Over the past few days, Lil Boosie’s lil homies have been celebrating the rapper’s release from jail, but according to Jason Weaver, the world should be celebrating those who have stayed “OUT” of prison.
On Thursday, the actor posted this image on Instagram of a man holding a sign that reads, “C’mon son,” with the caption:
“Ok so…. I see a lot ppl on IG posting stuff about Lil Boosie gettin out of prison, talmbout ‘Welcome Home’ ‘Boosie Back’ and all kinds of other coon sh*t. Listen man, no disrespect to Boosie or anyone else for that matter who has ever been incarcerated, but the problem I have with the IG posts regarding him gettin out is it’s being displayed like it’s some kind of thing to celebrate.”
Jason continued, “I’m sorry man, but why can’t we celebrate young black men who have stayed OUT of prison? I’m not judging Boosie or any other individual who may have faced similar circumstances. It would sure be cool though if we posted more pics of our young brothas receiving high school diplomas, college degrees, and cool shit like that instead of a playa gettin out of prison mane. I’m about celebrating milestones in young black men’s lives that we can REALLY be proud of! Like for real… C’mon son!! Sorry for the rant, but I just had to say it.#KanyeShrug.”
On Wednesday evening, Lil Boosie was released from a Louisiana State Penitentiary after serving a five year sentence. The 31-year-old was initially serving time on a marijuana charge, but was busted attempting to smuggle drugs into prison, which led to his sentence being extended.
During his imprisonment, the 31-year-old faced numerous accusations, including a highly publicized murder trial in the 2009 killing of Terry Boyd. Torrence Hatch, the rapper’s legal name, was acquitted of first-degree murder in Boyd’s death in May 2012.
‘Black Panther’ Sequel To Focus On Okoye & Dora Milaje?!
A Billi, A Billi, A Billi … when your movie nets a billion dollars OF COURSE there’s going to be a sequel!!
As Black Panther continues to dominate the box office, talk has already turned to a sequel. Marvel president Kevin Fiege confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that they will definitely be returning the Wakanda stating, “we absolutely will do that.” But when asked what direction the movie would take, his answer was intriguing:
“I think there’s lots of potential. It’s a balance between leaving people wanting more and then giving them too much, but I would watch a movie about any of those characters you just named. I think Shuri’s astounding, and you’ll see much more of her in our universe. Okoye, I think I’d watch three action films just Okoye. I’m not saying we’re doing that, but I’m saying that we’re intrigued by them.”
Yessss, be intrigued! We all need more Danai Gurira (who plays Dora Milaje leader, Okoye) in our lives.
