Louisiana rapper Webbie may be known to many as the artist behind the trio of Savage Life albums and singles including “Give Me That” and “This Is What I Do,” but according to the emcee he may soon be known for his sermons.
While appearing on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club this week, Webbie discussed a variety of topics and even referred to himself as a preacher halfway through the interview. He also went on to reveal that he’s already appeared in front of two churches and although he may not be a certified preacher, he still considers himself one.
“I think I’m a preacher man. I talked in front of two churches,” Webbie disclosed. “What they give you to certify a preacher? Well, look here, I ain’t go to no school and I’m a preacher. Certified.”
On top of speaking in front of two separate churches, Webbie also provided words of encouragement to incarcerated rapper Lil Boosie. According to Webbie, he once spoke to Boosie about God’s will and stated that being in prison may have protected the rapper against something far worse.
“God good man. God real,” said Webbie. “Like back to my brother, Lil Boosie, it’s crazy and you’ll never know unless you the person, but I told him. I said it, I said ‘Man, you gon’ be straight.’ I said ‘God put you in there for a reason. To protect you bruh. Cause he’s probably saying you would’ve got killed or something or something else was gon’ happen. You gon’ be straight.’”
Despite Webbie’s newfound interest, over the past couple of years the rapper has found himself in the middle of a handful of legal maladies. Just last year Webbie was accused of kicking a woman down a flight of stairs although the incident was later labeled “a misunderstanding."
