Boosie Bad Azz recently talked about his admiration for Young Hov and how he would reach the top.
While he was behind bars, the 31-year-old become a rap champion of sorts, and now that the "Free Boosie" movement can happily quell, the Louisiana native wants to lift himself to "Jay Z status," he tells BET.com. In the future, he aspires to spread out in different directions, like Hov has done with the Roc Nation record label, in addition to sports, film, and management ventures. Climbing up to Jay's level is a slow journey, and one that Bossie says he's ready for. "I know it'll take a little time." (BET)
