The Rap Game is Lifetime’s new reality TV show produced by Queen Latifah and Jermaine Dupri. Dupri mentors five young, aspiring rappers in Atlanta. All of the kids (they’re aged 12-17) are vying for a record contract with Dupri’s So So Def label. Some have more experience than the others, including one of the youngest, 12-year-old Lil’ Poopy.
At the age of 9 Lil’ Poopy (born Luis Rivera Jr.) got his first 15 minutes of fame. His controversial video “Pop That,” a remix of French Montana’s song, featured the fourth grader slapping the behind of a woman twerking in see-through pants. Since then Lil Poopy has made more than 200 videos, and has performed with Puff Daddy, Rick Ross and French Montana, among others. His father, Luis Rivera Sr., continues to “do anything to see his son rise to the top — including hiring the hottest models and renting out Ferraris for his son’s music videos.” The Rap Game airs Fridays at 10pm on Lifetime.
