The Hip Hop community is rejoicing following the release of Louisiana rapper Lil Boosie.
The embattled rap MC was released from the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola Wednesday night after serving four years of an eight-year prison sentence for a drug conviction and probation violation.
Lil Durk welcomed the “Wipe Me Down” rapper home with an IG post.
“Freed my ni**a real drill,” the caption on Durk’s post read.
Lil Durk previously called for the freedom of incarcerated rapper Lil Boosie.
“Free @BOOSIEOFFICIAL,” he wrote.
Boosie, born Torence Hatch, will remain under parole and probation, Louisiana Department of Corrections spokesperson Pam LaBorde told The Times-Picayune.
Lil Boosie has yet to issue a statement following his release. He is set to appear at a press conference Monday, March 10 at 1 p.m. at the W Hotel In New Orleans, according to MTV.
Boosie will remain on probation until 2018.
Boosie will be looking to get his music career back on track following his release.
In September 2013, Rick Ross hinted he would sign Boosie during an interview with “The Breakfast Club.”
“I’ma put a bag on the table for that boy…You never know,” he said.
Gucci Mane is also entering himself in the bidding pool for the incarcerated rapper.
Gucci Mane hinted he has $500,000 on the table for the embattled Southern MC.
“500 cash for boosie,” he wrote.
Lil Boosie has a lot of thought-provoking new music to present to fans upon his release from prison, according to the rapper’s cousin and Trill Ent. member Donkey.
Donkey, who revealed Boosie has “over 50 double albums” worth of songs, says one song that caught his attention was an ode to the late Hip Hop legend Tupac Shakur.
“That man said he got over 50 cds wrote, double albums. Over 50 double albums,” he told Say Cheese TV. “My favorite one is a “Letter To Tupac.”
“…To where he like saluting Pac for passing the torch to him that’s it’s his world now. He ready,” he adds.
Donkey went on to describe Boosie’s growth in prison.
“He done became so business-minded in all this,” Donkey explained. “This has really like opened his eyes to everything. It had made him serious about his craft, about life…I guess value his situation more than what he did.”
Donkey further explained prison was a wake-up call for the “Ghetto Stories” rapper.
“…It took this for him to understand the position that he was in instead of getting a little slap on the wrist cause he had so much,” Donkey continued. “He felt like God prepared him. Cause he ten times bigger now. Like Job, took it away from him, took it away from him and gave him, now he gon have ten times… he way bigger than what he was. But he ready now. Mind-wise, the world in trouble, game over.”,
The “Still Happy” rapper was sentenced to serve four years in prison after violating the terms of his parole in 2009, according to WAFB.
Boosie’s violation stemmed from pleading guilty to a third-offense marijuana possession charge.
Boosie’s legal woes didn’t end there. Boosie had eight additional years tacked onto his prison bid after he was caught smuggling codeine into the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola, according to the Times-Picayune.
Codeine is the primary ingredient used in “Lean,” a drink that provides its user a sedated effect.
Boosie dodged a bullet after he was acquitted of murder in the 2009 murder of Terry Boyd. Boyd’s sister is the mother of Boosie’s child.
The “Independent” rapper was accused of hiring hitman Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding in the slaying. Louding took his street moniker from the menacing character on “The Wire” crime series. Louding, who was 17 at the time, was sentenced to life in prison without parole.
