“Mane,” a lady said on Facebook. Taz Hayes’ lil moma is dead incorrect, and she’s been tormenting my baby cuh for a minute. Taz got fed up and just turned off the shhh since she was a Supa player in the scenario. I’m not going to go out of my way to get a bottle to balance out the defensive weapon. With that glass bottle, she could’ve injured her eye or done anything worse, so I would’ve pulled mine as well. #Lilboosie#Setitoff#Selfdefense.”
