boosie

One of hip-hop’s most talked about topics today is Lil Boosie and what he plans to do since being released from prison last month. He’s held a press conference since then and has released a few tracks, but it’s time for a full project from the Louisiana native. Well, according to Complex, Boosie will be releasing his almost complete new album on July 15th.

Bring on the southern heat!
