Smack That: Probing Lil Poopy

NEED TO KNOW
  • 10-year-old rapper dishes about sex and drugs
  • Child welfare investigating father

"Pop That" is the name of a rap video featuring a blinged out, booty-grabbing rapper. It's making the rounds on YouTube right now.

Nothing new, right?

Well, the issue in this case is that the emcee grabbing the mic is not a man with gobs of street cred. He's 10-years-old.

In "Pop That" he says, “Coke ain't a bad word.” Some of his other videos show him swearing and slapping a woman’s bottom.

The videos didn't just grab our attention; they've also caught the eye of child welfare authorities in Massachusetts who are now investigating Lil Poopy’s family. But the boy's father says his son is doing nothing wrong, and their lawyer claims that Lil Poopy has a First Amendment right to rap whatever he pleases.

Our panel chimed in with a very lively discussion.
