Boosie Badazz received heavy backlash earlier this month, after a transphobic rant against Dwyane Wade's support for his 12-year-old child Zaya coming out as a transgender girl.

The rapper, however, remains firm on his opinion, despite the haters. In an interview with Baller Alert's Sesh w/ Shirley, Boosie was told he stirred controversy over his "statements about Dwyane Wade's daughter."

"His son," the rapper interrupted. "That’s just how I felt. People gotta understand that's how I feel ... Even my momma got on my ass yesterday. My momma called me early in the morning and got on my ass, talking about, 'Stay off social media! That’s they family! You stay out people's business ...' But I was just speaking how I felt. Everybody got their own opinions in life. Everyone feels a certain type of way about certain things ... When the kids involved, it's tender to my heart."

Boosie went on to note that he's used to hate. "Once you're a celebrity, you gotta be ready for what comes with being a celebrity ... You gotta be ready for the hundred eyes and all that stuff."

When asked if he thinks it's appropriate to tell someone how to raise their children, he replied,  "Not really. But when I feel you're wrong, you're wrong. People have told me how to parent my children when I was wrong."

In his original two cents, shared to Instagram, Boosie pleaded to the NBA star: "Don’t cut his d--k off, bruh. Like, bruh, for real, if he gonna be gay, let him be gay. But don’t cut his d--k off, bruh. Don’t dress him as a woman, dawg. He’s 12 years old. He’s not up there yet. He hasn’t made his final decisions yet. Don’t cut his f---ing d--k off, Dwyane Wade."

Watch the full interview below, with the aforementioned conversation beginning at the 1:50 mark.
