Lil’ Boosie is out of prison and all of his fans are elated. However, there are a select few people who feel otherwise. According to News One, the singer-actor Jason Weaver has even decided to verbally express his disdain of the “Show the World” rapper’s release. His opinion has definitely caused quite a stir.
The publication reports that Weaver feels the African American community glorifies black men “coming home” from prison more than they commemorate black males achieving laudatory feats such as graduating from high school or receiving college degrees.
Weaver took to social media platforms with several posts in reference to his controversial perspective. He made his opinion quite clear as several media outlets have begun gravitating to his statement.
Ok so…. I see a lot ppl on IG posting stuff about Lil Boosie gettin out of prison, talmbout “Welcome… http://t.co/2UakaqofBB

Here’s what Weaver had to say:
“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 shit. 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. 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”
Weaver also shared an image via Instagram in reference to his statement on Boosie’s release.
As previously reported on Inquisitr News, Lil’ Boosie, whose real name is Torrance Hatch, was released from prison on Wed. March 5.

Boosie was found guilty of smuggling codeine, marijuana and ecstasy into two state prison facilities – Louisiana State Penitentiary (Angola) and Dixon Correctional Institute located in Jackson, La.
