Boosie Badazz Embraces Marine Combat Veteran & Magic Occurs

Much is not known about Boosie’s time in prison and the people who “held him down.” These relationships will never be fully understood by the public and were very instrumental in his eventual release. One of these people was Quante Eggleston, a combat veteran that had taken an enemy improvised explosive device (I.E.D.) to the face during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Quante met Boosie through his ambassadorship with U Hatin? University, a nationwide program dedicated to working with schools on eliminating bullying.

Quante had felt like Boosie was being “bullied” by the system and while he was behind bars. They communicated and hit it off through phone calls and letters. They became so close that Quante helped take Boosie’s family under his wing. He did things like record music with his oldest daughter Iviona who was also active in U Hatin?. That led to him taking her to perform a community anthem song called “Change this World Together” at President Obama’s Ambassador’s Ball during his 2nd inauguration. Quante is thanked on the insert of Boosie’s first official album after his release, “Touch Down to Cause Hell.”

One of the topics that Boosie and Quante have in common is music. Quante is an outstanding R&B singer and songwriter. They would share lyrics through letters and on phone calls and one of Boosie’s favorite things to say to Quante about his songs was “when I get out I am going to eat off of this one.” Being a man of his word Boosie has been “marinating” on Quante’s music and he worked hard on deciding which song would be the first one that they would create together. Boosie heard club banger after club banger and R&B love songs that according to him are “straight hits” but he wanted the first song to be one that really touched people. He wanted to do a song that motivated and inspired people to overcome obstacles in life, and one that his fans and new fans would listen to over and over again. The song that they decided on is called Elevate, produced by Nicholas Minter, who has recently worked with Kandi Burruss, Jazze Pha, and Trouble.

Both of these men understand overcoming obstacles and you will see that Boosie is being administered insulin and never slows down for a second while he is writing. This demonstrates tremendous focus and everyone that views this footage will agree that Quante and Boosie elevated one another.

The official music video is coming soon…
