Lil Boosie, 2003
“FOR MY THUGS” video shoot (Baton rouge, la) PHOTO BY KING YELLA Coming up in Southern Hip Hop O.G. C-Loc’s Concentration Camp, Lil Boosie has never really been a “lil” guy. From the jumpstart of his career he’s been surrounded by grown men, which is why you can hear a certain maturity in his music. When he and his rhyme partner Webbie received a Pimp C co-sign on their 2003 Ghetto Stories album, it only made him more official. Reminiscent of the “little dude with heart” image that 2Pac made popular, Boosie has birthed a fan base that resembles the crowd behind him in this photo: a usually rowdy bunch of followers who understand that true strength is in numbers.
