Nothing wrong w/ that. It's never too late to get your education.

Congratulations to this young man. Regardless of his situation, he obtained his GED.

Good news for sure. Its not too late until you RIP. A GED is nothing to be ashamed of, its a good look, because going back isnt easy for everybody. I hope the positivity from this experience will bless every aspect of his life.

People are rushing to get GEDs because the standards are changing. If you don't have a diploma or a GED, try to get one now. The proverbial bar is about to be raised and many are about to be left behind.

It's a shame that the only reason that he is doing something positive with his life is because he can't do nothing else. It's not like he can go sit on the front porch and watch the girls walk by. I expect him to have a college degree when he gets out,that way he can make sure that he knows how to keep a count of his money. Again damn shame.

Good for him. At least he's doing something productive with his time in prison. And for you folks who are mocking him, shame on you! At least the man is trying to do something to turn his life around!

Good for him and I hope hes learning real English, but pray tell--what is Boosies government name? Cuz that degree will end up in "file 13" if its as trifling as his stage name.

@1:49 WTF??? You aint got NO BUSINESS calling ANYBODY a dumb ass! Especially with thiat DUMB ASS comment you made. Dumb BITCH, A CHILD is anyone UNDER THE AGE OF 18! And whoever posted that comment was right! That nigga should NOT get props for doing something he should have done AS A CHILD!!!!!! Especially since lil Boosie ass prolly dropped out of school in the 9th grade! THATS WHEN HE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN HIS GED!!!!...AS A CHILD!!!!!

WOW, his GED huh, that qualified him to get a job mopping floors somewhere. Even an Associates Degree is worthless nowadays, what does he think a GED will get him. Unless he starts a business of his own, that's a useless piece of paper. Nice try though.......

from gangster to generic diploma no friends on the picture no girlfriend must be a fucked up person when he was free

That's all fine and dandy, but look where he is getting his education!!! o-0

*sigh* I'm tired of brothers being locked up for dumb shit when they are desperately needed on the outside. IJS.

Good for him but it's kind of lame in this era to be some sort of big deal for a person, no matter what their gender is to get a dang G.E.D. C'mon now, this ain't the 60s and 70s you were just being slack for no good reason, IMO.

You get GED at 17/18 which would make you a child on the verge of adulthood. The person who mentioned the child comment was correct. Sad that in the black American community getting a GED is something to celebrate!

Dang, RWS - this is now old news. Your peer bloggers blew this up a few days ago.

Next.

@3:25 A G.E.D. is not a useless piece of paper, It's only useless if you let it be. Judge Mathis got his G.E.D. and went on to become a successful judge before the reality tv show. But I do think the only reason Boosie got it cause he was in jail. Are you gonna post bout his 4 baby mommas getting their own reality show?

eat a dick 1:49. 1:27 is right stop giving cats credit for shit they should have been doing. he had resources to complete it on the outside but chose to act like a knuckle head sambo pumping that bull shit out in the radio. Now that he has had a chance to sit down maybe he has changed and all the other young brothers who followed him before can follow him now. However this clown did it be inspired that ANYONE can do it.

These folks in this photo are cheesing and gripping this diploma like this dude just graduated from Howard University with a Master's degree in Business.
This reminds me of a Chris Rock joke when he said black folks go out the way and have big celebrations i.e. BBQ's, parties when a family member gets out of prison, but when a family member graduates from college people are like, Oh,OK. Anyway, I'm glad this dude got his GED. Better late than never.

@5:23 Yea but was your mother a convicted felon?? Didn't think so. Not trying to rain on his parade but your suppose to do this shit BEFORE you become virtually unemployable because of a dumb ass felony conviction.

this is sad and the last time I will visit this site it makes no sense how people down others a GED my not be anything to you but to him it means that he finally accomplished something in a society that says you're not smart unless you have this paper let me tell you I know plenty of people with master degrees from great universities that got by by copying peoples papers paying people to do there work and other tactics some don't even know why they went to school they can barely form a sentence at least him having this will allow him to further his education if he wants to it's not your life to live if you have your hs diploma and a college degree good for you hope you making all the money hope it makes you happy but honestly a degree isn't getting people by it's money and if you don't have that then you don't have a wall to hang that shit on I know someone that went to college did the right thing never got in any trouble have a masters and can't get a job paying more than 10/hr sit back and think about your life quit judging and being down on people only on urban blogs on white blogs they don't do that to each other they do it to us oh and I know I did't punctuate i'm on my phone and when I try to go back or punctuate it messes up and auto correct stuff and change words

@12:49 AM thank you!

9:09 No ones really downing him all their really saying is he only got it cause he was in prison. It's just for show cause when he's released I highly doubt he going to put it to use and further his education by going to college. Like why go back and get a G.E.D. after all these years if your not going to use it?
