For months, rumors have swirled that Boosie and Webbie were no longer as thick as thieves. Recently, that was displayed on Al Gore’s innanet, when Webbie made a comment under YFN Lucci’s pic of him and Boosie.
Welp, we caught up with Webbie’s manager, Derrick, and he was able to add context to the situation.
Even though Webbie made that comment, he was really trolling, according to his manager and is still looking out for Boosie. All he is worried about is loyalty.
“Webbie don’t really give a f-k. N-s get in their feelings and take s-t out of proportion. Boosie and Webbie, they gon’ always be. It’s like peanut butter and jelly,” he expressed. Boosie went to jail, and Webbie was out here workin’. Webbie’s loyalty will always be Trill Entertainment. That’s what Webbie was talkin’ about,” he added. He’s a big person on loyalty. That’s all I know, and the legacy is what he’s talking about. It ain’t about no money. He’s been making money for years. It’s about the legacy.”
He also stated that Webbie was also replying to a comment made by Boosie, earlier this year, when a follower on IG Live asked him about Boosie. He stated, “Don’t ask me about Webbie. Do you see me with f-g Webbie. Do you see me hanging with Webbie? Well, don’t ask me about f-g Webbie.”
“It was just something that come up on the internet. Webbie caught it late, when Boosie was saying, “Don’t ask me about Webbie. You don’t see Webbie with me.” Webbie posted it on his page, too, cuz he thought it was funny.”
Boosie and Webbie have been rocking with each other for years, Derrick stated that it’s about preserving the legacy.
“Either you gon’ put the Trill Entertainment together or you gon’ take the Bad Azz legacy and the Savage Life legacy and put them all together and do this s-t the right way.”
Webbie’s manager also addressed claims that Webbie missed shows.
“Everybody over at Bad Azz know, they know who to get at, when it’s business time. We had a couple of shows, but it was never no phone call to management to make s-t go how it’s supposed to go.”
While Webbie made the comment under YFN Lucci’s pic, there’s no beef with YFN Lucci or any other rapper. The two were just together before quarantine.
“We were in the club together in Dallas right before this happened. Webbie ain’t got no beef with anybody in the game. He was just saying what he wanted to say.
Webbie may not have visited Boosie, while he was in jail but that doesn’t make him any less of a friend to Boosie.
“Some people felt some way about Webbie didn’t go to the jail house, but who wants to go to the jail house?” he asked. “Who wanna go there? That don’t make you fake cuz you didn’t go to the jail house. Boosie went to jail and they lost Bleek. They lost Phat. Who wanna see that? Lost Pimp C? Who wanna see that? He was reaching out as a brother. Like, where the f-k all these n-s was?”
Boosie and Webbie are not communicating at the moment.
“Certain people got people on block from the text messages to the internet. So, Webbie just gon’ say what he wanna say. So, he said what he said.”
Boosie made it known that Webbie wasn’t there for him but other rappers were, but Webbie doesn’t feel any type of way about it because it’s not about the money.
“Webbie don’t care. It’s not about the money. It don’t matter if Webbie gave him $2,000 and they gave him $200,00. We trying to do something for the Baton Rouge family and bring that light to the world,” he stated. “They gotta realize that Webbie carrying the whole squad. The whole Trill squad from every artist on the squad it was him and Boosie on the top. Let’s sit down like grown men and handle this without having to work so hard.”
He continued, “At the end of the day, it’s about business. Webbie got an album coming out real soon. You might hear Boosie, Gates, Master P. I don’ heard the songs.”
Bad communication can be the reason for the fallout of the longtime friends.
“Everything. It ain’t gon’ be no disagreements, if everybody is introduced properly to one another. From DJ to DJ to management to management,” he stated. Personal management, business management, road management– these guys need to know each other, and over the years a lot of this stuff has been changed out. It kind of throws curves into the business.”
While Boosie insists Webbie was doing shows in his honor, his team alleges that’s not the case at all.
“I read something about we were having free Boosie shows, while Boosie was in jail. That’s not true. But he do everywhere he go, just like Pimp C, hollas his (Boosie’s) name, “Rest in peace, Pimp C,” “Free Boosie.” But that’s about it”, he expressed.
Webbie may have missed a couple of shows, but that’s only because of miscommunication from Boosie’s team. No one contacted his manager.
“He might have missed a couple shows, like the “Boosie Bash,” but again, that’s not Webbie’s fault. That’s the management fault. We all stay in the same city. So, if you want Webbie at the Boosie Bash, you call me (his management). I handle the management. I’m gon’ do my walk-thrus before the show. I’m gon’ make sure his room is on point.
When you pay Webbie less than what he’s worth, you should only expect 3 songs.
“If he felt like you gave him $7K and he wanna do 3 songs for that, then that’s what it is.”
According to Derrick, their relationship has been strained, since Boosie got out of jail. “Since Boo got out of jail, it ain’t been time to get down like that. It ain’t been no slow down type conversation like me and you having. It ain’t been none of that.”
Speaking to Boosie’s comments about Webbie’s downfall, Webbie is doing just fine. He has a new album coming out, Savage 6, and he also has a school for independent artists to receive guidance with over 30,000 applicants.
Even the the two aren’t talking right now, Webbie still has Boosie’s best interest at heart.
“That’s what I’m saying. His name was coming up on some situations with his son. Just like they got Bill Cosby. So, watch what you say to certain people. Everybody don’t need the full details. You don’t need that for clout,” he said.
He also added, “Yeah, as far as his son. Like, I say, “Bless everybody. At the end of the day, if the girl was his son’s age, that’s a problem. If the girl is over his son’s age, then that’s still a problem. So, you’re exploiting yourself. You’re ratting on yourself. So, lil’ brother was saying, “Slow down, man. Smart n-s don’t go to jail.”
Derrick is hopeful that the two can mend their relationship. After all, they’re family.
“They family. I love Boosie just like I love Webbie. We want the best for both of them cuz we know what they can start. This is some different s-t, It’s way different, we on some get the family and show other families how to get wealthy too.
Webbie is currently gearing up to release his upcoming album, Savage 6. Some of the artists already mentioned to be featured are Master P and Kevin Gates. He’s hoping to get Da Baby on the album also.
