Boosie Badazz has been caught on the wrong side of the jail cell — and he’s about to be in more trouble thanks to the long arm of the law catching up to some social media posts.
According to federal court documents, which were obtained by TMZ on Friday (June 16), the Baton Rouge native earned himself an indictment thanks to some ill-advised Instagram Live posts.
In the posts, the “Wipe Me Down” rapper can be seen tucking a gun into the waistband of his jeans. (Federal law prohibits convicted felons from carrying and/or owning guns.) The posts, which were originally made last month, were essentially what got Boosie in trouble.

The “Wipe Me Down” rapper was taken into custody outside of the courtroom on Wednesday (June 14) as soon as his gun case hearing in San Diego, CA, wrapped. Once the state of California dropped the charges against the rapper, it left the door wide open for the feds to step in.
Boosie Badazz was reportedly filming a music video with local rapper Bully Three when he was originally arrested in San Diego back in early May. The Baton Rouge native was booked on a total of four charges including felon in possession of a firearm, concealed carry weapon in a vehicle, possession of ammunition by a prohibited person and unlisted owner of a registered firearm.
He was later released from jail on bond and went on to hit the stage in San Diego later that night – where the 40-year-old told fans to chant “fuck San Diego police” and put their middle fingers up. The rapper then snarled on the mic: “Suck my dick you bitches.”
In an interview a few weeks later, Boosie Badazz credited a San Diego cop with saving his life after he was suffering a sugar attack during the arrest.
“I want to give a shout-out to San Diego police, bruh, I was having a sugar attack when I got arrested,” Boosie said in an interview with The Breakfast Club. “Yeah, bro, bad one. When I was leaving the video shoot, my sugar was dropping. I can’t take insulin once it’s dropping I gotta eat or get some sugar.”
He continued: “On the way there, we got pulled over and my shit was dropping so bad I almost died. They had a white San Diego police [officer] and I told him… He said, ‘I was a paramedic.’ I told him, ‘Go in my car and get my sugar shit.’ Because he was a paramedic before. And dude saved me. Ran in my sack and squirted the shit in my mouth.”
Charlamagne then interrupted Boosie to hit him with several “pauses” before the Baton Rouge personality further detailed what happened to save his life on the sugar front.
“He broke the top off the insulin glucose and squirted it in my mouth and squirted another one in my shit,” Boosie clarified. “He got another glucose and he brought me back up, bro.”
