It’s never good to see a child lose their father. Famed reality star rapper Lil Poopy’s father Luis Rivera was busted a in a federal gang and drug raid on conspiracy charges.

Enterprise News reports:

Luis Rivera, who according to investigators is known as “Fat Louie,” was included on a list of 50 people who were arrested and charged in federal courts in Boston on Thursday morning. Rivera, 33, is accused of being a part of a network of numerous leaders, members, and associates of the 18th Street Gang, the East Side Money Gang and the Boylston Gang.

Rivera was charged with conspiracy to distribute cocaine and cocaine base. A grand jury indicted Rivera after evidence was presented that he was in possession of 280 grams or more “of a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of cocaine base,” according to the indictment.

Lil Poopy gained popularity from his appearance on Jermaine Dupri’s Lifetime Channel reality show The Rap Game. Before that he gained some attention when he released his 2012 mixtape, Coke Ain’t A Bad Word on French Montana‘s Coke Boy imprint where the then 9-year old claimed to be “cocaine cowboy.”

Let’s hope that this doesn’t turn into a case of “like father, like son.”
