Lil Boosie’s Vladtv interviews are the gift that keep on giving. In the series that currently spans 28 videos, he shares his thoughts on everything from mispronouncing both Mark Zuckerberg and Kamala Harris names to President Donald Trump not pardoning Corey Miller. Most recently he shared his thoughts on Lori Harvey’s sex life.
Well before his viral Vlad segments, Boosie came under fire for comments he made against Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Unions 12 year old child Zaya, who came out as transgender last year.
In a since deleted instagram rant last February, Boosie addressed Wade directly saying he’d “gone to far” and to not let his child identify as a girl.
“Don’t cut his d–k off, bruh. Like, bruh, for real, if he gonna be gay, let him be gay. But don’t cut his d–k off, bruh. Don’t dress him as a woman, dawg. He’s 12 years old. He’s not up there yet. He hasn’t made his final decisions yet. Don’t cut his f—ing d–k off, Dwyane Wade.” he pleaded with the NBA legend.
“At 12 they don’t even know what they next meal gon’ be. They don’t have sh– figured out yet,” he said. “He might meet a woman at 16 and fall in love with her.”
He immediately came under fire from people from all over, especially those in the LGBTQIA+ community.
He sat down with Mike Tyson this past October for an episode of Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson, where the boxing icon grilled him on his comments. While Boosie went on to apologize and the two shared a decent conversation, according to Tyson’s own Vladtv interview, things could have went very different.

Present for their sit down was Tyson’s child Ramsey Tyson, who identifies as trans-masculine and non-binary . Ramsey was the one who inspired Tyson to take on the interview in the first place. According to Tyson, Ramsey fly out specifically for it, and was ready to lay into Boosie for his comments.
Speaking with Vlad, Tyson said “I thought she came to see her father and step mother, she came to conform him physically. I had to take care of that, she wanted to grab this guy and attack this guy.” Tyson described Ramsey as violent and angry.
When asked about their interaction, Boosie said “it didn’t go as bad as i thought it was gonna go.” When asked by the interviewer if he was intimidated by Ramsey and if they were “bigger than him”, Boosie responded “nah, she was just, you know. she a butch. you know how they be built. like a d*ke.”
Boosie says he and Ramsey got a chance to talk. “First [Mike] didn’t want let her interview me. When he told me the situation, i said bring her in here. Everything she asked me I came at her with it. I came at her also. she asked me questions, i asked her questions.”
