Everyone seems to have something to say about the new video “Booty Pop” by 7-year old Albert Roundtree Jr. The little boy has gotten nearly a million views on Youtube, but many of those views are not from fans, but from people who are outraged to see a child putting out this kind of music. Dr. Boyce Watkins, writing for KultureKritic.com, puts it into perspective, noting that the little boy’s music is not just satire, but can have a largely negative impact on the children who see it.
Dr. Watkins also says that rather than producing future doctors and lawyers, there are too many black people who want their children to be the next great hip hop artist. Dr. Boyce says more:
Tyler Council could be considered to be “the man,” for his most recent achievement, but he probably doesn’t feel that way. Council is the mind behind the video “Booty Pop” by 7-year old Albert Roundtree Jr. The boy who doesn’t yet know how to divide and multiply certainly knows how to take the measurements of a grown woman, as he spits lyrics about doing things to women that I didn’t learn till I was in graduate school. Even more interesting is that the video starts with the little boy shooting off a Super Soaker water gun at the women, an obvious play on the “Super soak that hoe” terminology used by Soulja Boy in his hit song back in 2008.
