When Lil Boosie was released from prison a month ago, he promised new music almost immediately. Anyone following his answers in interviews or social media can get the idea that he’s been in the studio almost non-stop after the first thing Boosie did with his freedom, which was see his children.
The song “Show da World” with longtime collaborator Webbie was released in January in anticipation of the end of his incarceration and has been getting play on radio stations in Louisiana. It’s not quite as affecting as the most emotionally raw Boosie cuts and much more turnt down than Boosie’s club hits, with its pretty, uplifting chorus from singer Kiara, but it definitely deserves more recognition. His label Atlantic has claimed they’re using their resources to push Bad Azz back to his peak and beyond, and this song – with Boosie feeling blessed, rapping about being a good dad and Webbie stunting on his cynical elementary teachers – feels like a good start, especially since its using five-year-old verses.
The video finds Boosie and Webbie on the streets of New Orleans, wearing Evel Knevil and pajama pants, respectively. There are also scenes of people wearing their Trill Entertainment t-shirts all the way up to New York and out to Los Angeles, plus a couple fans in London, England. It’s all uphill from here, but Boosie knows he can get to the top even if he starts from the bottom. Watch the video below.
