Martorial elegance : the Boosie edition # 2

Lil' Boosie - Mind Of A Maniac (2009)



Blatantly swaggerjacked from RealN*ggaTumblr (again), but these FREE BOOSIE beanies are even better than those Waka Flocka Flame Halloween masks because you can actually wear this when you're out picking up your sunday shopping in M&S without security guards thinking you're trying to rob the place :





Now that's Streetwear and they've apparently used a specially treated blend of Biella Yarn Merino wool which'll turn whatever hairstyle you sport into Boosie's hallmark fade within minutes everytime you wear it. Available to pre-order now from IMNOTATOY.

On the subject of Boosie Bad Azz, is there any other song which displays the confusing contradictions of rap music in all their glory quite like Fuck The Police does :

"Wonder why I look at your ass undereye
I get a billion I'ma hit you bitches from the sky.."


Lil' Boosie ft. Webbie - Fuck The Police (2009)



Complaining about police harrassment while bragging about having guns in high school, running various illegal contrabands, and keeping hundreds of thousands of dollars of untaxed money in your crib is some real which-came-first-the-chicken-or-the-egg? type shit, huh? This is one of the best songs of Boosie's apogee as a solo rapper, though, because the menacing tone of his voice gives me the chills like the creepy gypsy 'yatch in the opening segment of At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul does, and the combination of that harpsichord melody with those mushroom clouds of squelchy bass is just too immaculate. If we can't free Boosie on the grounds of him releasing tons of great music or allow him recording equipment in his jailcell, can't we just try and get him off by framing some tedious hack like Freddie Gibbs for killing that Nu$$ie dude instead?

im not sure who could do it (maybe fatlace) but a run down of the most ridiculous rap promo merchandise gotten while workin at rap mags/labels etc would make for a good post

Definately.

Plus Feel Lucky with Max Minelli off Youngest Of Da Camp is my shit too.

yeah max is great, baton rouge is kinda like the vallejo of the south wth the amounta talent for such a small place.

he has this one great song that is the only example of the whole "whoa/ha" repition thing that doesnt manage to bore/annoy the fuck out me.
