Lil Boosie’s daughter sent shock waves through social media and other arenas when she used the N-word while expressing excitement about her dad being released from prison after serving a 52 month term. “I told y’all n*****! I told y’all n*****,” said the little one via a video uploaded to Instagram. “Y’all thought I was playing, but I told you! Boosie coming home today, he coming home today, he coming home today. Told y’all! Y’all better believe it. The streets is his!”
Although some viewed her reaction as pure excitement over her father’s return, many said that Boosie’s daughter was too young to use the N-word. “Wonder if the folks who taught Boosie’s daughter that its cute 2 use the n-word also read 2 & with her daily,” said one user on Twitter. Another associated the little one with gang culture writing, “Lil Boosie’s daughter is a thug too! Throw her in jail pls. The other kids in school are not safe.”
Lil Boosie commented on his daughter’s use of the N-word shortly after getting wind of the backlash surrounding the little one’s actions. “I was too happy to fuss,” said the rapper. “You know, after that I told her I didn’t want her saying the word. But, she was one of those that went through ‘your daddy ain’t coming home’, ‘yo daddy this’ in schools and such. So, I think it was just..when I called her and told her I was coming home, I think it was all the stuff she went through coming out. I didn’t know she had it in her.”
