Conviction, Cheating Brother, Cancer
Boosie Badazz, the album For My Thugz hitmaker, had a promising career ahead of him as a rapper when in 2009 he was arrested for possession of marijuana and guns.
Consequently, he pleaded guilty to the charges of drugs laundering and served his time in jail from 2009 to 2014.
But, his stay in jail transformed his career, as he composed numerous compositions behind bars. In January 2014, while still in prison, he was quoted saying:
I have about 500 songs at the moment. I feel that I'm making the best music I've ever made. The more I go through in life the better my music gets and it's been crazy the last three years. I keep my music heartfelt and stick to making real music. I wouldn't even say it's hip-hop music. My music is 'reality rap'. Hip-hop music can make you dance and bob your head, but it can't make you cry or touch your heart like reality rap.
He was released early on 5 March 2014, and immediately after his release, he changed his stage name from Lil Boosie to Boosie Badazz. Unfortunately, immediately after his release, Boosie was involved in another controversy. He claimed his bank account was hacked and about half a million dollars was stolen from him.
The police tracked down the perpetrator, who was none other than Boosie's brother, Taquari Hatch. The case was resolved without charges being pressed. Just when everything was getting normal, Boosie announced on one his 2015 Instagram posts that he had been diagnosed with kidney cancer.
After a year-long battle with cancer, numerous chemotherapy, a nephrectomy, and many medications, Boosie revealed that he was free from disease.
Since then, the record label Bad Azz Music Syndicate founder has been busy touring to different places. In 2016, he also co-created the album, Penitentiary Chances with rapper C-Murder.
