What’s better than a Grammy Award? Boosie BadAzz has one answer.
On Thursday (Feb. 13), the Baton Rouge rapper revealed to the world that he received a special gift in the mail and he couldn’t wait to show it off any longer. Taking to Instagram, Boosie excitedly shared that he was recently sent memorabilia from the personal collection of Pablo Escobar, the infamous Colombian drug lord of the notorious Medellín cartel.
The mementos not only came straight from Colombia, but directly from the Escobar family, which included a T-shirt bearing Pablo’s mugshot signed by his brother, Roberto, and Pablo's actual fingerprints.
“From Pablo Escobar's family baby. Pablo's real fingerprints on the thing. His brother Roberto signed it. This authentic man. Pablo fingerprints before he died,” Boosie shared in one clip. “The co-founder of the Medellín cartel sent me this. Medellín, n**ga! To Boosie. I keep his name alive...I'm lit the whole day. Can't nobody tell me s**t…I done sh*tted on the world. When keeping it real pays off... Nobody better not tell me sh*t.”
Boosie posted another separate minute-long clip of the souvenirs taken from close-up.
“This b**ch bigger than a Grammy!” Boosie boasted as he hovered the camera over the t-shirt. “You know why? Because everybody got Grammys. What m**herf**king rapper got this?” Elsewhere in the clip, Boosie compared the acknowledgement from Escobar’s family to that of music’s biggest accolade. “This a m**herf**king hood Grammy,” he declared. Along with the video, the “Wipe Me Down” rapper concluded in the post’s caption that he plans to visit Pablo’s mansion in Medellín this coming summer.
