It's all love, though
Given how close Boosie and Webbie used to be, it might be surprising to look over tracklists from a recently resurgent Boosie and not see the other rapper’s name anywhere. But Boosie explained their relationship in a new interview with VLADTV, and he wants people to know there are no problems between them.
Boosie began the conversation by talking about “Wipe Me Down” his hit with the other rapper, saying that he rarely performs the song unless he’s at a place with a ”radio crowd.”
“Numbers don’t lie,” he said of the huge hit. “I would say it’s my biggest record by far but people understand that 50 percent of my shows I don’t even do ‘Wipe Me Down.’”
“I only do ‘Wipe Me Down’ for the radio crowds. The Idahos, those crowds like that,” he continued. “I got a category of music and it’s not based on ‘Wipe Me Down.’”
When the questions turned to Webbie, Boosie said they’re apparent estrangement is entirely a factor of the industry and not anything personal.
“Right now, we on different grinds. People not trying to book us together right now. They’re booking me separately and I have to keep getting my money,” he said. “We still talk every day when we get a chance to.”
Boosie also said that he wants to get Webbie back into the studio.
“I gotta get him back focused and in the studio,” he said. “People want to hear music. And I’m going to put out music. I’m a workaholic.”
He also said that he catches heat for Webbie’s absence.
“I go to concerts and fans blame me,” he said. “Blame that promoter.”

His split from Webbie isn’t the only thing putting Boosie in the headlines. THe rapper has always been free with his words ― sometimes to the point that it gets him in trouble. He recently made a joke about getting his young son a hooker for his birthday and got dragged across the internet over it.
However, Boosie didn’t back down. The musician posted a long rant to Instagram about the controversy:
“Everybody in my Dm Sayin I’m a poor father etc. well you’re wrong about that .Im there for my kids from the youngest to the oldest. If you don’t think kids r sexually active at 14 you better wake up it’s 2017. 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.
“Most of you women in my Dm who r coming for me never had a father figure in your life, never had a bond with your dad or just don’t want to face reality that it’s 2017 n kids r sexually active at that age. Its up to us as parents to have sit downs with our teenagers to learn what they r going through in all aspects of there life.
“Most of you men coming at me don’t do s**t for your kids smh U will never understand a bond with a child because your child has no respect for you n your absence in they life n they don’t trust you at all. Your babymoma is they father, mother n best friend. While you typing words to me u should be writing an apology to your child for being U (a sperm donor). Y’all can never be the daddy I am.”
