With his sophomore album, Superbad, out now in stores and online, Lil Boosie‘s lying low in anticipation of his latest, um, project: a two-year (or less, with good behavior) jail sentence on drug and weapon possession charges. Bummer, right? On the bright side (for fans, anyways) the Baton Rouge emcee’s back on our front page with the official remix of his latest LP’s reader-acclaimed lead single, Better Believe It. In addition to touting his ethnically diverse fanbase and blowing off the cops in his brand new opening bars, Boosie goes all-out on the guest verse tip, replacing original collaborators Young Jeezy and Webbie with a whopping four fellow Southern artists. Memphis representative Yo Gotti is second to flow over Mouse‘s anthemic, synth-drenched boardwork, followed by Houston street veteran Trae. Rounding out this remix are a relentlessly flowed verse by UGK alum Bun B and some triumphant closing bars from Boosie’s Trill labelmate, Foxx. This revamp’s lineup is impressive, but the question remains: will Boosie be able to maintain his high profile while behind bars? Here’s hoping he has enough material in the can to pull it off.
