The father of 9-year-old French Montana affiliate Lil Poopy could be in serious trouble for the youngster’s raunchy videos. The Brockton, Mass., police department launched a child welfare investigation to determine whether or not Poopy, born Luie Rivera Jr., is being properly cared for and if his father, Luie Sr. is guilty of any type of negligence or child abuse. Lil Poopy has appeared in music videos holding stacks of money and smacking women on the backside.
“It’s a bit much for a 9-year-old. It warrants the attention of the Department of Children and Families,” said police Lt. David Dickinson.
Lil Poopy was discovered by Montana after he saw the kid in the recording studio with his father. Luie Sr., downplayed any seriousness regarding the allegations. “I’ll call my lawyer first thing in the morning,” he said. “He’s not doing anything wrong. He’s acting.”
“I love my son, I adore my son,” Rivera told the Boston Herald. “He’s not doing anything wrong. He’s not doing drugs, he’s not drinking alcohol. There are other kids out there killing kids, doing drugs, molesting. He’s just singing hooks. He’s not hurting anyone.”
“The kid’s got talent, why are they so worried about him rapping?” Rivera asked. “Everybody’s got a dream. Muhammad Ali wanted to be a boxer. The kids on ‘American Idol’ want to do country or rock. He’s doing what he wants to do, you can’t knock him for that.”
His first single, a remix version of Montana’s “Pop That” plays into the fourth grader’s controversial image. On the song, he raps, “‘Coke’ ain’t a bad word, ‘Coca-Cola.’ ‘Coke’ ain’t a bad word. It’s only soda.”
