Boosie Badazz Biography
Boosie BadAzz, born Torrence Ivy Hatch Jr. on 14 November 1982, was raised on West Garfield Street in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As a young child, Boosie received a Type 1 diabetes diagnosis. When he reached his teenage years, his cousin Young Dee recognized his potential and started tagging him in events. In the 1990s, he introduced C-Loc, a rapper from Baton Rouge, to Boosie. Boosie was mentored by Young Bleed, C-Loc, and MD, who instructed him in business practices. He was finally given permission to join Concentration Camp in 1998, making him the group’s youngest member. C-Loc, Young Bleed, Lucky Knuckles, J-Von, Lee Tyme, Max Minelli, Boo, and Happy Perez made up the group.
On 9 March 2013, it was announced that Boosie had earned his GED certificate while incarcerated and is a notable alumnus of McKinley Senior High School.
He was raised by his mother, Connie Hatch, a school principal whose father was a minister, and his father, Torrence Hatch, Sr., who passed away in 1997. It’s widely said that his father, a suffering drug addict, had been murdered in the streets.
Boosie was his parents’ pet name for him, and he later went by the name Lil Boosie. His mother hoped that his excellent sportsmanship would help him gain admission to a reputable college with his skill as a basketball player. But he became embroiled in drug use and was expelled from high school.
Boosie has seven siblings; however, not all are well-known to the general public. Among them is Taquari “TQ” Hatch, his brother and the co-founder of Bad Azz Entertainment. In addition, Yeteaka Collins, a sister of Boosie, passed away in June 2019 at 34.
Boosie has eight children with six women. Some of his children are Ivyana Hatch, Jr., Tarlaysia Hatch, and Torrence Hatch.
He stated that he did not think marriage was a wise decision because he did not want to risk losing half of his wealth to his spouse if he committed adultery. However, he has also complimented women who remain in a relationship with an unfaithful partner, saying he respects those women.
Walnita Decuir, Lil Boosie’s ex-girlfriend and the mother of four of his children, was arrested in 2010 on suspicion of drug distribution after she allegedly attempted to deliver marijuana, codeine, and MDMA to him while he was incarcerated. It is claimed that he is dating Rajel Nelson now.
Rapper C-Loc met Boosie for the first time when he began rapping thanks to his cousin Young Bleed. After taking Boosie Badazz under his wing, he mentored the young artist. Boosie joined the “Concentration Camp” group in 1996 at 14. The youngest member of the group, he. C-Loc, Young Bleed, and six other people were in the group. He performs rap in hip-hop, southern hip-hop, and gangsta rap.
Later, he debuted as Boosie on Concentration Camp’s third studio album, Camp III: Thug Brothas, and C-Loc’s fifth album, “It’s A Gamble” (released in 2000). Lil Boosie was given a prominent place among the group due to Young Bleed leaving the Camp. He was one of the Camp’s “faces” alongside C-Loc and Max Minelli.
With the release of his debut album, Youngest of da Camp (Camp Life Entertainment, 2000), he eventually launched a solo career at 17. Happy Perez produced the record, including C-Loc, Max Minelli, and Donkey. He joined Trill Entertainment in 2001 with the support of its late CEO, Pimp C of UGK. Soon later, in 2002, Trill went under the alias Lil Boosie and independently released the album For My Thugz. He also released his debut mixtape, Boosie 2002 (Advance), which included Pimp C and Young Bleed. The album featured Pimp C, Young Bleed, and Webbie. Two years later, he and Webbie collaborated to create the album “Ghetto Stories.” The duo came back together in 2004 and worked on another project, “Trill Azz Mixtape Vol. 1.” In the same year, Boosie released “Trill Azz Mixes II.”
Hatch, one of the most well-known figures in Southern hip hop, has released 44 mixtapes, seven collaborative albums, and 13 studio albums under his name. However, his career-long homophobic and transphobic remarks, as well as his investment in prostitution for his young children, have overshadowed his notoriety.
Hatch received a four-year sentence in 2009 for narcotics and firearms-related offenses. In 2010, he was charged with first-degree murder and given a 10-year sentence after being found guilty of numerous counts of drug possession intending to distribute. He was acquitted of murder in 2012. Hatch was released from jail on 5 March 2014 after spending five years for drug-related offenses.
Boosie made his first public remarks after being released on 10 March 2014. He announced his new record deal with Atlantic Records during the press conference. “Show Da World” featuring Webbie would be his debut single. The songs “Wuda Cuda Shuda” by 2 Chainz, “Beat Up the Block” by Dorrough Music, “Face Down” by DJ Mustard, “Beez Like” by Young Jeezy, “Jet Fuel” by T.I., and “Made Me” (Remix) by Snootie Wild all included Lil Boosie as a featured artist.
In an interview with Noisey in May 2015, Boosie stated why he changed his stage name to Boosie Badazz in October 2014: “I got tired of just people, grown men, like ‘What up Lil Boosie?'” No, I’m an adult. It ought to be Mr. I’m Boosie Badazz, you know. Man, I’m a father. Just get out of my yard! I was feeling that way. Since more people refer to me as Boosie Badazz than Boosie when they see me, I just stuck with the Boosie Badazz.”
In October 2014, he made his mixtape “Life After Deathrow” public. “Touchdown 2 Cause Hell,” his sixth studio album, was made available in April 2015 by Bad Azz Music Syndicate. Boosie Badazz and his brother Taquari “TQ” Hatch started this record company. Due to the numerous ineligible artists and associates who started representing “Bad Azz Ent” without Boosie’s knowledge, TQ recommended renaming Bad Azz Entertainment while Boosie was still incarcerated. TQ believed that the brand would need to be rebuilt to sign musicians who were more diversified and even worldwide in the future. Warner Bros. Records offered Boosie a contract in late January 2005.
In February 2020, Boosie came under fire for remarks he made about Zaya Wade, the 12-year-old daughter of American basketball player Dwyane Wade, who had recently come out as transgender with the backing of her parents. In the same video, he continued by saying that criminalizing physical abuse (like beating) gives kids too much control over their parents.
Boosie was asked to leave Georgia’s Planet Fitness in February 2020, just days after the Zaya Wade incident. Boosie claimed the gym’s manager was hostile toward him because of his comments toward Wade, but a company representative denied this. Instead, the spokesperson said that the rapper had broken company rules and had harassed staff members.
In May 2020, Boosie came under fire for a now-deleted Instagram video in which he spoke favorably of paying an adult female prostitute to have oral sex with his son and nephew, who were 12 and 13 years old at the time and under the legal age of consent in every state in the union, as well as letting his young son watch pornography because he believed it was more appropriate for kids to watch than “cartoons with two men kissing.” Earlier in 2017, Boosie boasted that he had found his son a “bad bitch” to perform fellatio on him for his birthday in a post intended for his soon-to-be 14-year-old son. The post received 27,000 likes; however, Boosie later said he had been joking.
At 33, Boosie confirmed he had kidney cancer on 25 November 2015. The malignancy was successfully removed through surgery. Also, having been given a Type 1 diabetes diagnosis as a child, he once posted on Instagram in April 2020 requesting followers in the Jacksonville region to phone him if they knew where they might find insulin glargine, better known as Lantus for him.
In 2021, Boosie launched a bigoted tirade against the gay artist Lil Nas X, asking him to take his own life, and then following his attendance at a candlelight memorial for rapper MO3, Boosie was shot in the leg.
The net worth of American rapper Boosie Badazz is reportedly $10 million. His musical career has brought him a fortune.
The superstar rapper owns a Chevy Corvette, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Cadillac Escalade, a Rolls Royce Phantom, Mercedes Maybach GLS600, RAM 1500 TRX, Mercedes-Maybach S650, Bentley Bentayga, and several more-high end vehicles.
Boosie owns a $15 million mansion in Atlanta and other properties in his native Baton Rouge and other parts of the country.
Boosie has been trying his hand at serious acting and landed a part in the 2018 independent boxing movie “Glass Jaw. He portrays a street-smart owner of an underground combat club. It is not surprising that he has acting experience as he previously appeared in movies like “Gangsta Musik” “Bad Azz,” “On The Grind,” “Last Dayz, and Ghetto Stories: The Movie,” where he played a small-time drug dealer. Ghetto Stories is a 2010 American crime film directed by John McDougal and Turk, produced and distributed by Asylum Records. It was released on 9 November 2010. His 2021 movie, “My Struggle,” tells the story of a failed rapper continuing to trip over his laces.
