Lil Boosie attends Boosie Speaks press conference, says the rap game is "wide open for me to take over."
Baton Rouge, Louisiana rapper Lil Boosie and Trill Entertainment held a Boosie Speaks press conference today (March 10) to update fans and the media on the status of the newly-released wordsmith. The conference was attended by Bun B, Jeezy, and Webbie, who all spoke briefly on Boosie before the rapper appeared on stage.
Following dialogue from the trio of artists present at the press conference and Boosie’s mother, Boosie’s team of lawyers offered an update on his legal standing. According to his lawyers, the rapper has served all his required time and could possibly be on probation for up to four years. They revealed that Boosie also has a routine hearing in court scheduled for this Thursday, March 13.
Upon making his entrance, Boosie informed those watching that he wrote 1,118 songs while in prison and even has a record for pop star Justin Bieber. The rapper appeared confident about his return to music, stating that the rap game is wide open and ready to be taken over.
“As for the rap game, I feel like the music I got, the rap game wide open for me to take over,” Boosie said. “I feel like what I been hearing these last three, four days on the radio and stuff is different from my music. Like I said, it’s different from my music. And different brings greatness. So, I just feel I stand alone in the music industry to tell you the truth.”
In addition to the over 1,000 songs he penned while incarcerated, Boosie says he also wrote his own movie titled Boosie The Movie.
“Well, I wrote my own movie, Boosie The Movie. I might shop it, but I’m probably gonna get my own money and do it myself and I’m gonna try to put it in theaters cause it ain’t no movie like this movie. This the real life story,” he said.
After serving over four years in prison, Boosie revealed that he isn’t familiar with rap’s newer artists since he didn’t listen to much music during his time spent at the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola.
“I ain’t really listened to music when I was in [there]. You know, I just focused on my music,” Boosie said. “And I didn’t even know really the new rappers or nothing unless I read about them in Hip Hop Weekly. So, I wasn’t too much on people’s music. I was just focused on me…I was seeing they success as far as magazines.”
Lil Boosie was released from the Louisiana State Penitentiary on March 5. He was sentenced to prison in 2009 following a drug possession charge and was later sentenced to eight additional years in prison after being found guilty of attempting to smuggle drugs into prison.
