Lil’ Boosie is a rapper hailing from Baton Rouge, Louisiana who was born on the 14th of November 1982. He has released six solo studio albums to date alongside a further five collaboration albums, all of which have received critical and commercial acclaim.
Born Torrence Hatch to a single mother in one of Louisiana’s more dangerous neighbourhoods, Lil’ Boosie has had an upbringing that nearly reads like a list of most likely prospects for a young African-American man in today’s society. The crucial one that’s missing is becoming a gangster. While Boosie grew up around that kind of activity, he tried as hard as he could to steer clear of it, instead immersing himself into the world of basketball playing. While it looked as if his skill at the sport would lead to a college scholarship, he couldn’t escape the bad influences around him and a drugs charge lead him to be expelled from High School.
Not to be deterred, he instead poured his indomitable spirit into rapping. Soon after that he’d become involved with a local rapper turned label owner C-Loc, who was so impressed with Boosie’s work that he immediately got the young rapper recording them in his studio. A self-released debut album came next, entitled “Youngest Of The Camp”, and everything seemed to be going his way, until C-Loc was sentenced to four years in prison. Rudderless without his mentor, Boosie got sent down as well for driving a stolen car.
It could have utterly derailed his incredibly promising career there and then, and it probably would have if it wasn’t for Pimp C’s Trill Entertainment label. They signed him, got him out of jail, and after that he really started coming into his own, with his first album released on the label “For My Thugz” selling 30’000 copies completely independently. Ever since then, Boosie has been one of Hip-Hop’s true nearly men, never quite stepping out of trouble’s shadow but always justifying it with great music that, since 2005, has been being released by Asylum, a label supported by Warner Brothers Records.
Clearly, if you can work with everyone from Three 6 Mafia and T.I, to Young Jeezy and 2 Chains while still getting in trouble with the law you’re a talent to be reckoned with, and Boosie is still very much in his prime. Highly recommended.
