It’s been a little over a year since Boosie Badazz was released early from what was initially a four-year sentence that turned into a 12-year sentence when the Baton Rouge rapper pleaded guilty to attempting to smuggle drugs into prison.
Thankfully, those dark days are long gone, and Boosie’s back and better than ever.
The Louisiana rapper’s gearing up to release his long-awaited sixth studio album Touchdown 2 Cause Hell. Happy to be experiencing the joys of freedom, Boosie stopped by GlobalGrind’s offices to discuss the inspiration behind his forthcoming new album and channeling anger through his new music.
He also discussed his past indiscretions, making a better life for his children, and Louisiana’s predatory criminal justice system.
Besides the music, Boosie has been writing a script for a biopic he’s planning to release about his tumultuous life. According to Boosie, he reached out to the businessman/rapper 50 Cent to ask for help on how to pitch his biopic to studio investors.
Touchdown 2 Cause Hell drops May 26 and features guest appearances by Chris Brown, Jeezy, Rich Homie Quan, Rick Ross, T.I., and Keyshia Cole.
