Bodybag

Album: Lil' Boosie (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Along with "187," "Bodybag" (or "Body Bag") landed Lil Boosie in deep water when police and state prosecutors in Boca Raton attempted to link it to a murder he was alleged to have contracted. Boosie may not have ordered the murder of Terry Boyd, but he should certainly be indicted for the murder of the Queen's English. This song is replete with the dreaded N word - ending in the de rigueur a - and another word of which mother is the polite half. Irving Berlin, Cole Porter and a galaxy of other American songwriters must be spinning in their graves. >>
