"What's In Those Cups?"

Scrappy is coming under fire after sharing a video clip of his daughter, Emani Richardson, seemingly engaging in underage drinking. The controversy came as a result of the rapper’s Instagram post, which he shared on Saturday (May 20).


Scrappy shared a series of pictures and video clips meant to celebrate his daughter’s graduation from high school. “Congratulations to my first born @official_emanii my oldest young Queen,” Scrappy said of his oldest child’s accomplishment.

“I’m so proud of her and the young lady that she’s becoming, [and I] love how she pushed through and got hers and now graduating and heading off to college,” Scrappy shared. “I feel like I didn’t go but God made it to where she could,” the celebrity father said.

“I’m grateful,” Scrappy told his social media fans. “You go girl,” the Reality TV star exclaimed while celebrating his daughter. “Oh yeah,” Scrappy said of the last video in his collage. “The third video is them youngins (sic) takin’ a graduation shot.”

Many fans simply celebrated Emani’s accomplishment. A few critics, however, took issue with Scrappy seemingly allowing his daughter to consume alcohol.

“Now you know you ‘bout to catch hell for underage drinking,” one social media follower admonished. “Take the shot video down,” another supporter suggested. One critic inquired, “What’s in those cups? I’m sure she isn’t 21.”

Fortunately for Scrappy, there were several fans who came to his defense. “Why are these folks acting like they didn’t drink at eighteen,” one fan asked. “The Internet looks for drama,” the social media follower added.

Another fan said, “I definitely took a shot and smoked a blunt for [my high school graduation]. They are going to do it regardless. Might as well do it in front of me where I know you’re safe!”

Emani Richardson is Scrappy’s daughter with businesswoman Erica Dixon. She begins college in the fall.
