For Lil Boosie, the godfather of ratchet, seeing the term’s current ubiquity after being released from prison this spring—not to mention its geographic transplant from the South to the West—must have been Rip Van Winkle levels of trippy (though he has shouted out YG and DJ Mustard in recent interviews). So this move is simultaneously bizarre and totally inevitable: Hurricane Chris—yes, that Hurricane Chris—has recruited Boosie for the remix of his comeback single, “Ratchet,” produced by DJ Mustard himself. If you can recall the pair’s 2009 collaboration “Let’s Get Ratchet,” picture a complete 180°; 2014 is a weird year.
