Louisiana rapper Lil Boosie is getting back to business after performing his first post-prison concert with some help from rap stars Young Buck and Yo Gotti.
According to reports, Boosie Bad Azz’s long-awaited stage return went down Friday (April 11) in Tennessee.
After the cancellation of what supposed to be his first post-prison show, Lil’ Boosie finally hit the stage at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium on Friday (Apr. 11) night. Kicking things off with “Devils,” Bad Azz’s set included tracks like “Exciting,” “My Struggle” and “Set It Off.” The “Show Da World” rapper was also joined onstage by Yo Gotti and Young Buck, who performed “Shorty Wanna Ride.” (VIBE)
Last week, Boosie and rap sidekick Webbie treated fans to a new music video.
Following his release from prison last month, Lil Boosie gets right back to work by dropping the video for “Show Da World” featuring Webbie and singer Kiara. From L.A. to London, the Baton Rouge rapper shows love to his fans and Trill Fam across the globe, and in return, they hold him down. “As for my fans, I love ya’ll, straight up / Ya’ll a part of me so when they hate, they hate us,” he raps. The black-and-white clip, directed by G. Visuals, also features cameos from his friends including DJ Drama, Slim Thug, Bobby V, Paul Wall, and more. (Rap-Up)
Bad Azz became a free man in early March.
Rapper Lil Boosie, whose real is Torrence Hatch, walked out of prison a free man Wednesday evening, after being locked up for more than four years. Warden Burl Cain said Hatch was released from the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola at 7:10 p.m. He was then transferred to a West Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s Office facility in St. Francisville, where family members were waiting for him. “It’s a blessing for him to be home,” said fan Clifford Jackson. “He went through the struggle, he’s home and just wish him the best.” (WAFB News)
The Southern rapper 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)
