Southern rapper Jeezy has reflected on Lil Boosie's current four-year jail sentence and said the
incarcerated emcee was on top of the music game before getting placed
"I sit back and I just think, that the lil' homie [Lil' Boosie] is sitting there in a cell but he was on top of the world," Jeezy said in an interview. "In his lil' world in Lousiana he was that
n*gga. I used to tell him all the time your moves are big! And I done
went down there and hung out with him in the in
the streets and everything, I done been in his hood and everything, so
to me, it's a sad thing to see...So you know, it just come with the
territory, man, but it's just hard, dog, I used to hear cats like 8Ball
& MJG, Pac, all of them rap about what it used to be like
[when you get successful] and say what the h*ll? It can't be that bad.
Oh, it is. I see it now...If you ever listen to everybody's second or
third albums, it's pretty much the same story: 'these n*ggas tripping.'
I'm the same n*gga. I don't think you change, I just think the things
around you change." (VIBE)
