Ray J and Boosie Badazz discuss roles in new play on The Breakfast Club

"Thugs and the Women Who Love Em" also stars K. Michelle and Lyfe Jennings.

Bad boys Boosie Badazz and Ray J stopped by "The Breakfast Club" to discuss their new collaboration, the play "Thugs and the Women Who Love Em’". Also featuring K. Michelle and Lyfe Jennings, the play said to be with its fare share of authentic lingo, violence and nudity, is according to the unlikely tag team "raw and uncut."

"It's the story of for four girls and all these girls are involved in a relationships with guys that are dope boys, street dudes, pimps — you name it. That’s the kid of guys they like because they are attracted to the money," said director Melvin Childs, who accompanied the music stars to the morning show. Having had grown tired of seeing similar types of entertainment not really evolve over the course of the last two decades, Childs felt it was time for some change. "I wanted to do something totally different," he told Angela Yee and Charlamagne the God.

"When I got my role I said 'Shit, I did that in real life,'" joked Boosie Badazz. Though he has yet to watch it himself, the southern rap legend promises that the well-written play that features quality singing and acting is worth checking out. His family, who have seen it are also singing its praises. "All my family who watches it love it. They're like they've never seen no play like it," he said.

"It's pushing our talent as far as acting and being on point," said Ray J.

Boosie Badazz also explained the meaning behind the title of his forthcoming double album, BooPac. The title, which has received support from his fans is the result of the impact Pac’s music had on Boosie. "2Pac’s music is one of the musics that touched me," he said before admitting that the icon was the first rapper to bring him to tears.
