I usually don’t trip off internet shit…but years later, I keep seeing photos and clips from this interview I did with Lil Boosie from 4 years ago. Nine times out 10 the clips are taken out of context and totally misconstrue what’s actually being said.
A quick backstory: I interviewed Boosie for what wound up being his last interview before he went away to prison. Boosie had already been sentenced and scheduled to go in later that month.
It was for Ozone Magazine and we we’re supposed to do it at the office. But one of the SUVs in his caravan got pulled over and dude was doing stuff in his SUV that surely would have got him arrested on the spot and sent in early…so him and his driver just went on to their hotel and I was asked to meet them there for the interview since they didn’t want to risk driving around and getting pulled over elsewhere or later.
Boosie had quite a bit to say and the the interview had quotes galore…on some Southern shit, it was almost my Kevin Powell x 2Pac for VIBE moment. Dude was going off on everybody.
I was not included in that bunch though. But to let the internet tell, buddy gave me the wrath!
One, Boosie cool and all but um…brah did not tell THIS reporter to kiss or suck anydamnthing.
The interview was for a print feature, meaning that it was conducted in a standard on-camera way with a lot of back and forth. Motion Family was following Boosie around for a documentary about his last days a free man. They recorded parts of the interview for me to post on my blog at the time, it wasn’t produced to be an on-camera interview. But, as with most stuff on the internet, people like to cut and take their favorite parts and make up some Frankenstien’ed ass story.
There are dozens of clips and photos making it look like buddy is going off on me personally, which is not true.
Only reason I’m even bothering with this is because to this day, a new clip or meme comes out or somebody who sees this stuff for the first time asks “damn, what to do to make Boosie snap on you like that?!?”
If you want to know who he was going off on, read the thing in its entirety, internets…
