Boosie Badazz did work in 2016, dropping a total of seven projects from New Year’s Day all the way up until Thanksgiving. So how did the Louisiana rapper cap off his productive year? By spending time with his family and learning how to snowboard.
This week, a video of Boosie’s holiday activities has surfaced. It begins with footage of him coming down a slope rocking a bright red coat and yelling, “I’m a gangsta,” before taking a tumble like a champ. He later shows off one of his Christmas gifts—an iced-out Rolex—and takes a moment to wish his loved-ones and fans happy holidays.
“Blessed like a motherfucker,” he tells the camera.
This holiday seemed especially blessed for Boosie. Just a little over a year ago, the 34-year-old underwent surgery to remove a tumor from his kidney. After he successfully beat the cancer, the rapper devoted time not just to his music, but also to giving back. In August, Boosie donated clothes and hygiene kits to Louisiana flood victims.
"Me and @therealtq had to load the last truck solo! Just Doing what I can to help my people effected by the #brflood2016,” he wrote on Instagram. “20,000 socks n underwear for men, women n children/ bottle waters n hygiene kits available also.”
