The war is over
Baton Rouge’s two most-famous rappers have finally squashed their beef. Kevin Gates and Boosie are on good terms for the first time this decade and it’s all thanks to Boosie looking to throw a concert.
Boosie said he called up Gates and is hoping to clear everything so that the rapper can play his Boosie Bash concert.
“Talked to Gates earlier,” Boosie says. “Trying to get that boy to come to that Boosie Bash. Tryin’ to pull it off for him. Gotta let the man travel. Man gotta pay his taxes.”
Kevin Gates and Boosie have had bad blood since 2009 when it was rumored that Boosie was involved with the death of Gates’ affiliate Nussie. Boosie was found not guilty but the bad vibes remained. Both rappers and their crews got into it years later at Louisville’s Derby Takeover Pt. 2.
It could be that Boosie is tired of having so many enemies. He seems to make new ones every time he opens his mouth. All of his Instagram posts seem to carry the innate ability to start s**t. His retrograde attitudes are typically spread quickly for the backlash to begin nearly instantaneously.
Take, for example, his recent homophobic post about the city of Atlanta.
“Pray for Atlanta. It’s flooded with down low n**gas,” the photo he posted read.
The caption went into further detail, really wedging Boosie’s foot in his mouth. “National guard is needed asaps**t crazy frfr all y’all trying to move to the Atl smh f**king dat city up more n more frfr then all y’all infected with HIV want to move to the A feeling they can start over n a place don’t nobody know them at smh sad s/o to the real n**gas I f**k with n the Atl ,” he wrote.
Commenters on the post took him to task over the words and let him know that he was protesting too much.
“I’’ll be glad when you finally address the man who molested you as a child,” wrote @thereal_don_dada. “Lol you’re worried more about DL n**gas and gay men than women and actual gay men are worried about them. The saying goes ‘you hate what you are’. Just never seen a straight man talk more about gay n*ggas than p**sy.”
“Your post about gay people make you mad suspect,” added @jarrodgillespie. “Traits of a dl man.”
A New Leaf
It’s also possible that Gates is trying to live a more positive life following his release from jail. The rapper was unexpectedly sideswiped by another arrest warrant the day he was supposed to be released from jail, but recently got out on that charge and seems glad to be back at it.
He definitely seemed to be on a more positive path in this letter he released while still serving.
“Dear Loyal Family, Disallow yourselves to be troubled in my time of absence. All of the great ones who came before and will come after me: Have had to go through this.
By this I’m speaking in reference to hardship. A great a person is measured by all of the great tests they can undergo and still remain true to who they are. With that being said ‘I’m Him.’ I love you all. In closing, I remain the same.”
