Okay, so we definitely understand the publicity and media release in the hip hop/rap community with Lil Boosie, but I never imagined such a large promotion company, let any established company putting Lil Boosie, in a large venue. Call me a “hater” or whatever that you may say, but I refuse believe it! A plane went missing this week with over 200 people on it, and instead of receiving information with what is going on in an email, I am receiving promotions from Live Nation with ticketing information for the Birmingham, Alabama show to see, Lil Boosie.
Torrence Hatch, aka Lil Boosie, is an extremely popular young man in the rap community, especially when he went to prison, surrounding allegations of him issuing people to kill on his behalf. He has became a name in the rap community for fans that are in their teens, up until early thirties. I particularly do not listen to his music, but I understand that he has a fan base, especially after seeing his Instagram with over 340k followers (Offical Boosie Instagram). To me, Live nation is about major deals, and they sell tickets to concerts with millions of fans, so I pose the question, “Why him?”
Live Nation is known to hosting concerts and sold out arenas to artist like U2, Jay-Z, and Madonna, but chose to host this concert in one city for Lil Boosie. Why???? From the press release and fans that are screaming “free Boosie”, live nation sought a one time deal with him, and decided to allow him to host a one night only show in Birmingham, Al. For one night only, fans will be able to see their favorite rapper, free and out of jail, performing on stage, in front of an appeared to be sold out show. From following his Instagram, April 13th, may be a night to remember. He’s a free man now, I just wonder what his musical career is going to be. Will he “Set it off?” (Click here to get tickets)
