The track “Independent” by Webbie, Lil Boosie, and Lil Phat was featured on Webbie’s Savage Life 2 album that came out in 2008. A lot of places list the title of the song as I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T since the chorus spells it out for the listeners. The chemistry demonstrated by the artists on this track is great, and helped the song become among the best hip hop and rap songs of the year. The album that it is on is great from start to finish even though it isn’t Boosies. There are many other places that you can find this song too, including the unofficial project with various artists called Down South Slangin Volume 44.
In order to get the authentic song and official version, you always should get the music directly from a trusted retailer like rhapsody, iTunes, or get a physical hard copy of the CD in stores. Since this anthem became so successful, they decided to make a music video which features a lot of women being “Independent.” A lot of artists these days say a lot of derogatory things about females and this track does the exact opposite of that. There are many women that are not dependent on their man for money and security; this track is a tribute to them.
If you listen to the chorus, they talk about women that have their own house and own car; “she got her own house, she got her own car.” Perhaps one of the best lines in the song came from Lil Boosie when he said, “try to get next to her, gotta be yourself mane, cuz she got her own money she don’t need no help mane.” This track is one of the most perfect cuts because it explains what men and women are looking for in relationships; independence and confidence.
Lil Boosie & Webbie – Independent (Music Video) w/ Lil Phat
Nobody wants to go out with someone that isn’t able to fend for themselves and is dependent on another for everything. There is a crazy Independent music video that goes along with the track as well. If you have not yet had the chance to see it, you can take a look at it above and check out what it is going to take for independence. In addition to the great track and music video, the production is impeccable; the bass really pounds hard through a good set of speakers. If you’re looking for hot verses that are accompanied by great production, this is one track that should not be passed up.
