Lil Boosie Responds To Being Called "The Tupac Of The South"

Lil Boosie says he and Tupac make different types of music, but understands the comparisons.

Since his release from prison, the talk surrounding Lil Boosie's upcoming tour and pending album release has been heavy.

Recently sitting down with 105.1's The Breakfast Club, the Louisiana native talked about being compared to Tupac. When asked about the comparison, particularly regarding the passion in each's music, Boosie said the two are different but he can understand it.

"I feel Tupac [is] Tupac and Boosie [is] Boosie," he said. "I think people do that because we both have heart-felt music that touch people heart, we both have similarities. I guess we both got in trouble too but I just feel it's real music and a pleasure to be given that credit but Tupac [is] Tupac and Boosie [is] Boosie."

Boosie was also asked about current Hip Hop and the changes he's seen in it since going to prison.

"It's trendy," he said. "If one person make a song it sounds like this so another artist is going to try to make a song like that. A lot of what I hear is a lot of the same music, not the same music but the same tone, the same flow and I just feel like the music I make put me in my own lane."

Interestingly, Boosie also mentioned that he doesn't listen to other people's music and regarded that when one does hear other's music, "you'll lean to making that sound."

Lil Boosie recently announced the release date for his next project. Touchdown 2 Cause Hell, is set to be released on July 15. He said it was a "classic" and that he didn't "wanna come home and play with the mixtape game."

  • Gucci The Realest

    Let me tell you this the only street nigga is Gucci Mane: * Jay-Z rapping since he was 15 years in the group High Potent. So when did he sold drugs? Between 10 and 15 years? Nobody in Brooklyn can confirm his crime stories. Did this nigga Jay not called the LAPD the get his masters back? * Drake i'm not gonna discuss this faggot. * Ice Cube was 14/15 years old when he was in the group C.I.A. Same story Lying-Z. * Nas Escobar stole his name from druglord Pablo Escobar but the only thing Nas Escobar ever sold in his life are records. * Dr. Dre the nigga who never make beats but uses ghostproducers. (Sam Sneed, Daz, warren G, Cold187um, The Glove, Mell Man etc.) Dr. Dre is as gangsta as there are ghosts. NOT! * 50 Cent sold drugs but on a small level. End of the crime stories. After that he snitched on Murda INC to get a restraining order. FACTS! * The Shame oops i mean The Game a former male stripper and now a attention whore. His own brother said that The Shame is a phony. So who do you you believe? * Flopp Deep oops i mean Mobb Deep some former arts of school studenst and balerina's. Nobody in Queens can confirm there crime stories. * Young Jeezy already exposed by Pimp C as a phony. FACTS! * T.I. he snithed to the feds. Illegal weapons charge thats 10/15 years jail. Come on. * Lil Wayne i aint gonna discuss this faggot. The list goes on....... they all OSG Original Studio Gangstas but NOT Gucci straight up FACTS about selling dope, killing and beating people.

    • HAHA, OMFG

      http://keepittrill.com/online/2012/02/bmfs-big-meech-defends-ti-snitched/ this is all about this. T.I. > Gucci, everytime, everywhere

    • REALLY?!

      Gucci ? This same Gucci ? He apologized T.I. two times, Gucci Mane can't fuck with central ATL because he's scaring this zone. Also he can't fuck wit westside zone. He only have respect in zone 6 cuz he's from zone 6. Gucci is stupid retard. Only kids and faggots calling Gucci OG, but he's fake. T.I., Jeezy > Gucci, ask people, listen what sayin' other rappers - Bun B, Scarface, Slim Thug, Lil Boosie and many more.

    This Nicca ain't tha '@Pac of his own bedroom'!!!! That is a SERIOUS INSULT to TUPAC SHAKUR, an icon & pillar in intelligent, heartfelt talent in Music, Acting & Social Consciousness! Boopsie is a talentless, idiotic deadbeat who got away with murdering several young black men! F*CK that!

    PAUL MEARA YOU'RE A COMPLETE IDIOT FOR EVEN POSTING SOME HILARIOUS NONSENSE LIKE THAT. LIL BOOSIE IS THE HOT GARBAGE OF THE SOUTH

    hey boosie keep dreaming fuck nigga

  • JD

    Boosie has nothing in common w/ Pac besides the fact that he raps. If Boosie died tomorrow 2 days later no one would be talking about it. Pac has been gone for almost 20 years and people still love him. The only reason most of the people clicked on this article is because it had Pac's name in it.

    "Tupac of the South" I thought that was Trick Daddy...

  • Anonymous

    I just want to know who called him that and why.

  • Me

    I just read the headlines and skipped the whole damn story just to say keep Pac out of this, no disrespect but Boosie is not the Pac of the South for 5 minutes and anyone who thinks that don't know the 2Pac or HipHop.. Boosie would have to read the same books Pac read for me to even consider thinking some dumb shi' like that..
