Lil Boosie is keeping himself occupied as he awaits sentencing in Angola State Penitentiary. He is reported to be communicating with another incarcerated rapper in the Louisiana prison, C-Murder, as they both count down their trial dates.
A few days ago, Lil Boosie plead guilty to three counts of conspiring to smuggle drugs into Dixon and Angola prison and received a sentence of 8 years. Being imprisoned has made him face the reality of his drug addiction, as he said to TMZ, "Don’t worry about me I am getting help with my drug addiction and I am accepting full responsibility for the choice I made."
Lil Boosie has mitigated the isolation by exchanging messages with C-Murder. XXLMag reported from an interview with M-11, “He hasn’t seen him directly, but they send messages to each other.. so, they keep in touch.”
Lil Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch, still faces judgment for a charge of first-degree murder for the death of Terry Boyd. Corey “C-Murder” Miller is making a third appeal to overturn the conviction for the murder of 16-year-old Steve Thomas. The prison in which they are both locked up has been called the "Alcatraz of the South," surrounded on three sides by the Mississippi River.
