Rapper Lil Boosie has been released from a Louisiana State Penitentiary, according to Hollywood Life. Lil Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, had been there since 2009 after being charged with third degree possession of marijuana. Lil Boosie was supposed to remain behind bars for at least another four years. He was released on March 5 and will be on parole until 2018.

Following his first arrest in 2009, Lil Boosie was caught trying to sneak drugs into jail. This increased his time in jail from four years to 13 years. Then, in 2010, Lil Boosie was accused of murdering Terry Boyd. He pled not guilty and found innocent in 2012. His brother, who is also his manager, was hoping for release in February, but settled for March.


“Spin” magazine spoke to Lil Boosie in 2013 via email.

“I’ve coped by knowing in my heart that I’m someone special who many people love,” he told the magazine. “If you lose hope in yourself, you’ll make your time hard. I always felt that my mission wasn’t complete. I feel I haven’t reached the star power that was destined for me. That makes me keep writing and thinking of ways to better myself as a man and artist. When it feels like the world is on my shoulders, I look at my pictures from when I was free and it gives hope and determination to pushing.”

Lil Boosie said that he wants his music to help younger fans, since he has three of his own children.

“The state painted my music wrong,” Boosie said. “My music is violent, but not all of it. I have songs about God, my kids, and telling other people’s kids to chill out and go to school and do right. My violent music helps most kids avoid that street life because it scares them. My fans aren’t blind to the consequences.”

Lil Boosie also told the magazine that he has written roughly 500 songs while in prison.

“I have about 500 songs at the moment. I’m ready to get in the studio with the best producers. I feel that I’m making the best music I’ve ever made,” he said. “The more I go through in life the better my music gets and it’s been crazy the last three years. I keep my music heartfelt and stick to making real music. I wouldn’t even say it’s hip-hop music. My music is ‘reality rap.’ Hip-hop music can make you dance and bob your head, but it can’t make you cry or touch your heart like reality rap.”
