G-Unit leader 50 Cent recently talked about his past relationship with Louisiana’s Lil Boosie and just how badly Bad Azz wanted to link up with him following a publicized jail release earlier this month.
According to Fif, Boosie reached out to him as soon as he became a free man but time restraints had delayed them hooking up.
“Boosie had an idea that we were doing together and I’m not sure if I ever got back his vocals on it. Because right after, he was charged with murder and then that shit just got out of hand. I got to get up with him. He tried to reach out to me as soon as he got out but I was travelling and had so much shit going on. I’ll give him a call this week. I haven’t had a chance to finish [the song] but possibly you can hear something from me and Lil Boosie.” (VIBE)
Back in 2010, the Unit head publicly campaigned for Boosie Bad Azz’s freedom.
“Free boosie bad ass I did a joint that never came out befor he went in,” Fif tweeted August 2010. (50 Cent’s Twitter)
Boosie Bad Azz recently talked about his fame and wanting to reach rap mogul Jay Z‘s high-profile status.
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)
While fans have to wait for its full-length release, behind-the-scenes footage from Boosie and fellow Louisiana rapper Webbie’s “Show the World” shoot landed online earlier this month.
Boosie been busy since his release from prison. Having taken his first selfie, dropped a freestyle on the ride home from the pen, and held a press conference, he’s now back with his old running mate Webbie, shooting a video for their song “Show the World.’ Kids, remember what Webbie says, stay in school. Also, don’t forget to wear your Jimmy Graham jersey backwards. (Complex)
