*Now this is some real country-fied, ratchet mess here.
We’re talking about the so-called “celebrations” via social media of the release of rapperLil Boosie from Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola this past Wednesday, which has drawn the ire of Jason Weaver. Via Instagram, the actor/singer took exception to the over the top “reaction” by Lil Boosie’s fans and family, calling it “coon sh*t.” Yes, he did.
Weaver, rightfully so in a lot of folks’ opinion, is concerned because the rapper – who was already serving a four-year sentence for drugs and gun possession when he was found guilty of conspiring to smuggle codeine, marijuana and ecstasy into prison – is being glorified like he’s a hero. Here’s what he wrote:
“Ok so…. I see a lot ppl on IG posting stuff about Lil Boosie gettin out of prison, talmbout ‘Welcome Home’ ‘Boosie Back’ and all kinds of other coon shit. Listen man, no disrespect to Boosie or anyone else for that matter who has ever been incarcerated, but the problem I have with the IG posts regarding him gettin out is it’s being displayed like it’s some kind of thing to celebrate. I’m sorry man, but why can’t we celebrate young black men who have stayed OUT of prison? I’m not judging Boosie or any other individual who may have faced similar circumstances. It would sure be cool though if we posted more pics of our young brothas receiving high school diplomas, college degrees, and cool shit like that instead of a playa gettin out of prison mane. I’m about celebrating milestones in young black men’s lives that we can REALLY be proud of! Like for real… C’mon son!! Sorry for the rant, but I just had to say it.#KanyeShrug”
We don’t know for sure, but we think the Instagram video below featuring Lil Boosie’s young daughter who appears to be about 5 or 6-years-old, is what took Mr. Weaver over the edge. In the video which has gone viral, she uses the n-word and adults can be heard laughing in the background.
“I told y’all ni**as! I told y’all ni**as! Y’all thought I was playing, but I told you! Boosie coming home today, he coming home today, he coming home today. Told y’all! Y’all better believe it. The streets is his”
