Boosie Badazz raised a number of eyebrows after he fired a couple of shots at the late Nu$$ie in his latest track, “Get Ya Mind Right.” But despite fan criticism, the rapper doesn’t seem to have a single regret. In a new interview, Boosie reiterated what he stated on the single and why he’s sticking behind it.
“’Get Ya Mind Right,’ when you play that, it’s a club banger,” Boosie explained to XXL about making the track. “That’s like a ‘Set It Off’ record... I’m talking a lot of s**t, dropping a couple of names.” When asked why he dissed Nu$$ie by referring to him as a “p***y” on the song, the rapper gave a blunt answer.
“I was just saying how I felt,” Boosie stated. “Even though he’s gone, rest in peace, I still felt like he was a p***y for what he was doing as far as hating on me and what I had going. People taking it the wrong way.” He also justified what he said by claiming that Nu$$ie did a similar thing to him before he passed away. “When my boy was killed, he's the same rapper who made songs about my boy,” he continued. “We didn't take it any kind of way. I basically said what I said. I don't regret what I said at all. That's how I feel and that's how I feel always. If he was alive or anybody else, I would still say you're a p***y."
“Get Ya Mind Right” is coming from his forthcoming project BooPac, which is due out Dec. 15. Although the one track is about Nu$$ie, Boosie claims the album is more about Tupac and the similarities between the two in regards to status and legacy. "I want people to take the All Eyez on Me album and go take the BooPac CD and go listen to them," he said. "Listen to realness in my music before you judge me. I know they'll be a lot of 2Pac crazy heads that's going to deny this and get at me. But if you listen to it, if you go through it song for song, I would like your opinion then on the realness to it."
