Boosie Badazz is gearing up for what he’s predicting to be the Best Album of 2023, and the project’s first offering is just around the corner.
On Friday (February 10), the Baton Rouge rapper revealed the cover art for both the album and its lead single on Twitter. While the project will arrive on March 6, Boosie’s “Lines for Valentines” single will appropriately arrive on Tuesday (February 14).
The cover art reflects the theme with a heart-shaped bed in a motel set in dim red lighting, while the album’s cover art features a number of red roses.
Check out Boosie’s announcements below:
Last month, Boosie made a public request to both Diddy and Yung Miami for a music video he was working on – which could possibly be a part of the Best Album of 2023.
Boosie, who explained he had lost Puff’s phone number and was mistakenly calling Pleasure P from Pretty Ricky while trying to get in touch with him, even offered the couple a cut of the profits as a financial incentive
“Diddy, I need you to hit me up, bro. I can’t find your number in my new phone,” he said. “I got this record named ‘Diddy & Caresha,’ and I need y’all to shoot the video for it. I’m not in the video at all.”
He continued: “I just need y’all to shoot some shit on a yacht or whatever, y’all lifestyle. I’ma send a camera crew, and I’ma give you 20 percent of the record. I know you about your business. I thought about it, and y’all gotta shoot this muthafucka. Get at me, man
In the next slide, Boosie previewed the track in question, which finds him floating over a smooth R&B-tinged beat and telling his woman to dance with him on the chorus.
Neither the Bad Boy mogul nor the City Girls rapper got back to Boosie, but there’s always next time.
In addition to music, Boosie Badazz has also been hard at work trying to put together a tour that initially started out as a joke.
Seemingly adamant about making Young Scooter’s proposed ‘Rat Tour’ come to life, Boosie’s been taking the steps to make the idea become a reality. On Saturday (February 4), the Baton Rouge native revealed he has a vendor who’s ready and willing to not only supply cheese and merchandise for the tour – but also put up money to actually book artists for it
“I GOT SOMEBODY THAT WANTS TO SUPPLY THE CHEESE FOR THE RAT TOUR N BOOK THE TOUR!” Boosie wrote. “HE NEEDS TO KNOW ALL THE RAPPER/RATS FAVORITE CHESSE [sic]! HE ALSO HAS RAT MERCH READY N HE WILL GIVE YALL 80% OF ALL SALES! HE SAYS ITS MONEY N THIS [RAT] TOUR! ALL RAPPER/RATS GET UP CHESSE [sic] ON THE LINE.”
He continued: “HE SAY IF ALL THE RAPPER/RATS WHERE YELLOW AT THE CONERTS [sic] THEY GET A 20k BONUS! THIS WILL HELP HIS CHEESE BRAND! HE REALLY WANTS THIS TOUR.”
It’s unclear whether any rappers who have been labeled a snitch would actually participate, but the chances don’t seem high.
