Rapper Lil Boosie’s family maybe coming to a screen near year. The four mother’s of his seven children (ages 4-11) have been shooting the pilot episode of a reality show while Boosie (born Torrence Hatch) was serving his prison sentence.
According to TMZ, the untitled show will focus on the friendships Walnita, Tracey, Trivia, and Gerlissa have formed due to their situation.
If you remember, last year Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo was subject to massive criticism and scrutiny after it was announced that he and his 10 baby mama’s and 11 children would star in a similar show,’ All My Babies Mamas’ on Oxygen.

A petition was launched on Change.org with signees commenting,
Cancel Shawty-Low show aka “My Babies’ Mommas” and all programming which demeans black children, women and stereotypes black men!
Our Children…our Community… Deserves Better.
Ban This Poison.
Cancel This Television Broadcast.
What is the difference between this ministrel show and the others which clog the airwaves without proper balance of the beauty and positive aspects of our community??
THE CHILDREN!….OUR CHILDREN!
The one hour special was eventually scrapped after more than 3,000 people signed a petition. Producers are currently shopping the show to Oxygen and WeTV. No word on if Lil Boosie will be participating on the show. Peep the clip below.
