Boosie Comes From a Big Not-so-Happy Family — Here's Why He's Suing His Brother for Millions

Boosie Badazz is one of seven children and has eight kids of his own. Here are details on his siblings — including the one he's suing for millions.


Dec. 6 2023, Published 2:36 p.m. ET

Boosie, real name Torrence Ivy Hatch, debuted in the ’90s as part of a group called Concentration Camp. He was taken under the wing of Houston rappers Pimp C and Bun B to further develop as a solo artist. His career exploded when he joined Pimp C’s Trill Entertainment. He collaborated with other Trill artists for the 2003 release of Ghetto Stories and the 200’s release of Gangsta Musik.

It's a well-known fact that Boosie isn't just a heavy-hitter in southern hip-hop, he's a pro in the delivery room, too. And the father of eight embraces fatherhood wholeheartedly.

With hard work and determination, Boosie managed to recreate the large family that he had growing up. But who are Boosie's brothers and sisters? Read for details on what we know about them!

Who are Boosie's siblings? Details!

It's not surprising that Boosie has a big family given he grew up with several siblings of his own. Boosie has 7 brothers and sisters and there is little information about all but one — the rapper's younger brother, Taquari Hatch, also known as TQ.

Over the years, there have been rumors of beef between the brothers and we can confirm that their feud has yet to come to an end. In fact, the two are embroiled in a nasty legal, years-long legal battle.

Boosie Badazz suing his brother — here's an breakdown of their $10 million beef.

Back in 2017, TMZ reported that Taquari Hatch was arrested and booked for identity theft and fraud charges after he allegedly used Boosie’s identity to steal money from the rapper.

A year prior, Boosie's bank account was hacked and he had no idea who did it. At the time, Boosie told the public that there was $351,000 missing from his account after his ID was stolen from him two years prior. There were several transactions with eight different aliases. He was able to get some but not all reversed.

Little did he know, the culprit was his flesh and blood. Taquari reportedly transferred up to $80,000 at a time from Boosie's account to people he knew would return the money in cash. This scheme was running smoothly until Taquri tipped off the fraud department by mentioning Boosie’s non-existent wife.

To make matters worse, Boosie accused Taquari and rapper Yung Bleu of forging his signature on a $10 million contract.

Needless to say, the sibling rivalry has left their family divided. Right in the middle of it all is their mom.

Who are Boosie Badazz's parents?

Boosie was born to his mother, Connie Hatch, who was a teacher, and father, Torrence Hatch Sr., who died when Boosie was 13 years old. Boosie explained in an interview that losing his father during his formative years was life-changing.

“I lost it. I became somebody who was desperate for money, and trying to do this so that my mom could have money and help her out," he said. "I came up in the crack era. I sold crack to my own family members.”

Despite the controversy amid the family, we sure hope the Hatch family heals — because nobody wins when the family feuds.
