Boosie Badazz just revealed that he charges $40K for his now iconic and quite frequent podcast interviews. Moreover, he also said that he prefers to make his money that way, rather than by participating in club hostings. While he admitted that venue walkthroughs and similar appearances might net him more money, he’d rather be cautious. After all, being in a cramped and amped public space like that is a headache even if you’re not a celebrity. As the Louisiana rapper explained, he’s very particular about where, when, and with who he decides to offer himself up to media, business, or entertainment.

“I can make 30, 40 thousand to sit on a couch to talk,” Boosie explained. “That’s way safer than that club with all them guns in that b***h, gotta leave the club. [I’m] in front of somebody who ain’t gon’ hurt me. I think y’all should be happy I’m doing podcasts. I’mma live [way longer] doing podcasts. Way less danger doing podcasts. Would you rather do a show for 60 or podcast for 45? I made that decision the other day. I took the 45 over the 60. The 60 I had to pay for flights, hotels, going to a dangerous a** city. S**t about being careful, man. I can sit for 45 minutes on a couch and just talk s**t. 40 something thousand dollars, I mean, that’s a blessing bro.”

Boosie Talks Charging $40K For Podcast Talks Over Hostings

Of course, the 40-year-old stirred the pot with his interviews on multiple occasions, whether on standard podcasts or less defined media. For example, he called out T.I. in a recent interview with VladTV for allegedly snitching on his dead cousin. “If he did that, you’re a f***in’ rat, too,” he said. “I don’t spare no-motherf***in’-body… if you cooperate with law enforcement to get you out of trouble… that means you’re a rat.” Also, he canceled their joint album.

Since then, the two engaged in some heated back-and-forths, although it’s mostly been T.I. taking the shots. Recently, he called Boosie out for skipping an invitation to a live show where he had paperwork to prove his story’s truth. It’s been a strange beef, for sure, but an oddly difficult one to pick a side on. Regardless of your take, stay tuned to HNHH for the latest on Boosie Badazz.
