The family of 9 year-old rapper Luie Rivera is under investigation by Child Protective Services for possible abuse and neglect.
Nicknamed Lil Poopy, Rivera has starred in a slew of raunchy rap videos in which he makes drug references, dances suggestively, and even slaps a woman’s buttocks.
Lil Poopy has peformend alongside the likes of Diddy, and was discovered by rapper French Montana.
The investigation will include interviews with everyone who lives in the child’s home and likely others who have contact with the 9-year-old, such as school officials, DCF spokeswoman Cayenne Isaksen said. Child welfare officials can refer the case to the local district attorney’s office if an investigation finds any criminal behavior.
Lil Poopy music that was posted to an online mix tape site last October has lyrics that include him singing about being a “bad boy” and a “cocaine cowboy.”
It showed about 8,600 downloads and 195,000 views by Monday afternoon.”
Rivera’s family contend that their son is only acting in the videos; he has a stable, supportive home life, and that the investigation is racially-motivated “because whoever watched it probably doesn’t understand rap.”
