A Massachusetts man is facing child abuse and neglect charges as a result of his nine-year-old son's appearance in sexually suggestive videos where he's rapping about designer clothes, money and 'hoes.'
Luis Rivera says his son, Luie Rivera Jr., has not done anything wrong and is merely acting in the videos, where he is featured slapping women's behinds, riding in a Ferrari, throwing wads of cash in the air and dancing with girls twice his age.
He raps about machine guns, 'groupies,' Louis Vuitton and Gucci swag, and calls himself a 'cocaine
cowboy' as he kisses fistfuls of cash.
Rivera Sr. likened the boy's gestures with women's behinds to the way that baseball players commend each other during a game.
'When you hit a home run, when you go to the bleachers, they tap you on the butt,' Rivera said. 'He’s not doing anything wrong.'
But police in Brockton, Massachusetts - where the boy lives - have filed a reported with the state child welfare officials alleging abuse and neglect against Rivera. 'It’s a bit much for a 9-year-old. It warrants the attention of the Department of Children and Families,” police Lt. David Dickinson told the The Enterprise newspaper.
The fourth grader, who goes by the stage name 'Lil Poopy,' has been signed by Morrocan-born rapper French Montana, the founder and CEO of Cocaine City Records. He performs with Montana's group 'Coke
Boyz' at dance clubs and makes about $7,500 for every performance.
His stage name comes from his more youthful days, when he used to soil his pants often, he says. He mostly raps about girls and money.
'I got money in the bank I could take a loss or two,' he raps in one song. 'Ridin' in the back seat 'cause that's what bosses do. Filet mignon plus I'm eating lobster too ... Oh I hate when Boston lose."
In the refrain, he sings, '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'm a bad boy... I think I'm P-Diddy/ Thought they seen a ghost it's like they seen Biggie.'
The boy's father claims his son never curses in his songs. But during performances with French Montana, he sings along to profanity-laced songs about doing cocaine, marijuana
, and ecstasy
But during performances with French Montana, whose real name is Karim Kharbouch, he sings along to profanity-laced songs about doing cocaine, marijuana, and ecstasy, using machine guns, and having sex with 'pussy bitches.'
His dad insists, though, that Lil Poopy is a good kid who studies hard. 'He goes to school every day,' his dad told the Boston Herald. '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.'
