The idea of Boosie BadAzz stepping into the shoes of 2Pac is one that many might not have objected to. Considering how much the rapper admires the late icon, he could have kept his music alive and continued 2Pac’s legacy. However, this scenario never unfolded, and fans were unaware of this possibility.

Boosie BadAzz’s Love for 2Pac Shines Through

Despite being a rapper himself, Boosie doesn’t hesitate to show his respect for 2Pac. Although the legendary rapper is no longer with us, his influence lives on in the hearts of many, and Boosie has made this evident through his actions and words.

Last year, Boosie visited 2Pac’s murder site in Las Vegas. During his visit, he shared the environment of what was once a crime scene with his online fans.

Boosie also took the opportunity to educate T-Pain, who referred to 2Pac’s lyrics as insignificant compared to those of contemporary artists. The “Buy U a Drank” singer praised 2Pac but couldn’t agree that he would have been a worthy competitor.

In response, Boosie boldly disagreed with T-Pain, asserting that 2Pac’s lyrics would always hold a special place for him. The rapper debunked the notion that today’s musicians lack creativity and stated that their lyrics fail to leave a lasting impact.

Suge Knight and Death Row Records Wanted Boosie BadAzz as the Next 2Pac

Boosie revealed details about the possibility of being the next 2Pac during an interview with VladTV. The Baton Rouge artist mentioned meeting Suge Knight, who oversaw Death Row Records.

In his own words:

“Before I went to prison, Suge came down to Baton Rouge… he was talking about signing me. People were telling him that I was his next 2Pac.”

Boosie admitted that he had his eyes on the record label since the 90s, a label that was once home to 2Pac. According to a report from HipHopDX, Boosie remained silent about the other topics he discussed with Suge, who is currently incarcerated. However, he embraced his freedom from the gangster lifestyle and believed that his journey was guided by faith.

“Everything happens for a reason. When I’m down with you, I’m down with you. I would have been in conflicts with everyone Suge would have been in conflicts with,” he added.

Fortunately, Boosie is now a free man with a well-paying job and a family to support. During an interview with VladTV, the rapper proudly mentioned his substantial salary, emphasizing that it amounts to thousands of dollars.
