Trill Entertainment has carved out a niche with club bangers by artists like Webbie, Lil’ Boosie, and 3Deep (Gimme Dat, Zoom, Watch My Shoes, Wipe Me Down, Independent). The truth behind the hard-partying hits, though, is that it took years of underground grinding (plus a bit of intervention from the man upstairs) for these emcees to make their way from the mean streets of Baton Rouge to the bright lights of mainstream hip-hop. Building off a theme previously brought up in Webbie, Birdman, and Rick Ross’ A Miracle, Boosie BadAzz documents the Trill Fam’s growth from from trap rookies to industry heavyweights. Do they plan to stay on top? You Better Believe It! Webbie continues the story, incorporating a shout-out to the late Pimp C, but the highlight is Young Jeezy‘s Snowman-to-“plat-man” tale. The collaborators’ rhymes are accented by an uncredited baritone singer’s inspiring hook and Mouse‘s more-epic-than-usual beat. Expect more growth (both in lyrics and subject matter) from Lil’ Boosie when his sophomore album, Superbad, hits the streets, the store shelves, and the Internet this summer.
