Boosie has some experience in the acting arena, having cut his teeth starring in a handful of underground, straight-to-bootleg films, including Gangsta Musik, Last Dayz and Ghetto Stories: The Movie, where he played Marcus Hatch, a small-time drug dealer who wages war against a local rival played by Webbie.
