Boosie Badazz and Kevin Gates Squash Beef
Any ill feelings between Boosie Badazz and Kevin Gates have officially been put to rest, as the two have finally squashed their beef. After their entourages came to blows in a scuffle back in 2016, Boosie confirms on Instagram that there is no more bad blood between himself and the New Orleans native.
Posting a new video to his page, the Baton Rouge rapper says that he has been speaking to Gates about getting him to perform at the Inaugural Boosie Bash in Louisiana on March 10. Badazz says that he recently had a phone conversation with the "2 Phones" rapper, and is hoping that he can get cleared for travel in time for the special event.
“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.”
The upcoming concert has a star-studded artist roster including YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Blac Youngsta, and YFN Lucci so far. Gates would require permission from a judge in order to travel, as he was released from prison earlier this month. He served nine months of a 30-month sentence for a weapons-related warrant and is now under mandatory supervision.
If you recall, Boosie and Gates' teams were involved in an altercation at the Derby Takeover Pt. 2 event in Louisville back in 2016. The tension between them also dates all the way back to 2009 after Gates’ affiliate Nussie was murdered. Someone claimed that Boosie ordered a hit on Nussie but was later found not guilty in the case.
