I’m feeling good, man. I’m just riding. I just got me the ’06 Bent. I’m smoking that purple and feeling good.
Your album Bad Azz is out. How are you feeling about the album?
I’m feeling great about that. It’s 18 tracks. Pimp C and Yung Joc are on the album. I’m feeling good about that album. I’m ready to be looked at as a platinum artist.
Are fans ready for Lil’ Boosie?
Fans are overready. They’ve been waiting for a couple of years. They’ve been patiently waiting.
You’ve released a lot of underground albums. How did those prepare you for Bad Azz?
Everything happens for a reason. It prepared me. It just made me hungrier and hungrier. I got the streets and it really prepared me for a lot of these DJ’s and doing all my drops and all that. It just gave me some spotlight.
Did you approach Bad Azz from a different perspective than your street records?
It’s different because I got Asylum behind me and I got the TV. It’s different all across the board.
How would you describe Bad Azz?
I’m hitting it from all angles. I got party music. I got slow music. I got women music. I got family music. I’m versatile. I do this shit.
How did you first link up with Pimp C?
C-Loc was cool with Pimp C. They took me straight to Pimp. Me and Pimp have been linked tight since. That’s family.
You also have a good relationship with B.G. and you’re from Baton Rouge. Why did you sign to Pimp C instead of Cash Money?
I felt like Cash Money already had artists. I’m the main man on this ship. I had to look out for me.
What are you learning working with Pimp C?
He’s motivating me. Even when I’m down, he motivates me and he knows about the game.
Did Pimp give you full creative control on Bad Azz?
Yeah. He gave me full creative control.
You’ve also been on Roy Jones Jr.’s compilation. What’s your relationship with him today?
It’s cool. If I see Roy Jones, I’ll holler at him right now. People think there’s beef with us, but it’s cool. If he had a fight, I would be there. I made a business move and it wasn’t nothing major like everyone said.
Have you ever seen his cockfights?
No, I never saw them. I saw them on the DVD but I never saw them in real life.
Are you spending most of your time in Baton Rouge or Houston right now?
I’m on the road. I’m flying from city to city doing shows. There’s been a lot of promo shows. Other days, I’m at home and chilling. Other days, I’m on the road.
Are you and Webbie going to do another project together?
Yeah. We’re going to do Gangsta Muzik 2 after my album.
Did things change between you and Webbie after his song “Like Dat” blew up?
It didn’t really change. It was just more shows for Webbie by himself than us together. People always put me and him together, so whenever he progresses, I progress.
How did you feel about the reopening of the Superdome and what that meant to New Orleans?
Anything that lifts New Orleans’ spirit up, I’m with it. There are still a lot of people without their houses. But instead of talking about Reggie Bush they need to be talking about George Bush. They’re putting people in trailers for six months and then kicking them out. That ain’t right.
What do you have to do to make sure Bad Azz is successful?
I have to stay giving these DJ’s what they want and I just have to stay all the way dedicated. That’s how I’m going to make it.
What do you want to say to everybody?
If you’re not a fan of Lil’ Boosie, you need to check me out. You need to check my background out and check out my music. Give me three minutes out of your day. Just two minutes. I promise you won’t take it out.
