Boosie Badazz and Math Hoffa have recently clarified the rumors surrounding Boosie’s gun-related arrest, dismissing any connection to their podcast conversation. The duo took the opportunity to set the record straight during the My Expert Opinion episode aired in mid-June.
During the podcast, Hoffa inquired about the hypothetical scenario of Boosie being pulled over by law enforcement with a firearm present. Boosie responded by stating that his acquaintances often claim ownership of the weapon when questioned by the police. He further explained that individuals who are not convicted are usually the ones taking responsibility for the firearm, even during travel when legal procedures are followed to transport guns.
Coincidentally, shortly after the interview aired, Boosie was apprehended outside a San Diego courtroom on June 14, but the arrest was unrelated to the podcast conversation. Despite online criticism directed at Math Hoffa for his line of questioning, the two artists ran into each other at the 2023 BET Awards to dispel the rumors surrounding Boosie’s recent legal issues.
Boosie expressed frustration with the media’s attempt to link his case to the podcast, clarifying that they were discussing general topics related to their shared experiences in the neighborhood. Hoffa echoed this sentiment and addressed the camera, urging detractors to calm down. Co-host Gat Murda also chimed in, urging restraint from the audience.
While fans speculated that Math Hoffa’s questioning played a role, it was later revealed that Boosie’s own ill-advised Instagram Live posts inadvertently incriminated him. The posts, featuring Boosie visibly concealing a gun in the waistband of his jeans, surfaced online and attracted the attention of authorities. Given Boosie’s status as a convicted felon, these posts violated federal regulations prohibiting felons from possessing firearms.
As a result, Boosie faced several gun-related charges, including felony possession and transporting firearms across state lines. Initially denied bond, he was eventually granted a $50,000 bond in June and subsequently released from custody a few days later.
