Boosie has been banned from Instagram for quite some time, so he wants to settle the score. During a recent interview with VladTV, the Baton Rouge native shared his desires to set up a boxing match against Instagram CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

“I want to set up a Triller,” he said. “Boosie versus Zuckerberg. Celebrity boxing match. They just showing me there’s level to shit. People can really put you in your place when you don’t own shit or you don’t have no rights to shit.”

Boosie’s beef with Zuckerberg stems back to the early days of the pandemic when the emcee was known to have racy Instagram Live sessions.

At the time, he received a warning, but after a few more violations on the platform, his account was banned. He made several pleas to get his page restored, even offering to pay the executive $100,000, but it took a while before he was able to access his account. When his page was finally back up, a promo stunt got it suspended once again. As REVOLT previously reported, Boosie’s offer to pay someone willing to get punched in the face wasn’t well received. The rapper hasn’t been able to get his account back since, prompting him to call Zuckerberg “racist.”

During the interview with Vlad, he admitted that he made a baseless claim. “I got in my feelings,” he said. “I don’t know if he’s racist or not I’m telling the truth, but I wanted to take it there.” His desire for Black billionaires to help him fund his own Instagram app, however, has not changed.

“I reached out to Puffy. I called Puffy personally,” said Boosie. “‘Puffy! Set up Instagram, man. Let me run that bitch. Call all the billionaires. Call Dre, everybody!’ I told Puff, ‘Call Jigga.’ Just like they entertaining, ain’t nobody entertaining like this Black community. We got crazy people that do the most crazy shit … I got people working on apps right now trying to get me my own social media. I’m working.”
