Lil Boosie Badazz had a tough night at the job on Tuesday. While in New York City, the he was set to perform in celebration of his new album’s release before taking ill and having to cut his set short.
Before the Louisiana native took the stage, DJ Envy forewarned the crowd that Boosie was sick and was almost en route to the hospital before saying he wanted to “perform regardless” with it being NYC and all. Well, Badazz tried to troop through it, running through his verse on K Camp’s “Cut Her Off” remix before pausing, then calling earl in the center of the stage.
In most cases, a rapper puking up on stage would lead to mentions of drunkness or “exhaustion” but that may not be the case for Badazz. While his camp hasn’t confirmed the exact nature of Tuesday’s illness, he does suffer from diabetes and takes daily treatments while adhering to a strict diet, all of which could play a role in things. Never know when one of those hoagies from a bodega will do you in.
Earlier on Tuesday, Boosie was a guest on The Breakfast Club. Watch the interview below.
Update: As suggested initially, it turns out that Boosie’s illness and daily treatments, or lack thereof, are what caused his stage sickness. According to TMZ, Badazz’s camp claims he missed an insulin shot after their was a mix-up with his luggage.
