Lil Boosie Dubs Himself this Generation’s Tupac & Announces Tupac Inspired Album ‘Boopac’

On Friday, April 7, 2017, rapper, poet and actor Tupac Shakur was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. It was a joyous event, as his friend, Snoop Dogg, accepted the honors on Tupac’s behalf.

It’s true that Tupac has inspired many artists of today, and it seems that Louisiana’s own, Lil Boosie (Boosie Bad Azz) has decided to honor the late rap icon with his new album.

During an interview with Vlad TV, Boosie revealed that his next album will be inspired by Tupac and will be called BooPac, even calling himself the Tupac of his generation:

“I know it’s going to be a big ol’ thang. But it’s in my heart. That’s what I wanna do. I’m naming it BooPac. It’s a double disc, 26 songs, because I’m my generation’s Tupac.”

He added:

“A lot of people didn’t grow up on Tupac. A lot of people didn’t grow up on Biggie. Those who love that kind of music grew up on me. That’s one reason. Another reason is ‘Pac’s music is forgot about now, that real music that touched you.”

Can someone please tell me that this is a joke? Now while I am completely understanding to what Boosie is saying here, I just don’t think that it’s a good idea. It’s obvious that he’s saying that like the late rap icon, he too makes music that touches on things that people really go through in life, but he can continue to that in the way that he already has.

I personally don’t think that this will work in the way that he wants it to. Do you?

A little favor...
