Lil’ Boosie – Mama
For all the mamas.
Lil’ Boosie – Mama
Lil’ Boosie – Hands Up
I really wanted this new Boosie single to be a Bone Thugs reference but instead it’s a much more well-trod Big Pun/Lil’ Wayne/Rich Homie Quan/Ty$/etc. etc. reference.
Lil’ Boosie – Retaliation 
Ty$ – Stand For 
YG – My Nigga (feat. Rich Homie Quan & Young Jeezy) 
Lil’ Wayne – Ride 4 My Niggas 
Big Pun – Off Wit His Head (feat. Prospect) 
Both of these videos came out in the past week and it’s interesting how the artist and titles are just a couple syllables away from each other but COMPLETELY different in every other way.
Lil’ Wayne – Krazy
Lil’ Boosie – Crazy

Lil’ Boosie – Show the World (feat. Webbie & Kiara)
Remember when Lil’ Boosie wrote that heartfelt letter to his fans from prison about not emulating him, but surpassing the level of conduct he’s practiced? Or the relief when it was revealed that whether or not Lil’ Boosie was found guilty for the murder charge he was facing, that the would not be facing the death penalty? Well after some surprising twists of fate in the courtroom over the past couple days, Lil’ Boosie has officially been found NOT GUILTY for the murder of Terry Boyd! WOOOO!!
Does that mean we’ll be getting the new Boosie album right away? Maybe so, maybe not. Boosie did already plead guilty to drug charges that will keep him behind bars for 8 years, but according to this article, part of the evidence seized in the murder trial was the hard drive from his computer which contains “albums for days”, so we just might be gettin’ some new tunes if the right people can get that hard drive back. We’ll just have to see. Worst case scenario, at least we’ll get a new Lil’ Boosie album in… 2020 or so? Better than having him locked up for life, which is what he was facing. Boosie’s gettin’ free!
Lil’ Boosie – Loose as a Goose (feat. Foxx & Mouse)
Those of you that have been hangin’ with me since the beginning will remember the post where I gave you all a little background on the letter that Lil’ Boosie wrote from prison encouraging anyone who looks up to him to challenge themself to not fall into the same patterns and traps that he’s fallen into. I have no idea now, and I have no way of knowing in the future if Boosie was involved in the murder he is about to stand trial for, but I do know for certain that I love his music, and that I don’t believe any crime deserves being executed over.
Today, we got news that the more important half of those feelings that I have has been set at ease: Boosie will not face the death penalty, no matter what happens in his upcoming trial. I would of course love to also have news that he was going to put together some new music at some point, somehow, but I’m infinitely glad that they won’t be putting this man to death for the crimes he’s on trial for. I consider anybody not getting put to death to be good news. Maybe he can still make it to the top, all the way from the bottom.
Lil’ Boosie – The Rain (feat. Lil’ Trill)
I feel like Lil’ Boosie’s letter to Alex and other kids he is a role model to that just came out has been circulating pretty heavy on the internet lately, so I won’t rehash the whole thing for you here, but reading about it did inspire me to put up a couple relevant songs for y’alls listening pleasure. Matt put me on to Lil’ Boosie a little while back, so I gotta give props to him for this one, otherwise I woulda been totally ignorant of this whole scenario. Thanks man.
I wish there was a video for this first track, but it was from when he was first startin out (back when he was still Pimp C Presents… Lil’ Boosie), so there probably wasn’t much money in the Trill Entertainment vaults to make tons of videos for this release. It’s still a cool song though, I think.
Lil’ Boosie & Webbie – Keep it Gutta
And here’s a more recent one, and honestly one of my favorite videos I’ve seen recently. I can’t not love a video where the rapper spends a good third of the video gettin a pump from his friend.
Lil’ Boosie – Top to the Bottom
Man, it’s painfully ironic hearing the intro to this song now in light of this recent story; he sends it out to everybody who thought he’d be dead or in jail by now, and it turns out he is already one and just might end up being both of those things before too long. Damn shame. Maybe someday he can be back on top.
But hey, let’s finish this happy. Reading that letter Boosie wrote, especially when he challenges his followers to “be better than me”, immediately reminded me of this TI song I just recently discovered, and since TI just got out of jail, it’s a little more of an uplifting note to end on.
TI – Be Better Than Me
