While it may not seem like Lil Boosie, falls in line with our target audience, there are folks, particularly black women, who ride for Boosie hard core. My friend is one of those people. Months before he was released, she talked about hosting a prayer circle for the once incarcerated rapper. And when it was announced that he was being set free for real this time, she made this image her profile picture:
Even though we come from the Midwest, far from Louisiana, my girl is committed, truly down for the cause. And she’s not the only one. I was speaking to a woman who works as an anchor for the Baton Rouge, CBS affiliate and she said when they broke the news of his release, it quickly became the best performing story of the past three years. She said people would call the station asking if it were true and then hang up screaming in a frenzy once it had been confirmed. People are excited. And we’re here to give the people, even though they’re on the fringes, what they want. And since was the first time we’ve heard from Boosie since his release, we’re detailing the best moments from the #BoosieSpeaks press conference.
When you have a live show, there’s always a chance for something to go terribly wrong. Through its twelve year history (yeah 106 & Park is 12 years old) there have never been any completely outrageous moments. No one got cussed out or anything, but there have been some moments they left the livest studio audience and those of us viewing at home, feeling some type of way. Check out these moments below.
Lil Webbie must not be getting it like he used to in Louisiana because times are so hard he allegedly robbed a woman for, get this, $340. What kind of ratchet amount of cash is that?!
As TMZ tells it:
According to a police report filed in Baton Rouge, LA, Webbie is accused of attacking a woman inside a Chase Suite Hotel early this morning after being banned from the premises — kicking her down two sets of stairs before swiping her purse and stealing $340 in cash.
The details surrounding the altercation are unclear.
According to the report, Webbie was arrested on the scene at approximately 2:30 AM.
Webbie’s rep is completely denying the accusations, saying the rapper met the woman at a party that night but he never kicked her down the stairs or stole her money. In fact, they say Webbie did take the purse, but the money he took out of it belonged to him in the first place and that the unnamed woman is actually the thief in this situation. If that’s true, I’d be quite inclined to believe he did actually kick the chick down the stairs. Webbie is known to have little-to-no respect for women. Check his lyrics and how he was banned from “106 & Park” for getting a little too close to Rocsi if you don’t know about him.
For now, Webbie is a free man after being released on a $9,000 bond. His rep says he plans to fight the case. Let’s see how that goes.

Rocsi is finally explaining that awkward 106 & Park moment that occured a month ago when Terrance J announced that Webbie was no longer welcome on the show. Everyone speculated that Webbie, who appeared as a Freestyle Friday judge Oct. 14, was flirting a little too hard with the hostess, but in a recent interview, Rocsi called the rapper’s behavior all out sexual harassment.
She says, “I have thick skin, but when you’re at your job and someone sexually harasses you in a manner that is very vulgar and disgusting, I have no shame sticking up for myself and telling you that you’re improper…
“I think people should more so applaud a woman sticking up for herself and the people around her sticking up for her than allowing that kind of behavior to happen and I think we allow that behavior to happen too much in our society and we don’t put light on people being inappropriate.”
Rocsi is absolutely correct about what we allow, especially from rappers. Some people seem to think that sort of disrespectful behavior goes along with the territory, and many people questioned whether she was simply blowing Webbie’s behavior out of proportion—despite the numerous inappropriate interviews he has done. I think it’s important that Terrence J and BET stood up for her the way they did.
Check out the rest of Rocsi’s interview below. What do you think about BET banning Webbie from 106 & Park as a result of this incident?

We know, you’re refined. You’re well traveled, well-read you’ve even been known to speak a little French on occasion. And you like to present that image for your co-workers, your parents and random strangers to see. We know girl, your mom raised you right. But if truth be told, every once in a while you’ve almost broke your ankle rushing to the floor to dance to some foolishness that doesn’t even represent what you’re about…most of the time. It’s ok, you can admit it. There are support groups for your kind. (Actually, I’m sure there aren’t but it’s still ok.) Don’t deny the fact that a little foolishness (in moderation) is good for the soul. Really. So with that being said, check out these ig’nant songs you still find yourself dancing to.
*Author’s Note: I know you’ll be looking for Khia’s “My Neck, My Back” to be on this list, but I hate that song with the fire of a thousand suns; so you won’t find it here. While I do acknowledge it’s affect on some, this girl wants no part of it…proceed.
