An MultiMedia Exposé - Lil' P-Nut. Must. Be. Stopped.

Why erry black kid gotta rap? The venerable Lil' P-Nut is just playing the weedcarrier role in this video, but I'm thinkin' both of these kids need to quit grabbing their packages and go do some homework or something otherwise productive.

Where Is Obama?!? Better yet, where are the parents?

Ok, who am I kidding? If my kids had this sorta natural Swag. Man do I hate that word! charisma, I'd prolly be trying to prep them for Disney Channel careers instead of getting exploited by the music industry.[1] But that's just me.

I just wanted an excuse to run this video, because I'm hip like that, and I went to to a Lil' Wayne concert this weekend (true story). So there. But the more videos I see this kid pop up in, the more concerned I get. Dude is clearly ready for his Roc Nation contract. Peep the work.

The positive/introspective/social commentary track.

The street/traaaap song.

The song for the b*******.

He's even got haters.[2]

Yep, this kid's gonna flame out by age 10.

Question: What's the career trajectory for a pre-teen rapper? Is it possible to turn this into something other than passing internet fame? Is this child being exploited or are his parents simply cultivating his natural talent?

[1] Am I the only one noticing all the "John Wall" references in rap songs of late? I'm thinking it's got more to do with an easy-to-rhyme name than dude's actual popularity.

[2] Yeah, this was meant to be WSHH a parody. It failed. Miserably.
