Boosie Badazz is the unlikeliest of candidates to enter the discussion of modern bluesmen, but he has. Funny enough, the big bad Boosie Man is running scared from a demon towering over him on the predatory chain. You don't have to read into it; Boosie shows gratitude for getting off death row. The metaphors he lives by are reinforced by this aura he has about him - of immutability and immortality.
On "Devil In My Bedroom," Boosie is at once the victim and the perpetrator of his own ills. The Baton Rouge legend gives a nod to the River delta on his path to full-catharsis. Big Pokey Bear takes his assignment right on the nose, both men insistent on sticking to tradition. The rest of the album feels like a blanket statement next to this meddlesome note.
Does the Boosie Man keep you up at night?
My baby mama say she want more money
I wanna run Forrest, run
I go to sleep, my dreams be ugly
For all the sins that I done done
On death row, they said I wouldn't make it
They slandered my name and the pain
They made my mama the witness
So she couldn't be in trial with her baby.
