On Friday, June 23 Boosie Badazz has been set free after posting a $100,000 bond in his federal gun case. This comes as a big win for , who faced prosecutors wanting to keep him behind bars throughout his legal battle.

Initially arrested during a routine traffic stop in early May, Boosie found himself in trouble with the law after two guns were allegedly discovered in the SUV he was riding in. State prosecutors dropped their case against him, only for federal authorities from Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) to charge him for the same offense on a federal level.

Despite the hurdles, Boosie managed to secure his release from jail with the help of two federal judges ruling in his favor. Celebrating his newfound freedom, Boosie wasted no time and released a brand-new album titled “First Day Back.” The album boasts 10 tracks and includes collaborations with his son, “Tootie Raww,” as well as his signed artist, “OG Dre,” and popular Atlanta rapper Rich Homie Quan.

Overjoyed and filled with gratitude, Boosie took to social media to express his happiness, recording himself and delivering a message to his fans. He thanked God, his family, and all those who supported him throughout his legal ordeal. Boosie also expressed his appreciation for those who traveled to San Diego to show their support.

In his video, Boosie talked about wanting to go to the BET Awards and asked for three tickets. He also joked about needing a haircut because he hadn't been able to get one for a while.

The Louisiana rapper excitedly exclaimed, “BT, I need three tickets! I want to go to the BET Awards, but I gotta go with my attorneys.”

Speaking to his critics, Boosie expressed that he's always been true to himself, even before he became a rapper. He mentioned that he had been in trouble with the law before because of marijuana, but he wanted to make it clear that his record wasn't as bad as some people might think.

Boosie ended his message by expressing his gratitude to all the people who supported him during tough times, including his fans. He wasn't bothered by negative comments and promised to stay focused on his business.

A few days prior to Boosie's arrest, the rapper took to Instagram to express his disappointment after being blocked from performing his song “Rocket Man” at the BET Awards. The song was dedicated to Migos rapper Takeoff, who tragically lost his life in a shooting incident in Houston, Texas, in November of the previous year.

Boosie posted a video on his Instagram, directly addressing BET with his message. He stated, “I want to perform ‘Rocket Man' at the BET Awards, dedicated to . It's only right, bro. If anybody else had made that song, they would be performing it. Let me perform it for the BET Awards.”

Expressing his frustration, Boosie pointed out that the BET Awards stood for Black Entertainment Television, and he expected his song to be recognized and performed on such a platform. He passionately insisted on being given the opportunity to perform “Rocket Man,” saying that it was a heartfelt tribute to Takeoff.

The Baton Rouge rapper firmly believed that if anyone else had created the song “Rocket Man,” they would have been granted the chance to perform it at the Awards. He called on his followers to tag BET, urging them to acknowledge his request.

In his message, Boosie remained unfiltered, expressing his genuine feelings without holding back. He affirmed his determination to perform “Rocket Man” at the Awards, regardless of any obstacles or disagreements he might face.

Even though Boosie tried to stay calm, it was clear that he really wanted to honor Takeoff with his performance. He believed it was the right thing to do to remember his friend who had passed away on a big stage like the BET Awards.

As fans eagerly looked forward to the BET Awards, hoping to see Boosie perform “Rocket Man,” problems between the rapper and the network started to cause more trouble. Boosie wanted everyone to know that he wouldn't be quiet about his feelings and that he would fight for what he believed was fair.

The argument between Boosie and BET made people even more excited and curious about the upcoming awards show. We at Dilemaradio are eagerly rooting for Boosie and hoping that he will get the opportunity to perform his heartfelt song for Takeoff at the BET Awards. It remained to be seen whether his wish would come true.
