REVIEW: Lil Boosie, Super Bad:The Return of Boosie Bad Azz

Lil Boosie
Super Bad: The Return of Boosie Bad Azz
Trill Ent/Asylum

Beats: XL
Lyrics: L
Originality: L

Based on his recent legal troubles (battery and bribery charges, marijuana and weapons possession, and a possible murder plot), it’s clear to see why Lil Boosie is known as a Bad Azz. Fortunately, when it comes to the Baton Rouge rapper’s music it’s all good. His latest disc, Super Bad: The Return of Boosie Bad Azz, displays the best of both worlds.

Boosie teams up with Lil’ Phat and Lil’ Trill for the Runners-produced “My Avenue” and breaks down the gruesome realities of the streets on the pessimistic “No Mercy.” Flanked by Young Jeezy and Webbie on the hypnotic “Better Believe It,” the cocky MC boasts, “Ladies and gentlemen it’s Boosie Boo/King of Louisiana, I been the truth/If you don’t know, better ask somebody/I am the show and the after party.”

Boosie balances out his bravado with a few rare moments of introspection and affection. The guitar-laced “Pain” finds Boo opening up about the loss of his father, before venting about the downsides of fame on the paranoid “Mind of a Maniac.” On the flipside, Boosie takes a moment to entice the ladies with the Bobby V-guested “Who Can Love U” and his Trina duet “Miss Kissin’ On You.” Fans of the misogynistic mic wielder’s past hits need not fret about their hero going soft as he makes it clear that his money over hoes manifesto is still intact on the aptly titled “I’m a Dog.”

Aside from a few repetitive hooks (“Lawd Have Mercy” and “Levi’s”) and played out floss and flare (“Bank Roll” and “Crayola”), Boosie serves up a passionate collection of trill tracks. It’s a welcome return to form for the Bad Azz that winds up being super good. —Anslem Samuel

    Listen here you dam kids. Do you won’t to be dum like Boosie and C-Murder. State of Lousiana Rappers! I got family out that way. I like the State a whole lot. You Rap Fuckers got to grow up and stop trying to prove something. That shit get you nothing. I hope Police get more violent with ya’ll. I need these streets to be clean again. Like it was in old days.

  • Justice4All

    I lived in Baton Rouge, so I’m no “hating”-I’m just saying this dude is GABAGE. Str8 up, no chase. Dude is not even on the beat half the time, his lyrics are….well not really lyrics, there is no song writing here. Just a bunch of frontin’. Dude need to reflect while he on the rock and come back and do something different.

    Scotlandville!

  • Chris Mac

    Nothin compared to his last effort, there is no comparission but ur right he makes it for the hood.

  • http://MYSPACE HELTAH SIN SAY

    Return or what? just another bullshit ass rapper. Why is it that a group like slaughterhouse can form with memebers of different backrounds? you know whats funny is that when a supergroup is made there is never a dude from the south. I mean yea you could put a dude like big boi, dre, luda, but not those swapmeet south rappers. No one wants to include a stupid ass rapper like boosie because hes fucken booosie…..
    hey boosie the day of cheap no skill and grimy south accent is over baby!! whatcha goin to do now my dude, the era of real rap is makng a comeback and theres no room for you or your bullshit ass homies. ha ha ha ha ha
