Lil Boosie had a chance to get out and promote himself as well as party with his friends Webbie and Young Jeezy during BET Hip-Hop Awards weekend in Atlanta a few days ago. Boosie doesn’t have too much time left before he goes to prison. As part of plea bargain stemming from weapons-possession and drug charges, the Louisiana MC has to take a break from the limelight.
“I gotta go away for, like, 10 months to a year,” Boosie said in ATL. “It’s just a minor setback for a major comeback. I was gonna take ‘em to trial, but I’m not gonna take them to trial. They offered me a deal. In Louisiana, you can’t really win, bruh. So I’m gonna do my year, come back home, step it up even more. I leave on November 9.”
Although Boosie’s latest LP, Superbad: The Return of Boosie Bad Azz, was just released last month, he’s already finished his next LP.
“I turned in the album this Tuesday to Warner Bros. It’s gonna be called Free at Last,” he said. “It’ll drop the week I come home. It’s gonna be crazy. Crazy, man.”
Young Jeezy and B.G. appear on the album, but Boosie said most of the tracks feature just him. “I done shot four or five videos already,” he revealed. “We’re gonna pace them as I go in. It’s official.”
Before Free at Last’s run, Superbad is getting its just due. “Missing You” is a strong contender to be that album’s next single.
