Lil Boosie, the embattled Baton Rouge rapper who was recently released from a four-year prison sentence, is determined to continue his rap career. But he's not the same Boosie.
Boosie's music has at times directly implicated him and his friends in actual murders, but the man in this interview with Hot 97 seems humbled by the results.
When Boosie was released, Toriana, his very young daughter, starred in an Instagram video in which she made it very clear how excited she was for her father to come home. It was profane, but also a happy moment. A little girl was getting her father back, and no matter how she expressed that, her joy was immeasurable.
But when the crazy Hot 97 personalities started imitating Toriana, and playing up the video as entertainment, Boosie wasn't all in:
"I was embarrassed... I got on her you know, I fussed at her... I was just home so I ain't whup her..."
He also told AllHipHop:
"I was too happy to fuss. You know, after that I told her I didn’t want her saying the word. But, she was one of those that went through ‘your daddy ain’t coming home’, ‘yo daddy this’ in schools and such. "So, I think it was just.. when I called her and told her I was coming home, I think it was all the stuff she went through coming out. I didn’t know she had it in her."
"(Lean has) f*cked up a lot of rappers and the culture of hip hop." "Once you on, it's hard to get off... it's damn near impossible."
Boosie knows best.
The prison industry is one of America's largest problems. Let's just hope Boosie learned more than enough to never return to it.
