old son's gangster rapper image. Luis Rivera says his son, Luis Rivera Jr., is not guilty of doing anything but playing a role.
In a video under the stage name Lil Poopy, the 9-year-old refers to himself as Cocaine Cowboy and continues to drop bars about designer threads, fancy cars, machine guns, and.... hoes. Not only are the child's lyrics questionable, the video itself shows adult woman "twerking it for a real nig*a," as he taps a cheek or two.
Some of Lil Poopy's lyrics include "I'm a coke boy I'm a- I'm a coke boy/ I think I'm French Montana- I'm a coke boy... I'm a bad boy, I'm a- I', a bad boy.. I think I'm P-Diddy/ Thought they seen a ghost it's like they seen Biggie."
In the child's defense, Rivera Sr. says the behavior is learned from sports. "When you hit a home run, when you go to the bleachers, they tap you on the butt," said Rivera. "He's not doing anything wrong."
Reportedly, Lil Poopy's bars caught the attention of Rap star French Montana, who signed the 9-year-old and often includes him in his performances. Lil Poopy has allegedly made $7,500 for each performance.
Police do not see the child's behavior as harmless and have filed a report with the state child welfare officials on the grounds of alleged abuse and neglect. Lt. David Dickinson told The Enterprise newspaper, "It's a bit much for a 9-year-old. It warrants the attention of the Department of Children and Families."
Lil Poopy's father is standing by his son's dream. He claims Lil Poopy is living out his childhood while focusing on his education. "He goes to school everyday," said Rivera. "He knows, 'No school, no rappin'. His teachers love him; he's a really smart kid. He still plays basketball and baseball. He was one of the best hitters on his team."
So we have to ask: Are the charges valid or should the police stop hatin'?
