Lil Poopy, 13, lands a four-year Sony-Epic record deal

Lil Poopy, 13, lands a four-year Sony-Epic record deal | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
He may just be 13-year-old but Lil Poopy - the pint-sized rapper famous for singing about hoes and cocaine aged just nine, has landed his first record deal.

Lil Poopy, whose real name Luis Rivera Jr., has signed a four-year deal with Sony-Epic label which boasts big name artists such as Outkast, Timbaland, P. Diddy and Jennifer Lopez.

The young rap sensation gained notoriety aged nine when he appeared in a music video where he called himself a 'cocaine cowboy' as he rapped about money, hoes and kissed fistfuls of cash.

Its okay to be signed at 13, but to be signed for rapping about drugs is not acceptable. We living in times where this is okay to do. Just to show the younger generation is also lost. Sony signing little boys who have yet to hit puberty rapping about money, cars, clothes and hoes. A disappointment in today's world and music. Music now a days is not the same it was 10 years ago, even 5 years ago.
