Webbie Speaks On Lil Boosie: “He Gonna Be Home Before You Know It”
On Lil Boosie’s Incarceration And Getting Boosie Back
“I’ve been living real life. I got so much going on. Like the way this music, it happened so quick. We would go to the studio and we out the studio. We run back down the street and do [what we do]. At the same time, we was rising quick. Everybody was coming; we ain’t even notice. That’s why when the situation struck—real life—we wasn’t even focused. We wasn’t really focused. [With Boosie in jail and Lil Phat dead] that would hold anybody back. One more time, rest in peace to my little brother Lil Phat. If a song has three verses, [Lil Phat and Lil Boosie are] two. Now, I got one verse. It’s just filling in the gaps and the whole thing.
“I pray man. I’ve been [telling] Boosie that he coming home. I think God put him in jail to save his life. That’s what I think. I think God put him in jail to save his life. It wouldn’t even feel right to say, ‘He would have been killed out here.’ It would have been worse. I think something bad would have been out here. Because the situation and everything that’s going on and all that. God run the world. He see the future.
“Being in jail, you ain’t never gonna understand the feeling. I can’t tell you. I ain’t in there. You never really [know], until it happen. Until you back. They had him on lockdown and all that crazy stuff, but he back. Cause I told him, I said, ‘Man, I’m gonna tell you I told you.’ Until he be right here and I said, ‘I told you.’ That’s when he gonna really feel like, ‘Man, that’s great.’
“[Last time I talked to him was] Saturday. Eight days ago. I don’t even worry about what we were talking about, it’s just regular stuff. Pictures. He always tell me, ‘Man, make sure you fuck two of them hoes for me.’ You heard me? But you know, shit nothing wrong. We both got people that we love. So for the wrong people who might read this, we just playing man. It’s just the lifestyle.
“[I’ve kept in touch with] his momma. She’s there. She’s spiritual. His brother, my brother. Like brothers, you know what I am saying? It’s really normal. We got the light. We are blessed to have the light. Shout out to [Boosie’s cousin] Donkey, man. That’s on some real street. It real life. Man, every song that I do is a tribute to [Boosie], because we on a mission. This shit is just a part of our life. That’s what I told him on the phone. ‘Man, we are gonna get past this and we are going to the Bahamas. We are going to be laughing, smoking a blunt.’ I’ma say, ‘I told you.’ This is a part of our life, but we got a long way to go in order to be where we want to be. Cause we ain’t doing this shit just to be at the end of the day—smoke a blunt and fuck a girl and wipe our shoes and shit. We are trying to have our grandkids [be comfortable]. That’s what we do. Our hunger. Fuck it man, I’m taking it. That’s how we is.
“Man, I need him. I need him. We need each other. That’s what we need. I know that when people say, ‘Man, they say he might get life. They say he might get the death [penalty.]’ I prayed for him. I talked to God, we got it right, bruh. When you come out, it ain’t about this. It’s about when you come out—be ready man. When you ask me what the things I tell him? Be ready. That’s the main thing every time. Stay ready. Stay ready. ‘Stay ready. I’ma be ready.’ I told him, man, when you come out, it’s over. You heard me? It’s over. I’m not talking about me, I’m not talking about him. As an individual, you as a person, when you straight, laid-back, eating some steaks in there, relax man. When you come, you gonna be somewhere and say, ‘Man, I am here. This is what we work for man. I am here.’ You gonna look to the side, ain’t nobody gonna be on sides. You just gonna be looking back because you gonna be on top and you look down.
“The real world in touch with everything we are doing. I thank God. You know, the crazy thing was—I was in Chicago the other day. ‘Man, Webbie and Boosie ain’t cool no more.’ Yeah, y’all are crazy. I can’t. Even if I didn’t want to. Even I get on the phone and say, ‘Man, I ain’t your brother anymore.’ You just can’t. You can’t. I mean, it’s just real.
“[Making Gangsta Muzik 2] is all that nigga talk about. That nigga want to do that. That nigga want to do that. Gangsta Muzik 2. You asking. People asking me that. I say most definitely. What I do, I don’t need to be, ‘Oh man, shit.’ That would probably fuck up the mindset of a nigga. What you gotta do is focus, set it back down, and just do you. Don’t fuck with [what] anybody think. That’s what got you here. Don’t [do] this kind of music for this kind of people. Do this or that from your heart. You heard me? I am a God person, even if you heard a lot of other stuff. I am everything in one. I am a White man. I am Black. I am everything. From the heart, I’ma keep coming. I’ma keep coming. I’ma keeping coming until I can’t.
“That’s my brother man. That’s my fam. We grew up like regular. If you never got into an argument or whatever the fuck, or whoever the fuck, or disagreed. That’s my trill, you heard me?
“Boo, he gonna be home before you know it. Everything good, bruh.”
