*Now this is some real country-fied, ratchet mess here.
We’re talking about the so-called “celebrations” via social media of the release of rapper Lil Boosiefrom Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola this past Wednesday, which has drawn the ire of Jason Weaver. Via Instagram, the actor/singer took exception to the over the top “reaction” by Lil Boosie’s fans and family, calling it “coon sh*t.” Yes, he did.
Weaver, rightfully so in a lot of folks’ opinion, is concerned because the rapper – who was already serving a four-year sentence for drugs and gun possession when he was found guilty of conspiring to smuggle codeine, marijuana and ecstasy into prison – is being glorified like he’s a hero. Here’s what he wrote:
*Actor Jason Weaver, best known for his roles in “Smart Guy,” “Drumline” and “ATL,” is getting creative to expand his entertainment career and most of all, to generate some exra income.
Tapping into his singing abilities, Weaver has created a new group, Sons of Bobby Brown, an idea birthed while working with songwriter Sky Keeton. Of you’re wondering, “Are they Bobby Brown’s sons?” Of course not. The actor/singer explains how the name came about.
“We were in the studio this past summer writing for other artists…We would just say we’re on some Bobby Brown stuff, it had an edge to it, some soul, it was on some rock star stuff, and we said we’re the sons of Bobby Brown,” says Weaver.
The duo plan to release a mixtape sooner than later which will likely include their first song, “You Got Me,” which has an accompanying music video. Watch it below:
