Why Boosie Badazz turned down $250,000

Boosie Badazz is always outspoken and is one of the prominent faces of Vlad TV. However, his words sometimes get him in a lot of trouble and some of the things that he says are controversial, to say the least. 

The Louisiana emcee has many opinions and values, and in an interview on The Danza Project, the Baton Rouge lyricist unveiled why he turned down $250,000 for a performance. 

During his conversation with the hosts, Boosie (real name Torrence Hatch Jr) expressed how he has a specific set of values but hates no one. The previous is why he declined to take money offered to him to perform at an LGBTQ event. The ‘Wipe Me Down’ artist proceeded to explain how it wouldn’t sit right with him as that’s not what he promotes in his music. Therefore, it would be inauthentic. 

Explaining he doesn’t live for money, Hatch divulged, “I been offered a quarter million to go perform at LGBTQ community things. Big money! I told them I have nothing against it at all, but that’s not what I push, and that’s not what I believe in. A quarter million. I’m good, bruh. That’s not what I believe in.”

Explaining there’s no hatred or animosity towards anybody from any walk of life, Hatch continued, “They act like I hate them. My assistant is gay. This man deals with millions of dollars for me. I trust gay people more than I trust regular people. Real talk. A lot of them be genuine.”

However, unfortunately for Boosie Badazz, his approach when speaking about Zaya Wade, a transgender girl, once got him in a lot of trouble. He believes as a result of that, people have come to the conclusion he hates the LGBTQ community, unveiling, “I shoulda said it in a better way or something like that. People started judging me on that, but nah, man, I don’t have no problems with what nobody do. I just don’t agree with it.”

In September last year, Boosie went on a tirade against Lil Nas X. He has since claimed that the industry shut him out as a result, asserting, “They tried to turn me against the gay world. A lot of people was backing away. Personally, I didn’t like that. I felt like I was shunned away.” You can watch Boosie Badazz’s Danza Project interview below.
