Boosie Badazz Embraces Marine Combat Veteran, Quante & Magic

Occurs on the Single, “Elevate”



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.” The song that they decided on is called Elevate, produced by Nicholas Minter, who has recently worked with Kandi Burruss, Jazze Pha, and Trouble. 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 wanted to do a song that motivated and inspired people to overcome obstacles in life. One that his fans and new fans would listen to over and over again.

Many speculate about Boosie’s time in prison or the people who “held him down”. The kind of relationships that will never be fully understood by the public. But, they were very instrumental in his eventual release. One of those people is Quante Eggleston. He was a combat veteran who experienced an enemy-improvised explosive device (I.E.D.) to the face during Operation Iraqi Freedom. He met Boosie through his ambassadorship with U Hatin? University, a nationwide program dedicated to working with schools on eliminating bullying.

Quante and Boosie create an unbreakable bond

Quante had felt like Boosie was being “bullied” by the system, while he was behind bars. They communicated and hit it off through phone calls and letters. They became so close that he helped take Boosie’s family under his wing. He recorded 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.” Be sure to follow Quante on his journey and connect with him on all social networks.
