The rapper formerly known as Lil Boosie also discusses his name change, his relationship with Webbie and his plans for music.
During a recent conversation with XXL, Boosie Badazz spoke on various topics including his approach to music following his release from jail last March.
“I had [a lot of] papers I wrote on,” he says. “Half of them was already in my head, hooks and shit like that. I had done maybe 100 songs since I’ve been home. Once I drop the album, my label, Bad Azz Music Syndicate, we just gonna flood the streets with music, man.
“Yeah, yeah, yeah,” Boosie adds regarding whether or not those songs will be released. “We just basically gonna mass produce the streets with Boosie music. It’s just, we gotta get this album. The mixtape, the album, then let’s blast this game.”
Discussing his current plan with music and his upcoming album, Boosie Badazz says he’s still trying to figure everything out due to numerous setbacks.
“Man, this music stuff crazy, man,” he says. “I felt like I already had the albums, but when it comes down to paperwork a lot of dudes play games with beats, and whatever. There be a lot of things going on with the music that make it get set back. Right now I’m at a point where I was gonna do a double disc, but now I’m gonna put 20 on a single disc and 26 on iTunes. So you know, I’m hustlin’, man. [Laughs] You gotta go get the other ones. So that’s the plan right now.”
Detailing his relationship with friend and long-time collaborator Webbie, Boosie Badazz says the pair have been working together since they were teenagers.
“That’s my boy; me and Webbie been together since we were teenagers,” he says. “Since I was 15, 17 years old, we been in the studio together. We from different hoods, but we been in the studio together, you know. Basically we like brothers. We done been through everything together. We went through some shit, we been through some shit on this road, ‘cause we been on the road a long time, man. We been on the road gettin’ money a long time. We been had those fans that will always love our music. We like brothers.”
While addressing his name change from Lil Boosie, Boosie Badazz says that he’d outgrown his “lil” moniker.
“I just took the Lil off Boosie, ‘cause I just felt like, ‘Damn, how long am I gonna be called Lil?’ That’s how I really felt, you know? I’m a whole G out here, been a G,” Boosie Badazz says. “I don’t have lil problems, shit. Damn, Boosie Badazz. Put a stamp on that, damn. I run a whole record label, I’m a whole entrepreneur. That’s how I just felt; I’m like, man, I don’t want this, don’t put that on there.”
Finally, while addressing the one-year anniversary of his release from jail, Boosie Badazz says the last 12 months have been the “best year of my life.”
“I might just be prayin’ somewhere, ya heard. I might just be prayin’ somewhere,” he says regarding his plans for the anniversary. “The year at home has been the best year of my life. It’s been the best year of my life, and I still got a month. It’s crazy right now. I might just do something with the family. March 5, I think I might name it Real Nigga Holiday. The day I came home, that was a real nigga holiday, I said that in a song. So I’m thinking, not this year, but next year we’re gonna do a little get-together, maybe have a parade.”
