Boosie Badazz and GloRilla name their pets after each other.

Boosie Badazz and GloRilla have shown love for each other in an unconventional manner. Though Boosie’s known to embrace much of the talent emerging out of the South, we’ve yet to see him and GloRilla on a track. However, his appreciation for the artist hasn’t been lost. Over the weekend, the Louisiana legend went on Instagram Live when he revealed that he named his dog GloRilla. “I named my dog GloRilla… Big Glo… Ole GloRilla, mane,” he said in the video. Some might look at it as some form of disrespect but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

Glo didn’t push back nor did she condemn Boosie for the gesture. Instead, she reciprocated the same energy toward Boosie. The Memphis star shared a video of her pet lizard on Instagram, which she named after the Baton Rouge rapper. “Say hey to my new addition,” she told her fans. “Hey, Boosie!” So far, Boosie hasn’t responded to GloRilla’s pet name reveal but we could imagine that he would be flattered to have a lizard named after him.

Perhaps, this connection could lead to some sort of collaboration in the future. Boosie’s continued to make strides in his independent film career so perhaps, we’ll be able to catch a cameo from GloRilla in the near future. If not, maybe they’ll link up on a record. GloRilla’s currently riding high off of the release of the deluxe edition of Anyways, Life’s Great which features Lil Durk, among others. Plus, she kept the momentum high when she joined Drake on stage at Dreamville fest this weekend.

Meanwhile, Boosie Badazz has continued to make headlines with his antics, although he also delivered some excellent features recently. He teamed up with EST Gee on “HOTBOYS,”  a guttural banger that appears on the Louisville rapper’s new mixtape, MAD. Moreover, Boosie came through with a stand-out performance on DJ Drama’s I’m Really Like That. The rapper links up with OMB Peezy and the late Trouble on the single, “Iron Right.” Maybe a collab with GloRilla might be in the works next.
