Fresh off his recent spat with T.i., Boosie Badazz has went back to the booth and released a new inspirational track titled “Black & Beautiful.” Now the biggest gripe against rap music has always been it’s message. Critics of the genre have always been vocal about the damaging portrayal of black people and the violence associated it . So when a track like Boosie’s “Black & Beautiful” hit airwaves, it’s a breath of fresh air that changes the narrative.
Boosie takes the time to give black women their flowers and I love it. Even if you are not a fan of Boosie, as a fan of hip hop you should love the message. Clearly we need more music like this in hip hop and I have no problem admitting that. Now would I have thought this message would have came Boosie?, nah, but I guess even the guy known as Badazz still have a few tricks up his sleeve. Now we just need to get this joint played everywhere! Hopefully this single will live on a new Boosie album that he has on the way.
Never let no one have you stressing baby / You black as ever and that’s a blessing baby
The visuals for the video is chalked full of all shades of black women which is such an amazing thing to see. The video has black women being put on pedestal and at the forefront which is where they should always be. So lets give a major shout out and much love to Boosie for tackling the subject and making a damn great song at the same time. 👊🏾
