Boosie Badazz Claims VladTV Pays Him $500,000 A Year
Boosie Badazz recently disclosed on The Breakfast Club that VladTV contributes significantly to his income, asserting that he receives a substantial $500,000 per year for his appearances on the platform. During the interview, Charlamagne Tha God suggested Boosie start a podcast with Webbie, but Boosie declined, citing his lucrative relationship with VladTV.
Boosie expressed, "Well, I don't want it. Because, yeah, I could make half a million with Vlad every year, man. I don't really need it if it ain't gon’... Vlad help me out a lot more." When Charlamagne questioned the validity of Boosie's claim, asking if he indeed makes $500,000 annually from VladTV, Boosie responded with a confident "Close to it."
This revelation comes months after Boosie shared on a live stream that he commands $40,000 for podcast appearances, emphasizing the safety and financial advantages of this platform over-performing in clubs. Boosie highlighted the lower risks associated with podcasts and how it aligns with his focus on longevity and safety.
The rapper's decision to prioritize podcast appearances over live shows was explained in financial terms, stating, "Would you rather do a show for [$60,000] or podcast for [$45,000]? I made that decision the other day. I took the [$45,000] over the [$60,000]. With the $60, I had to pay for flights, hotels, going to a dangerous-ass city. Shit is about being careful, man. I can sit for 45 minutes on a couch and just talk shit.… That’s a blessing, bro."
As Boosie continues to navigate his career, his strategic choices and financial considerations shed light on the evolving landscape of artists' revenue streams, emphasizing the growing significance of digital platforms like VladTV and podcasts. The rapper's openness about his income sources provides valuable insights into the multifaceted nature of the contemporary music industry.
