This week, Boosie Badazz is in a good mood because his long-awaited album Touchdown 2 Cause Hell is finally out. He continued his promo run with an appearance on The Breakfast Club. During their chat, Boosie broke down his album track-by-track and also talked about collaborating with different artists, making an impact with his apology record “I’m Sorry” and if he is still religious. Read some excerpts below and watch the full interview here.
On “Hands Up”: I think it was more of a less direct than “F**k the Police.” “F**k the Police” was all over. F everybody. All the police. But now, it’s basically focused on the ones who are doing dirty. I got a cousin on my daddy’s side, he a police. You know, he ain’t no bad dude. He ain’t no hater. He ain’t no racist. He ain’t nothing like that. So basically, it’s just for those who committing the crimes and got that in their heart. Got that in their heart and they’re gonna do it again.
On working with other artists: A lot of people wanted to get on this album. A lot of people wanted to collaborate with me. And I wanted to collaborate with a lot of people. By them getting on my album, you gonna see me on a lot of albums also. It’s not gonna stop here. I’m ready to drop another album in seven or eight months. I’m ready right now.
On “I’m Sorry”: I felt like I needed to apologize because I’ve been messing up so damn long. Especially with my mom — I’ve been getting in and out of stuff for a long time as far as putting my momma through stuff. I put my momma through a lot. I put my family through a lot. I put a lot of people through a lot by being through that situation, so I had to make a record like that. I said I wanted it to be a big record where people be like, "Damn, he touched me with that record."
On if he goes to church now: Nah, I ain’t really been going. But by me being in prison, like, I’m closer to God. Some people can go to church and not even be close to God. I’m closer to God now; I go to church when I’m talking to them.
