(AllHipHop News) Since Lil Boosie’s return he has been compared to everyone from Obama to Jesus Christ. During an EXCLUSIVE interview with AllHipHop’s Chuck Creekmur, the Baton Rouge legend spoke on upcoming collaborations, being called “Boo Pac” in prison and how his lyrics led to a conspiratorial effort to incarcerate him.
One of the main artists Boosie has been compared to has been the late Tupac Shakur. Boosie reveals a letter he received from a fan while in prison who explained why she not only compare the two artists but referred to Boosie as “Boo Pac”:
She said ‘the reason why I call you Boo Pac is because y’all music the only one I ever shed tears to. If your music can make somebody cry it speaks to them. So, I just feel we have a lot of similarities as far as music that can touch people. I guess we’ve had court cases too. [Laughs]
While serving his five year prison sentence, Boosie was accused of hiring Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding to murder 35-year-old Terry Boyd and Boosie’s lyrics were used in the court case. According to Boosie, he belives his prison sentence was predicated on a conspiracy to incarcerate him in order to shut him up:
I really think that was based on some of the music I made. Some of the songs I talk about the court system and what they doing to Black people. I made songs about how I don’t care for the police that’s harassing. I was the voice of the people who couldn’t say nothing. When you the voice, plus you living better than these people that you talking about, you become a priority.
Boosie admits that he will no longer mention names as often in his lyrics as to avoid such negative attention.
