"Shout out to Marlo Mike"

Oh, so the 2nd rapper on Back In The Day is Money Bags from Double Trouble then? I could never quite work out who he was.

Lil' Boosie ft. Quick & Money Bags - Brothers Keeper (2010)



How did I previously miss this? The best song I've heard all week (though I've yet to listen to $tarlito's new @ War With Myself mixtape which dropped last night and features a song called Lil' Boosie Out on it) and it's great to hear some fresh Bad Azz, but this video is also pretty fascinating since it includes 2 key players in Boosie's murder trial in Michael "Marlo Mike" Louding, the kid alleged to have killed the rapper Nu$$ie for Boosie who then implicated him in that murder and the murder of some dude called Terry Boyd after getting bagged for another 4 murders, and Darryl “Bleek” Milton (mostly known for being the guy riding the bike with Boosie in the basket from the Top To The Bottom video), Boosie's cousin and best friend who the Marlo Mike kid also murdered because, well, if you read into it a little deeper, this whole sordid affair is way more entangled and complicated than the standard headline of Boosie merely putting a hit out on Nu$$ie because Nu$$ie was rumoured to have killed the Ivy "Lil' Ivy" Smith rapper Boosie always mentions in his rhymes (and then using a sample of him on his album intro) before adopting the name Nu$$ie Bad Azz and talking sideways about Boosie in videos like this.

I mean, sure, Heavy metal might have had Vince Neil from Motley Crue killing that dude from from Hanoi Rocks when he was driving drunk in the 80s and Scandinavian black metallers slaughtering each other in the 90s, but since Wes Borland from Limp Bizkit ain't never catch no bodies the genre really needs to step its game up nowadays if it wants to be considered as dangerous a career option as rap again. Anyway, this video may possibly end up inadvertently pwning Boosie in his trial because the D.A of Louisiana are already using the Marlo Mike kid's appearances in other Boosie videos and the "Marlo Mike in the backstreet begging for a body" line from Lime Life as evidence in their case against him. Let's hope Beanie Sigel or Billy Danze never go on trial for murder or the D.A will have an absolute field day with their respective lyrics.

Didn't the guys who run Trill Ent face a murder charge?

I like Lil B but it's nice to hear someone rapping over "ellen degeneres" properly.

I hadn't, David, but it's great.

They did/still are, James.

This guy claims to be "from right up the road" and seems to know a lot about the Nussie/Boosie/Trill Ent situation;

Thanks. I've read a few of his responses on that site, but not seen them all before.

I can't believe I was even hating on Boosie's Joe Pasquale swag for even a micro-second. I was blind, but now I see.

That Boosie collection has been rocking my headphones solidly for a while now. Paint me obsessed.

My Chigga then.

I just KNEW you'd be partial to Boosie's specific brand of emotional, nasal thuggin'.
