"Get him some water!"
Boosie’s wild week just got even wilder. After stirring up a crazy amount of controversy with a questionable Instagram post where he said he was buying his 14-year-old son a blowjob for his bday, the rapper is back in the news again because he casually watched his friend roll around on the ground engulfed in flames.
You read that right. This is really a video where the camera pans onto a grown man engulfed in flames while Boosie’s posse shouts advice on how to not die in a fire. And Boosie takes a few steps back and watches with the rest of them.
It’s so insane that I could see it being a bit on a late night sketch show like Loiter Squad or Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job! The quick shift between “interview with a famous rap star” and “cinema verite of a man trying to put out his clothes with the help of his friends” could easily slot into a bit from one of Saturday Night Live‘s more odd writers. Kyle Mooney would love this… Except it’s absolutely real.
The video starts with Boosie describing how he’s trying to help a friend out and get him a lawyer, but the rapper’s story is interrupted by shouting. Boosie turns his head and takes several steps back. The camera man eventually follows his gaze as somebody shouts a bit of helpful narration.
“This n**** on fire,” somebody yells.
“Put him out! Put him out!” is the response.
A few members of the crew slap at the flames and one even attempts to pull his shirt off but finds out that it’s too hot to grab. A second attempt gets his shirt off but the seat of his pants remains aflame.
Meanwhile, other people yell “Stop, drop and roll” and “Go in the ditch!” to try and get the flaming man back to his normal, non-engulfed life. At one point the man clearly gives up on trying to get the flames off of himself, laying still as others try and put him out but by the end of the clip things seem to be heading toward being under control.
Watch The Clip
Boosie has not replied to the viral video yet but maybe he’ll be forced to discuss it if it blows up the way other Boosie news has.
The rapper had to issue a retraction earlier this week when fans were disgusted by the aforementioned blowjob post. He clarified that he was joking but added that if his son was sexually active he wouldn’t be opposed to it. He alsp posted a lengthy Instagram rebuttal to people who accused him of being a bad father, explaining that he is very open with his children about the idea of sex and that he does everything in his power to raise them in a way that he sees as correct.
“If you don’t think kids r sexually active at 14 you better wake up it’s 2017,” he wrote. “Where I’m from girls were pregnant at 13 and 14 on the regular. They had no daddy to talk to them about what’s in boys ,the streets r STDs etc. I have a relationship where I can talk to my teenage kids about anything.”
