Louisiana rapper Lil Boosie has come forward to put an immediate end to negative press shot his way over alleged Photoshopped Christmas pictures.

New footage of Boosie hanging out with his kids during the winter holiday has surfaced online.

As TMZ previously reported … Boosie took a lot of heat this week. He’s adamantly denied doctoring pics of himself to make it look like he’d spent Christmas with his kids. This video makes it clear … he was truth-telling. Boosie’s clearly laying in the same position and the kid — Michael Jordan Hatch — is striking the same pose … and the rest of the kids? They’re in the room showing dad love too. (TMZ)

The Southern rap star released a full music project last October.

Lil Boosie (who apparently prefers to be called Boosie Bad Azz these days) delivers Life After Deathrow, the first project since his long-awaited released from prison earlier this year. The mixtape is light on the guest spots, with only Trey Songz, Yo Gotti, Shy Glizzy and LIV making appearances, but we all know you came here for new Boosie — and there’s a whole 18 tracks from him.

A Boosie representative recently confirmed the rapper making a name change.

Lil Boosie is out of prison after more than five years behind bars, and now he’s got a new rap name to go along with all that newfound freedom. On two of his most recent appearances—”Beez Like” off Jeezy’s Seen It All and “Jet Fuel” from T.I.’s “Paperwork”—the Baton Rouge MC has been credited in the liner notes as Boosie Badazz rather than his original name Lil Boosie. Today a rep for the rapper confirmed that the liner notes weren’t an accident, and that they reflected an official name change for him. (XXL Mag)
