Gangsta by LIL BOOSIE (2024)

[Verse One]
if you ain't heard I'm Lil' Boosie who be rappin bout that gangsta sh*t
aint satisfied unless I'm high and my bank get thick
I'm the most underestimated rapper walkin the streets
nigg*z on videos with money but can't talk it like me
cause they ain't sour like me
sh*t in two seconds you down
my first album ain't no joke

how would you think my second would sound
hope to make it in this rap game I gotta get rich
go to gin and juice and henny to a bottle of chrys
put yo fo's up in the sky if you feelin my rhymes
might be local for now but I'm still gone shine
put my doggs on Garfield who told me don't stop
keep rappin and that's whats happin and for sho you gone pop
so I kept my head up and spoke the real from the heart
f*ck around you will get down thank I'm still a lil boy
you got another thang comin you ain't f*ckin wit no hoe or no woman
and fo down is the hood I'm from

[Chorus: x4]
if you ain't heard I'm Lil boosie who be rappin bout that gangsta sh*t
nigg* I'm bout that gangsta sh*t

[Second Verse]
nigg*z getting the picture but don't want to put me
in the frame it's a shame
I rap harder than any nigg* you name
from weed to caine I distributed all
and for everybody who want see Lil' Boosie fall man f*ck yall
and throw up chain defenses
I'll go off like I'm Caine in Menace

look you nigg*z smiling in my face you ain't my round
I'll put that f*ckin iron up in your face and lay you down
I'm thuggin nigg*

and that whole south gone ride if you touch it nigg*
now lets go hop up in the bucket nigg* lets get high as the f*ck

you better back off or I'ma hit this nigg* with this hot sh*t
just sit back and watch this

[Chorus: x4]

[Verse three]

[Chorus: repeat 'til song ends]

In Lil Boosie's song, "Gangsta," he talks about his lifestyle and how he is the most underestimated rapper in the streets. The opening bars of the song set the tone for what Lil Boosie is about, which is gangsta sh*t. He is currently at the height of his rap game and is not content unless he is high and his bank account is growing. Lil Boosie sees himself as an authentic rapper, unlike other rappers who flaunt their money on videos but cannot talk the talk like him. His first album was a hit, and he knows his second album will do significantly better. Lil Boosie wants to be successful in the rap game, and for him, the key is wealth. To achieve this, he goes from drinking gin and juice to Henny to a bottle of chrys. He represents his hood - Fo Down, and even though he may be local for now, he will still shine.

In the second verse, Lil Boosie talks more about his gangsta lifestyle, drug distribution, and how he is not intimidated by anyone. He believes he is harder than any rapper you name and will not fall no matter how many people want to see him fail. He is also riding with his crew and expects them to ride as hard as he does. They go hopping around in the bucket, smoking weed, and drinking Mad Dog. Lil' Boosie's is like a cave man: he may be small, but he is brave, and he is not scared of anyone. He warns those who mess with him that they will get dumped on. He is a mastermind when it comes to rapping, and there won't be too many people after him because they cannot match his style.

Overall, "Gangsta" is about Lil' Boosie's gangsta lifestyle and how he is the most authentic rapper in the streets. He is not intimidated by anyone and will not stop until he has achieved success in the rap game.
