If there’s anyone that the world could use a new album from, it’s WESTSIDE BOOGIE. It has officially been two years since the release of his big debut LP Everythings for Sale, a bonafide classic that saw 13 tracks and additional assists from JID, Eminem, 6LACK, Christian Scott, Shaé Universe, and Snoh Aalegra. Since then, we’ve seen a couple of notable freestyles and some show-stealing assists on songs like REASON’s “Extinct,” Jay Worthy’s “Bellin,” SiR’s “Rapper Weed,” and Guapdad 4000’s “Headless Horsemen.” Then, the Compton emcee made his official return with the new single “Outside,” a collaboration with Joey BADA$$.

Over the past weekend, the man formerly known as just Boogie then gifted us with a new freestyle titled “Joe Exotic,” an obvious reference to a certain “Tiger King” that sees him delivering rewind-worthy bars about past relationships and inner demons:

“I hit my ex, I feel the backslide comin’, told myself, “This be my last time fuckin’, I could make a hunnid just from sellin’ crewnecks, I’m a Campanella n***a but I love the blue checks/

Crying ‘bout the bitch in a fuckin’ groupchat, ol’ clingy ass n***a still ain’t let her loose yet, that’s how n***as be a lot, I be by myself because I tend to overthink a lot. probably why I drink a lot…/”

The accompanying visual keeps with previous drops like “Fade” and “Expose Me,” which show WESTSIDE BOOGIE hanging around at a single location while he performs — all as the song’s lyrics gradually appear on the side of the screen. This go’ round, he’s smoking and chilling with homies in a garage, presumably somewhere near his old stomping grounds.

Fans can enjoy said video for WESTSIDE BOOGIE’s “Joe Exotic” freestyle below. One can only hope that there’s plenty more coming from him — including a new body of work — in the near future.
