thought you and LaChat were enemies because people started calling her the new
Queen of Memphis.
Gangsta Boo: That
was all a conspiracy started by Hypnotized Minds. Juicy (J), me and Chat talk
on the phone quite often. We was just brainwashed. I was trynna figure out why
she was saying certain things or why were they
making her say certain things. Once me and her talked and exchanged stories,
you wouldn't believe how much these n*ggas try to start stuff between me and
her. Now she's in the same predicament I was in a long time ago. She still in
the raft with them n*ggas and I tried to tell her along time ago them n*ggas
aint gonna pay you. She said she aint received not one check off of Murder She
Smoked! Not one!
AllHipHop: Is she
still signed to them?
Gangsta Boo: Yea
she's still signed to them. She trynna break it off with them right now, but
she is still signed. I'm pretty sure she'll give you a story.
wasn't even on the new album or nothing!
Gangsta Boo: They
took her off the album. They called me bragging about it, bragging about how
they do their artists and then called them telling them that I called him trynna
be back in the group. I'm like n*gga please! Never that! It's a wrap. I left
yall. I did that because I was a hundred percent loyal to them n*ggas but I
was traveling more, getting smart and I had certain industry friends that were
giving me advice. Not just rappers, but CEO's
giving me advice. I felt it was a decision that I had to make for myself.
the sound that you have with Hypnotized Minds, you know they have that sound
that nobody is doing. So what kind of sound will you be coming out with now?
Gangsta Boo: It's
still the same sound. They enhanced my sound but they didn't create it. If anything
they all sound like Project Pat to me. But aint nothing different but the beat
and I've worked with good producers that weren't rookies. They knew exactly
what I wanted.
AllHipHop: So you
work in Atlanta now?
Gangsta Boo: Yeah,
well this is where I handle most of my business. I'm just going back and forth
from here to Memphis. I usually handle most of my business in Atlanta.
made you make that move?
Gangsta Boo: Memphis
is a great city. It's got a lot of talent in it, but it feels so closed in.
I feel kinda sorry for my hometown as far as the music scene because the way
Hypnotized got it set up. You see the way Atlanta
got it set up? Everybody is off the chain from T.I. to Youngbloodz to Killer
Mike. Paul and them have it set up and they telling the radio stations not to
play certain music. Even my new single from what I'm hearing!
is your new album dropping?
Gangsta Boo: The
album drops October the 14th and its called The Soap Opera. The single is actually
heating up the mix shows as we speak. It's called "Sippin' and Spinnin."
It was just a single that we put out for the DJ's.
Gangsta Boo: "Sippin
and Spinnin" there's three verses and each verse is talking about something
different. In the first verse I'm talking about my life. In the second I'm saying
I'm still the underground queen, so its basically just a street song. Nothing
commercial. I'm trynna to be on that underground queen type of stuff. I'm not
a pop head but.........whateva
AllHipHop: So are
there any guest appearances on this album? I know you've worked with Foxxy Brown.
Gangsta Boo: Nah.
I wish all the females that are underrated could just get up on one song and
stand up like the n*ggas is doing it. There's really no guest appearances. I
did everything on the album. I think people are really going to appreciate the
time and effort I took to working on the album.
you took a lot of time making sure this was the best thing you could make including
lyrics and stuff?
Gangsta Boo: I'm
not gonna say the best thing because I consider all my work as the best even
when I was writing poetry. I did put a lot of time in it, no question.
