The Baton Rouge underground rap legend Boosie Badazz (formerly Lil Boosie) has been on an absolutely ridiculous tear this year. During the first two months of 2016, he released two full albums: In My Feelings (Goin’ Thru It), which dealt with Boosie’s recent and successful battle against cancer, and Out My Feelings (In My Past), a snarling and effective street-rap LP. Now he’s about to release his third album of the year, and on first listen, he isn’t losing any of his power by cranking out so much music. The new album Thug Talk is full of defiant, emotionally intense rap shit, and it reaffirms the idea that this guy is a national treasure. The late Pimp C, Houston underground mainstay Z-Ro, and Boosie’s old rapping partner Webbie all make appearances. Stream the whole album below, via Nah Right.
The self-released Thug Talk is out now at iTunes.
