Boosie might not be the first person you think of for the lead in a musical, but he was exactly the person that the producers of the upcoming touring musical Thugs & The Women Who Love Them wanted. Boosie explained his view on the star-studded play in a new interview with VIBE.

“It’s a crazy play, good from the start to curtain call,” he said. “[Thugs & The Women Who Love Them] is a different kind of musical. It’s not a boring play that you would go to. It was written perfectly… I’m a give y’all this hint: Me and Ray J are beefing in there. So, Ray J my enemy in there. First we were business partners, then we become enemies.”

Boosie admitted that he was wholly unfamiliar with the theater world before producers reached out to him for this play. “This is my first rodeo. I didn’t even know what an intermission was in a play,” he said, laughing. “ I was outside and I said ‘Everybody leaving! What’s going on?’ I never been to a play. I thought that they were walking out for some reason.”

In spite of this being Boosie’s first go-round, the Badazz clearly takes his role seriously. He said he likes to use method acting techniques to get himself into the role before he performs.

“Before I do my part, I like to zone out a little bit,” he said. “I make everybody call me ‘Kevin’ backstage, my character’s name — I saw someone do that in Hollywood.”

In addition to Boosie, the play will also feature turns from Ray J, Amina Buddafly, K. Michelle, Jamal Woolard, Lyfe Jennings and Karlie Redd.
