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.
