The project by Lil Boosie called “Gangsta Musik” was released back in 2004 [May 25] through Asylum records. He worked with fellow Baton Rouge rapper Webbie on the songs and they made the album as a duo. This release is one of the primary reasons that they have had so much success and have been able to gain many new fans. They put a lot of work into this album and really impressed people that weren’t originally sure what to think about their music. The entire album is classic and features half of U.G.K. (Bun B) on a couple tracks and the Pimp on one track. This album impressed people from Baton Rouge even more so than others because it was clear that the two artists took their rap skill to an entirely new level on this project.
The Gangsta Musik album opens with the classic track entitled “Show Ya Tattoos” which actually featured both Pimp C and Bun B. It then transitioned into the track “Swerve,” a track that has become highly popular across the entire United States. People that have been following Boosie and Webbie generally regard this project as a hood classic, something that every fan needs in their collection. If you are from the south and do not have this project, you are really missing out on some great work by both artists. It was songs like “Give Me That f. Bun B” that really pushed them into the mainstream spotlight.
Considering that this “Gangsta Musik” was created just a year after their first release as a duo called “Ghetto Stories,” they really were on their grind. Both were putting out mixtapes and getting studio time with some great producers. Bun B of Trill Entertainment was working with these two in order to help them achieve success. By no means did he write their material, but he did want to make some guest appearances so that more people would recognize their skill, or as the Bad Azz would say “Undeniable Talent.”
Webbie & Lil Boosie – U Ain’t Bout What U Be Talkin Bout
Not only do all the songs from the CD bump hard in the cars, but it contains many joints like “Goin Thru Some Thangs” that is still sometimes featured at concerts by Boosie. Other tracks like “Baby Mama” and “U Ain’t Bout What U Be Talkin Bout” off the Gangsta Musik album are very hard. It is great to witness these two artists come along as people and mature in their rap careers. They currently have quite an impressive lineup of work, and this project was a huge reason that they have experienced continued success and an increasingly large fan-base.
