Bone-hard Louisiana rap cult hero Boosie Badazz, formerly known as Lil Boosie, has had an an insanely productive year, releasing a huge pile of albums and mixtapes since 2016 began. Today, he adds to it with the release of the new mixtape Happy Thanksgiving And Merry Christmas. On first listen, there’s nothing explicitly holiday-themed about the music on the new tape, but it’s still immediately vaulted into the conversation about the year’s best cover art. The new tape features appearances from Rich Homie Quan, Lil Durk, and NBA YoungBoy, and you can stream the whole thing below, via The FADER.
Boosie is an American hero for appearing on his mixtape cover looking like that and then making a tape full of music that sounds like this.
