Lil Boosie Speaks On His Daily Life In Prison
The incarcerated rapper reveals what it's like behind bars and his plans to ditch Louisiana when he gets released.
Lil Boosie has faced several difficulties while behind bars for his murder case, with Louisiana State most recently plotting to sell his home. But the rapper is holding up in Angola prison, speaking with XXLMag.com about how some days are better than others.
“Some days I’m maintaining, but I’m missing my family and the life I had out there,” he said. “My first seven months I was in population, but since June I’ve been on 23-hour lockdown. [...] They said they’re trying to protect me because of who I am. [...] They got people get stabbed here, killed here. Pretty rough people here. A lot of rats here, snitches.”
Additionally, his time in the clink has given perspective on his incarceration, claiming that cops maliciously targeted him and his record label. “[I'm here] ’cause of the songs I made, before I was indicted, about the police in Baton Rouge and what’s going on here,” he continued. “There’s a lot with our record label, that the system don’t like… They took my hard drive out of my house after I got arrested. I have albums for days in there. They still haven’t returned it. They’ve had it for damn near a year now. I need that music.”
Once he gets out of prison, he plans on getting out of the south. “I’m leaving Louisiana the first day I get out of prison,” he said. “I’m a major target down here. I’ll thank God for everything and get back to the money.”
