During his first press conference after being released from prison earlier this year, Lil Boosie pulled out a massive, ornate throne for the stage. On the surface, it might seem excessive, but in Southern hip-hop — especially in New Orleans and his hometown, Baton Rouge — Boosie is royalty. Since 2000, the rapper has released five studio albums, more than 20 mixtapes, and appeared on countless collaborations with other Southern artists like Webbie, Bun B, Yung Joc, and Three Six Mafia. Boosie came out of Louisiana State Penitentiary and immediately went to work on a new album — expected sometime this year. He's now bringing that throne to Rochester for a show with Chief Keef and Peewee Longway.
Lil Boosie will perform on Saturday, November 1, at Main Street Armory, 900 East Main Street. 8 p.m. $20-$70. Mainstreetarmory.com.
