Boosie mistook for Flavor Flav at airport
“I don’t look like no damn Flavor Flav, I look like Boosie,” the Baton Rouge rapper said.
Boosie Badazz is upset. The 38-year-old rapper — with the signature fade — took to Instagram Saturday (April 3) morning to share a peculiar encounter he had at the airport. He captioned the post “Wtf she on bra,” followed by two laughing emojis.
Within the video, Boosie is visibly pissed off as he walks through the airport with his mask hanging off of his ear.
“I was just in the fucking airport, a lady gon’ talk about ‘Flavor Flav,’” Boosie recalls. “I don’t look like no damn Flavor Flav — I look like Boosie. That’s why I dont wear these damn red glasses. Got me fucked up early this morning. Too early in the morning for that shit. Flavor Flav you cant fuck with me man!”
The comments beneath Boosie’s post are filled with laughing emojis, but during the initial incident Badazz was clearly distraught. Flav, Public Enemy’s legendary hype man is 62-years-old, and infamous for donning gaudy chains and big framed sunglasses. Boosie, of course, happened to be wearing both on this particular morning in the airport and was understandably mistaken for Flav.
Boosie has been incredibly active on social media this week. The “Wipe Me Down” rapper’s Instagram account was recently deactivated after a video surfaced on the Internet showing Boosie violently slapping an intoxicated man, stumbling over his words inside of a convenience store. Boosie offered to pay a man $554 to slap him on camera during a video shoot for DaBaby’s track “Period” and apparently, he found someone willing.
“I got $554 dollars [for] whoever let me slap the f**k out them on the ‘Period’ video,” Boosie said. “I wanna come on that bitch, nigga playing with me, I’m just gon’ bat him. Bop! But it gotta be real though.” Boosie went directly to Twitter to call out Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg following the incident. “@Zuck u just a racist,” Boosie tweeted.
On Thursday (April 1), he urged Black billionaires to form their own social media platforms. “INSTAGRAM IS RACIST(FACTS),” he tweeted. “#BLACK BILLIONAIRES, LET’S START OUR OWN SOCIAL MEDIA N LET ME RUN IT. #takeawaytheypower THEY MAKE THEY MONEY OFF US. WITH [O]R WITHOUT YALL, I’M GO[NNA] FIND A WAY.”
“THEY TAKE MY IG FOR POSTING MY LIQUOR, FOR POSTIN MY DEAD HOMIES,” he continued. “THEY DONT WANT US TO EAT. THEY DONT WANT US TO SMILE. THEY WONT DO THAT TO WHITE ENTERTAINERS FOR POSTIN THEIR PRODUCT [O]R POSTING THEIR FRIENDS WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY.” Thankfully, Boosie’s outsmarted Zuck for now and has created another unverified account.
