    Live Review: Baton Rouge rapper Lil Boosie delivers an energetic show at his home away from home
    Before Lil Boosie started his almost five-year prison sentence in November 2009, the Baton Rouge rapper and Atlanta trap MC Gucci Mane were, by far, the most adored rappers in inner-city Baltimore. Gucci's appeal was an easy code to crack: flamboyant and innovative street rap that gave no fucks about mainstream appeal; it was music you rode to, got high to, and laughed about with your friends whenever he came out with a new, ridiculous ad lib. Boosie, on the other hand, was subtler. He struck a chord in the soul of Baltimore City. Save for a few tracks that have been able to penetrate rap radio, Boosie's appeal is almost exclusively from his underground catalogue—one that's filled with elaborate stories of hardship and being the underdog (which Brandon Soderberg touched on last week). Fittingly, those weighted songs are what Baltimoreans connected to the most at the Baltimore Arena this past weekend.
