Boosie BadAzz paid a man over $500 to take a brutal smack to the face for a music video.
Boosie became a trending topic on March 27 after video surfaced of him appearing to be in a corner store slapping the taste out of man’s mouth. It turns out the hefty smack was all a part of a music video for a song Boosie has with DaBaby titled “Period.” In the clip, Boosie and DaBaby approach the counter, where a man begins to berate Boosie. After a short exchange of words, the Baton Rouge, La. rapper hauls off and slaps the man viciously. This was all planned beforehand, with Boosie explaining the scene to the man before laying the smack down. After the tough scene, Boosie cashes the man out. With a tip provided by DaBaby, the man reportedly raked in $554 for taking the smack on camera.
The stunt may have cost the rapper. Shortly after he posted the clip on his Instagram page, his page was once again deleted. Boosie had issues with Instagram in 2020 when his Instagram page was deleted for violating the app’s policies. Boosie claimed IG was discriminating against him and said he was going to sue the app. “I STARTED A NEW IG @boosienewig n they stopped my live soon as shaderoom posted it ♂️I HAVENT POSTED NOTHIN R WENT LIVE this is discrimination/racial etc. IM SUEING CALLING DREW NOW ‼️,” he tweeted at the time. It is unclear if he actually followed through on his threats.
