What Boosie Claims
“It don’t get any dirtier than that. Then he did it two or three times. Mayne, forgery ain’t no game, mayne,” Boosie Badazz said.
Boosie Badazz also noted that he had both the alleged forged contracts and his authentic signature examined by experts, and the comparisons concluded that his assumption was correct.
The brothers have been arguing online since August, with fans being introduced to the private matter unfolding on Instagram. TQ officially posted on his Stories to express how disheartened he is with Boosie Badazz, whose real name is Torrence Ivy Hatch Jr.
On Nov. 12, TQ posted on social media that he did not commit a multimillion-dollar contract forgery, saying that his brother has betrayed him.
“I’m trying to keep it positive but What I’m witnessing with my brother is the dirtiest sh-t l’ve ever seen. Lying on social media, throwing me under the bus for paperwork we agreed on, then years later, claiming forgery for money (a lick) ?!” he wrote.
“NOW painting a negative picture of my mama like he was treated unfairly or like she ever did ANYTHING to him. He’s going to be PUNISHED for this sh-t.”
This tit-for-tat has been going on for awhile. On Aug. 25, HipHopDX reported that Boosie Badazz was starting to distrust Yung Bleu and TQ, threatening to expose the Mobile, Alabama, native as a “con artist” alongside his brother.
“Asked about when I jumped out on ’em with that bat and ran his ass down Canal Street. When him and Bleu stole from me the first time. See y’all don’t know about that. I made Bleu give me 30k. N-gga been stealing bro. I thought that shit was over with bro. Them n-ggas con artists bro,” Boosie posted on social media.
The accusatory post continued, “That was 2016 when that happened. Your own brother bro. Cain and Abel. They’re partners in crime. TQ and Yung Bleu, don’t it rhyme? They got make me post them pictures. Expose their b—h-a–. That’s what they’re gonna make me do. They talking about they don’t owe me nothing but that 2.5 million. Can’t even go by and pay me that? … Them n-ggas went in there and forged my name. It’s sad bro, I don’t talk to no TQ. That dude is a con artist. That’s what he is a con artist.”
Yung Bleu had previously discussed his conflicts with Boosie Badazz in a 2020 interview with HipHopDX. He revealed that even after allowing him to leave the label, he gave Boosie a percentage of the profits from the albums that he owed Bad Azz Music Syndicate. Despite his issues with his former mentor, he said he remains “Bad Azz for life.”
