Album: Lil Boosie, Super Bad: The Return Of Boosie Bad Azz (2009)

Super Bad was a disappointment from a creative perspective. At the moment when his star seemed truly ascendant, the album was an uneven compromise packed with guest spots from Trill ENT's roster. The Super Bad mixtape released that same year seemed a more consistent release. But "Mind of a Maniac," with its haunted self-analysis (and a striking video featuring Boosie in a straightjacket with his eyelids turned inside-out), was a real moment of powerful, self-lacerating emotional tremors, rage directed inwards and outwards.
