It's booty poppin' season. Everybody knows that: From the old school playa to the young buck, to the kid headed to first grade ... wait what? Yeah. These 6-year-olds not only checkin' for booties, they droppin' singles about it.

Another win for the state of Florida: Albert Roundtree has a minor web hit with his song "Booty Pop," now, it ain't exactly "Tip Drill," but it's definitely picking up some heat on the web, mostly because lil' an is 6 years old singing about his love for round bubbly a**ses. The girls in the video may not be as bootylicious as you'd expect, based on the song title, but that doesn't mean people aren't upset.

"Albert Roundtree Jr. is a 6 year old rapper from South Florida," reads the description for "Booty Pop" -- the alleged music prodigy's first music video, which, ironically, he is not allowed to watch. Scenes featuring semi-nude women popping their booties in Albert's face while he raps about "swag" have caused the video to be flagged for content on YouTube. It is now age restricted, meaning only registered users 18 and older can watch it.(Gawker)

Kids will be kids, I suppose. And this is a new age, with new kids, with new technology, but many question the decency of having such a young male dropping this type of video. Surely, it would not be as cute if it were a female, somesay.

As a writer at Vibe.com points out, "And let's be real, if Albert were a 6-year-old girl swimming in a sea of d-ck soup singing about making her booty pop, would it still be so funny and amusing then, or would somebody be on the phone to Benson and Stabler?"(Miami New Times)

Despite the controversey, lil man is rackin' up mad views from "Booty Pop." Do I smell a 2013 BET Award?

The video has been a hit, with more than 224,000 views already but with over 3,000 dislikes many YouTube users expressed their disgust. Surely most six-year-olds are too young to know how to make a woman move her behind.(DailyMail)

At the end of the day, seems like the kid is just having fun. Hey, at least he ain't stealin' his grandmother's SUV and smokin' cigawetts with his friends, right? SOHH Watcha Think: Are the adults in his life out of pocket for letting him drop a song/video like this?
