Torrence Hatch, better known as Boosie Badazz, was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on November 2, 1982. Lil Boosie grew up in an incredibly unsafe neighborhood. The neighborhood was usually too dangerous for the local police to enter.
After his father was killed, Boosie was raised without a parent. When Boosie was just 14 years old, he started rapping as an outlet for the daily violence he witnessed and the instability of his upbringing.
Rapper C-Loc from Baton Rouge was exposed to Lil’ Boosie by his cousin Young Dee in the late 1990s. He joined the group Concentration Camp in 1998 as the youngest member and was mentored by MD, Young Bleed, and C-Loc.
Young Bleed, C-Loc, Happy Perez, Boo, Max Minelli, J-Von, Lee Tyme, and Lucky Knuckles made comprised the group. He ultimately made his debut on Concentration Camp’s third studio album Camp III, Thug Brothas in 2000 and C-fifth Loc’s album, “It’s A Gamble,” under his previous identity Boosie.
Lil Boosie gained prominence among the group as a result of Young Bleed’s departure from the Camp. He was one of the “faces” of the Camp, along with C-Loc and Max Minelli. He released his debut album, Youngest of da Camp when he was just 17 years old.
Happy Perez produced the record, which also included C-Loc, Max Minelli, and Donkey. He joined Trill Entertainment in 2001, which was supported by its late CEO, Pimp C of UGK.
Soon later, in 2002, Trill went under the alias Lil Boosie and independently released the album For My Thugz. He also released his debut mixtape, Boosie 2002 (Advance), which included Pimp C and Young Bleed. The album featured Pimp C, Young Bleed, and Webbie.
“Youngest Of Da Camp,” his debut album from 2000, peaked at #96 on the Billboard R&B charts. “For My Thugz,” his second album, came out in 2002. His third album, “Bad Azz,” debuted at the top of the Billboard rap charts in 2006.
Lil Boosie established his own record company, Bad Azz Entertainment, in 2008. After being detained on drug-related charges, he released his fourth album, “Incarcerated,” from behind bars. Boosie completed both his GED and jail terms.
He was freed at the beginning of March 2014. He began using the stage name Boosie Badazz in the same year. He released his debut album, “Touch Down 2 Cause Hell,” in 2015 under his new moniker.
The album peaked at number two on the US R&B and Rap charts and number three on the Billboard 200 chart. In addition to the album “In House,” which was released in 2020, he also released the album “BooPac” in 2017.
Boosie has eight kids with six different mothers. Together with his longtime girlfriend Walnita Decuir, he has three kids. In 2010, Walnita was detained for attempting to sneak Boosie drugs into a correctional facility.
Boosie stated in December 2020 that he intended to sue Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, for $20 million over the rapper’s expulsion from Instagram.
Boosie claimed being banned from IG dried up many business prospects and could have cost him $20 million in lost potential agreements in an interview with VladTV. He hadn’t really filed the complaint when he made the allegation, so it wasn’t apparent if he was being serious.
Boosie has been detained and imprisoned several times. He was charged with first-degree murder and drug possession with the intent to distribute in 2010. Later, prosecutors would say that they thought Boosie might have been connected to “at least five more homicides.
In the end, the jury found him guilty of the drug charges but not guilty of the murder accusation. He received an eight-year state jail term.
Bad Azz Music Syndicate
Boosie Badazz and Taquari “TQ” Hatch created the record company known as the Bad Azz Music Syndicate. Due to the numerous ineligible artists and associates who started representing “Bad Azz Ent” without Boosie’s knowledge while he was incarcerated, TQ recommended rebranding Bad Azz Entertainment.
TQ believed that it would be necessary to re-establish the brand as a music organization in order to sign artists who were more diversified and even worldwide in the future.
Boosie received harsh criticism in February 2020 for his insulting remarks regarding Dwyane Wade’s 12-year-old daughter, who had come out as transgender.
In a now-deleted Instagram video from May 2020, Boosie allegedly boasted about hiring an adult lady to perform a sex act on his teenage nephew.
Boosie faced criticism once more in October 2021 after tweeting an anti-gay tirade directed at Lil Nas X. The Tweet influenced Lil Nas X to commit suicide.
Boosie Badazz’s Net Worth
American rapper Boosie Badazz, popularly known as Lil Boosie, has an estimated $800,000 in wealth. Prior to going solo, he was a founding member of the band Concentration Camp.
His hit singles include “Zoom,” which features Yung Joc, “Wipe Me Down,” “Better Believe It,” which features Webbie and Young Jeezy, and “Show Da World”. He was a part of Lil Phat’s record “Independent,” which peaked at number one on the US Rap chart.
Rapper Boosie Badazz from Louisiana has once more shared his opinions on R. Kelly and the sexual assault claims made against him. Since the 1990s, the disgraced singer has been charged with sex trafficking, child pornography, and sexual abuse.
Ironically, despite all of this, her career has remained somewhat successful. Despite the obvious evidence and firsthand accounts of exploitation from alleged victims, ardent fans, musical peers, and others have maintained R. Kelly’s innocence.
Kelly has since been found guilty of sex trafficking in New York and given a 30-year jail sentence as a result of additional investigation and trial testimony.
As per usual, Boosie expresses his thoughts exactly and isn’t too bothered by the criticism he has received for his fast commentary.
Social media users responded to his thoughts on resentencing Kelly and putting the responsibility on the victims’ parents in the same manner as they always do.
