Louisiana rapper Lil Boosie recently talked about his return to the rap game after a long stint behind bars and how he quickly adjusted himself to today’s most popular social media platforms. #BoosieTime
Despite acknowledging handfuls of tools like Skype and Instagram, Boosie Bad Azz said Apple’s FaceTime app is his go-to.
“I didn’t know about Instagram or FaceTiming or Skype,” Boosie admitted in an interview. “I didn’t know about all that. That was crazy for me, you know? [What do I use the most?] FaceTime. … [Next single?] I really haven’t decided yet. It’ll probably be my ‘FaceTime’ record. I got a FaceTime record with Trey Songz. Trey Songz is on the album, too. … It’s actually about FaceTime with my little friend.” (Rap-Up TV)
During a recent media/press run, Bad Azz reminded onlookers he was still coping with today’s technology and terminology.
LOL! It’s been too long for Boosie Bad. The Louisianna rapper was released from prison last week, and although while on the inside, he got hipped on to Twitter, there are some social networking skills he still has to find out. Check out Boosie as he gets schooled on what a ‘selfie’ is. (In Flex We Trust)
Despite its massive popularity, rap star Eminem recently admitted he did not dig too much on social media.
“Honestly, I don’t know because I don’t really, that’s a hard question to answer too because I honestly don’t really pay attention to that part of it,” Em said in an interview when asked how he handles the pressure of today’s social media outlets. “I don’t sit on a computer. I tweet. I get my tweet on. [laughs] Nah. I don’t really follow that stuff, man, I just, you know, I just want to say this: I just rap. And I’m going to keep saying that because that’s all I do. I actually don’t want to keep saying that but that’s all I do. So, to just keep giving the same answer, it’s really all I do. You know what I’m saying? I don’t even shower. I did today because I knew I was doing this interview. [laughs]” (“Rap City”)
Recently, Young Money’s Drake said the authenticity and realness of Twitter should be examined more closely by users.
“Twitter isn’t real, by the way. There’s no gauge on real life on Twitter,” Drizzy argued. “That’s a terrible medium to exist in. You can enjoy it. You can even indulge in it. Just don’t live your life by that weird code on that Internet program.” (CRWN)
