Rap-Up TV: Lil Boosie Eyes Justin Bieber Collaboration, Gives Props to Drake

Boosie and the Biebs? While behind bars, the Louisiana rapper wrote over 1000 songs including one for Justin Bieber called “Stalking You.” While he hasn’t been able to connect with the pop superstar, he’s confident it will happen (Paging Scooter Braun).

“We’re looking at these bad girls, but it’s stalking you in a good way,” Boosie told Rap-Up TV of the record. “Like if you were mine, we’d be straight. That’s the record I got for him.”

He also hopes to collaborate with Drake, who invited him to Texas for Houston Appreciation Weekend earlier this month.

“I like Drake music,” said Boosie. “He got different music and even though it’s not the music I was raised on, I can listen to it and be like, ‘Yeah.’ I’d rather listen to Drake than a dude who talkin’ about the streets and he’s lying.”

In addition to releasing Touchdown 2 Cause Hell on July 15, he plans to drop another album by the end of the year. “I got so much material, so I’m tryna drop it and hit ‘em again in December,” he said. “There’s no time to play. It’s just gonna be a crazy album.”

If that wasn’t enough, a movie called Boosie is also in the works. “Even if you never listened to my music, just go check the movie out. Then you can see what I’ve been through and see this not no cakewalk.”

Chris Brown

Chris Brown has been in and out of the studio following his release from jail. In addition to working with Justin Bieber, Lil Boosie, Tyga, and Pia Mia, the singer is showing that he hasn’t lost his touch by dropping an impromptu freestyle to Drake’s “0 to 100.”

“Bored freestyling,” said Chris, who posted the short clip on Instagram.

Decked out in his Black Pyramid gear, he kicks back and spits over the Boi-1da-produced track, with his laptop in front of him.

“Known to take a ni**a bitch real quick / Singin’ to the pussy / I be on my Johnny Gill shit,” he raps.

Chris is also making some real estate moves. According to TMZ, he recently sold his West Hollywood penthouse, which he bought in 2011 for $1.6 million. His infamous Hollywood Hills crib is also in escrow for $1.79 million.

Drake Brings Out Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, & Tinashe at HAW Concert

Drake

Five years after selling out his first show in Houston, Drake returned to where it all began. Following his appearance at the Astros game on Thursday, the Canadian rapper headlined a show at Warehouse Live as part of Houston Appreciation Weekend. He was joined onstage by some of H-town’s finest including Slim Thug, Lil Keke, and Yungstar.

Lil Flip and Trae Tha Truth got the crowd warmed up before Drake hit the stage with “Draft Day” and “We Made It,” launching into songs off his debut Thank Me Later including “Karaoke” and “Miss Me.”

Travi$ Scott joined him for “Upper Echelon,” and he performed his remix to “2 On” with Tinashe and OB OBrien. Compton’s own YG brought some West Coast flavor with a performance of “Who Do You Love?”

The crowd went wild when Big Sean emerged for his verse on “All Me.”

“This guy right here has done so much for me over the course of my life,” Drake said of the Detroit MC. “If he needs me to perform at a three-year-old’s birthday party for nine hours, I’ll do that shit. I’ll fly anywhere in the world for this ni**a, I’ll do anything for this ni**a.”

Wiz Khalifa blazed the stage with his anthem “We Dem Boyz,” and Drake smoked with him for the first time onstage.

“I’ve never done this in my life before during a show,” said Drake as he puffed from Wiz’ joint.

He delivered crowd favorites including “0 to 100″ and “Worst Behavior,” but it was the Houston-inspired “November 18th” that drew the biggest response.

Watch highlights from Drake’s Houston homecoming below.
