Lil Boosie Discusses Justin Bieber Collaboration & Daughter's N-Word Usage
The rapper reacts to an Instagram video of his daughter happy to hear he's coming home.
When asked if he worried about the prospect of extra police scrutiny given his status as a rapper, Boosie said that while they’ll be watching, he’s playing it safe. “They not gon’ stay off my radar. I just ain’t—I was doing nothing last time but smoking a little joint or two,” he said. “I ain’t even gon’ do that anymore. They can stay on me all they want, pull me over I ain’t got nothing. I ain't around nobody who got nothing. I ain’t around no negative people, so I’m straight. I ain’t worried about them.“
Speaking on an Instagram post of his daughter excited about his release, Boosie explained being too happy to be angry at her use of the n-word in the clip. “I was too happy to fuss,” he said. “After that, I told her I didn’t want her saying the word, you know. She was one of those that went through ‘Your daddy ain’t coming home’, ‘Yo daddy this’ in schools and such. So, I think it was just..when I called her and told her I was coming home, I think it was all the stuff she went through coming out. I didn’t know she had it in her like that...She went off or whatever. I just told her don’t use the word no more like that. But I ain’t whoop her or nothing. She a straight-A student.” The Instagram video in question, which is available below, features Boosie's daughter saying, "I told y'all niggas...He comin' home today...Told y'all. Y'all better believe it."
During the interview, Lil Boosie was asked about his time in the Angola prison. In response, he described developing a bond with fellow inmates and keeping his time spent behind bars in perspective. “You around somebody so much you develop a certain kind of association with somebody,” he said. “When y’all both exchange stories about pain from y’all families, y’all have a lot in common. You never trust them 100 percent. But, you know, you just—it be somebody who be like, ‘Keep your head up, man. Look at how much time I got?’ Dudes like that, ‘I got 190 years man, you getting mad ‘cause they keep sending you back three or four months.’ They got a lot of real dudes in their, and a lot of fakes.” The rapper went on to describe maintaining his sense of humor while in jail. “Everybody love me in jail,” he said. “I made everybody laugh, I drove everybody. I put that drive down on everybody. That’s the only way I stopped from crying, you know, is to laugh and joke all day.”
