Rapper who bragged about hiring prostitute to service underaged son thinks Lil Nas X is a negative influence on children

Rapper Boosie Badazz has a hypocritical opinion about negative influences on children.

When it comes to LGBTQ people and our supposed negative effect on children, so many hypocrites come out of the woodwork spewing all sorts of false claims of concern. More often than not, they need to check themselves. Because the internet never forgets and frankly neither do I.

Case in point is the controversy which recently erupted between openly gay rapper Lil Nas X and another rapper by the name of DaBaby.  A few months ago, DaBaby  got into serious trouble because of a homophobic rant he made against Lil Nas. He was condemned for it by many celebrities and was also dropped as a performer by many festivals and events.

But he has his defenders, such as another rapper by the name of Boosie Badazz. Boosie, who once claimed that a "forceful media campaign" was turning people gay, has been defending DaBaby since the beginning of the situation. However his defense hasn't exactly been helping matters because his comments came off as homophobic as DaBaby's.

Nevertheless, on Monday he had an interview on the radio show The Breakfast Club, where he sparred with the show's host Charlemagne tha God  and several others about his comments.:

“I just be feeling like sometimes I gotta speak up because, as far as straight people in the world, you don’t have any opinion,” he said, arguing that straight people have less of a voice than those in the LGBTQ+ community. Boosie went on to say that straight men cannot admit to liking women without it sounding “vulgar,” adding, “You can’t brag on really smashing or your sexuality anymore.”

Boosie got push back by Charlemagne and the other hosts who called out how some areas of rap music embrace violence, drugs, and vulgarity against women. Charlemagne also pointed out past rants Boosie made against Lil Nas X:

Charlamagne was addressing the multiple homophobic comments Boosie made earlier this summer. In the first rant, Boosie hit at Nas X for saying that he wanted to dance naked for charity, calling it “disrespect in front of boys who tryna be straight.”  

“If I’m at an awards [show] and he go up there naked, I’ma drag his ass offstage and beat his ass,” he added. “You let a n**** dance naked in front your children, you a motherfuckin’ crazy motherfucker—or you like dick too.” “It’s sad how y’all tryna force this gay stuff on the world,” 

Boosie said a week later. “It’s sad how y’all tryna ban artists. Y’all sad, bro, it’s sad, bro. In 10 years, it ain’t gonna be normal for a kid to be straight. It’s sad, bro. Y’all tryna force it on these kids, bro. Pushing it on the artists, pushing it on all the biggest artists. You know why? Cause’ the kids love those artists. You attacking these kids.”

Boosie attempted to defend those comments by playing the  "I'm only thinking about the children" card:

During Monday’s episode, Boosie attempted to defend his comments, saying that he was disturbed that children would see Nas X dance naked on TV. “I really get offended when it was like, he was saying he would go up there and perform naked in front all this shit, all the people,” Boosie said. “And I was like, ‘Damn.’ All these straight people in the world. All these millions of kids gon’ watch this and no straight rapper ain’t gon’ say, ‘Nah, n****. You ain’t…N****, we don’t want you on that TV. Nobodies not gon’…'” 

When Boosie was challenged about that particular comment, he claimed that parents attempting to raise "strong black men" would be against Lil Nas X.

Charlemagne da God and the other hosts continued to call Boosie out, but I am not aware if they brought a certain hypocrisy with his statements in relation to an incident last year involving his son and nephew. 

In May of last year, Boosie got into trouble because he bragged during an Instagram session of hiring a prostitute to services his son and nephew when they were 12 and 13. Supposedly, this is what he said at the time (you can see the video of him admitting it here):

“I’m training these boys right,” Badazz said. “Ask any of my nephews, ask any of them, ask my son. Yeah, when they was 12, 13, they got head. Yeah, that’s how it’s supposed to be. Hell yeah, I got my f*cking son d*ck sucked.”

So according to Boosie, seeing Lil Nas X possibly dancing naked would damage the psyches of young black males, but hiring prostitutes for them when they are underaged would have the opposite effect.

Yeah. Okay.

Ultimately, this situation is not about Lil Nas X possibly dancing naked any more than its about supposedly protecting the strength of black males. It sounds to me like Boosie is attempting to project some toxic masculinity as sort of a panacea for black males. It's that sort of bullshit thinking which has gone so far to damage black men - particularly gay black men like myself - for as long as I can remember. This idea that to be "men," we have to take up some visage of a 'Stepford Mandingo' if you will - not heart, no soul, no emotions. Only a cheap idea of uber-masculinity which demands that we be  constantly hard in spirit and apparently in the bedroom. And God forbid anything challenges that image, particularly gay black men.  

Far be it from me to tell Boosie Badazz how to raise his children. That's not my right. But I will tell him to raise his children and only his children because no one needs his opinions on how to raise strong black men.
