Rapper Lil Boosie shared some of his experiences while being incarcerated facing murder charges. The Louisiana rapper told XXL that while prison is wearing on him, he has taken the time to reflect on his life and career. He maintains his innocence.
“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.”
Boosie still believes he's been targeted because of his music.
“[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.”
“I’m leaving Louisiana the first day I get out of prison,” Boosie said. “I’m a major target down here. I’ll thank God for everything and get back to the money.”
