The always controversial and outspoken rapper Boosie Badazz utter yet another troubling statement. He implored people who are addicts to “go back” to doing crack instead of using fentanyl, which is “much stronger.”
Boosie’s reasoning is that fentanyl causes more fatalities, percentage-wise, and that crack addicts have longer life spans by comparison.
The Baton Rouge, Louisiana-born rapper could be responding to the reports by the likes of TMZ (or his industry connections) that stated it’s possible that the pioneering female emcee Gangsta Boo may have died from a drug overdose caused by fentanyl toxicity.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is up to 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine.”
Multiple reports have stated that illicit drugs like powder cocaine and even marijuana have often been laced with fentanyl without the customers’ knowledge.
Boosie did not mention Gangsta Boo by name, but he nevertheless came up with a solution that has folks raising their eyebrows and doing double takes.
“Hey, check this out,” he said as he smoked what appeared to be a blunt. “Too many people are dying f—ing with fentanyl. If you’re going to be an addict, you may need to go back to crack.”
“Crackheads live longer than anybody,” Boosie continued. “You still see them out. That fentanyl s— is way stronger.
The “Wipe Me Down” spitter then wrapped up his short Twitter video by saying, “If you can’t shake it [the addiction], go back to crack. You’re going to be funnier, you’re going to live longer.”
He then shrugged his shoulders and concluded with, “food for thought,” before taking a puff on the blunt.

I don’t think they’re intentionally doing fentanyl. They are getting laced.
