Those VladTV interviews with Boosie Badazz continue to captivate Hip Hop. A major component of his latest sit-down with the outlet centers around his recent viral moments with Lil Nas X. Boosie has received backlash for his homophobic remarks, but he has also gained support from fans and friends who have defended his comments.
Bounce icon Big Freedia came forward to deny that Boosie was homophobic and instead stated that he called Lil Nas X a “f*ggot” and told him to take his own life because Boosie was upset. Adding to that conversation, Boosie reiterated that he does not have any issues with the LGBTQIA+ community.
