Lil Boosie “Zoom”

Two absolute beasts in Southern rap, Lil Boosie and Young Buck, come to the Statehouse Convention center tonight. No one typically comes out for big-name rap acts — I saw Pimp C a couple years back in the convention center with like 150 other folks — but Boosie, who Pimp co-signed five or six years ago and who, somehow, manages to sound 12 and really menacing at once, might be enough of a force here to pack em in. Young Buck, from Nashville, is one of the South’s finest, but his cred might’ve been damaged in recent months after his relationship with G-Unit dissolved and 50 Cent leaked a taped phone call of Buck crying. Which, you know, IS NOT gangsta. Whatever, Cashville forever. 7 p.m., $22.
