Boosie Badazz credits the late great DMX as the best live performer he’s ever witnessed in person, revealing the legendary rapper left him feeling emotional.
The Baton Rouge, Louisiana native was only a teen when he went to the Hard Knock Life Tour, his first major concert. Fourteen-year-old Boosie and his cousin were so in awe of the performance, they were moved to tears. Boosie opened up about the concert and the effect DMX had on him during a recent interview on Shade 45.
“The best person I ever seen perform was DMX,” Boosie said during an appearance on Sway’s Universe. “He made me cry. I was 14 years old,” he said, explaining that his uncle took him to the show. “JAY-Z opened up for him … I saw him perform in Jacksonville, Florida. DMX made me cry.”
By the end of the set, Boosie and his cousin were a mess, clinging to each other for emotional support.
“When he said that prayer at the end bro? Me and my cousin [were] holding hands,” Boosie said before adding, “man, we was holding hands crying.” He went on to explain, “It was my first big concert I ever been to … I never seen nothing like that in my life.” Check out the clip below and watch the episode at the end of the page.
