Meet Albert Roundtree Jr. On the surface, he’s just like another other 6-year-old in suburban Broward County.
Until you find out that Roundtree is a rapper who stars in his own YouTube video of a song called Booty Pop.
And booties indeed do pop all around Roundtree in the clip, making you wonder if he’s in the right place for a first grader.
The video’s gone viral, and viewers’ comments included calls for child welfare officials to take a look.
Ironically, YouTube is restricting the video to users over 18, which means that Albert can’t see his own work. He did in essence write the song since, I’m told, he dictated the lyrics to his mom.
Booty Pop was put out this week by the Oakland Park’s Froze-N-Time Productions. The song is for sale on iTunes, for 99 cents per download.
Video director Tyler Council says he can’t understand what the hoopla is about.
“Albert’s parents paid us to do a video,” Council said. “We went to the pool of a development in Lauderhill and asked a few girls to act in it. There were supposed to be 30 people at a mock pool party but it started raining, so only a few people showed up.
“It was all meant as a joke. It’s a satire of the rap game.”
In several scenes, Albert decides to squirt water on the girls, something else that had some viewers’ attention.
“That was Albert’s idea,” Council said.
By the way, brace yourself for more. Albert’s parents already asked Council to produce a video of another song dictated by Albert, this one titled Girls Girls Girls.
