Boosie’s tribute track to the late-Migos Takeoff, “Rocketman,” receives a remix treatment with Jeezy and Kodak Black joining the hit. While the two guests add star-studded feature verses, Boosie raps about various perspectives ranging from his music, his film, and accessibility.
“I drop an album and I hope they cop it (Hope they cop it)/I drop a movie and I hope they watch it (Hope they watch it)/If they refusin’, I think losin’ and/think ’bout a rocket (Feel lost)/My life confused, it feel like they usin’ me, ’cause I got it/Raised ’bout it, ’bout it, damn shame, I never thought to cop it (Fat-ass),” Boosie raps on the opening line.
Boosie, like the majority of southern hip-hop superstars, was a fan of Takeoff and the Migos. Boosie was very vocal on the respect and honor of today’s hip-hop
stars upon Takeoff’s death in November 2022. On the track, Boosie would face his confusion on today’s streets and players.
He continues: “These kids real out their mind, it’s another time (Another time)/His sister fuckin’ grown men, his granny thirty-five (Thirty-five)/He got his time, now he no longer won’t throw a sign (Throw a sign)/’Cause them niggas ain’t send him nothin’, since he got to dyin’/To all the step, you ain’t tired of seein’ your mama cryin’?”
“Rocketman” will appear on Boosie’s forthcoming album and will serve as the follow-up to Lines For Valentines, released in February 2023. Kodak Black, who appears on the track courtesy of Atlantic Records, dropped his latest single, “No Love For A Thug.” Jeezy appears on the track courtesy of his new deal with Def Jam Recordings, which released his eighth album, Snowfall, last year.
Boosie began rapping in the 1990s as a member of the hip-hop collective Concentration Camp, eventually pursuing a solo career in 2000 with the release of his debut album Youngest of da Camp. After leaving the label the following year, he signed with Pimp C’s Trill Entertainment to release his second studio album, For My Thugz (2002). One of the most prominent figures of Southern hip hop, Hatch has gone on to release thirteen solo studio albums, as well as seven collaborative albums and 44 mixtapes.
In 2007, Lil Boosie released Bad Azz Mixtapes Vol. 2 while together with Webbie he featured on the remix of “Wipe Me Down” by rapper Foxx. It was put on the Trill Entertainment compilation album Survival of the Fittest, which was released in 2007.
