Southern rapper Lil Boosie recently spoke on his plans as he prepares for a one-year prison sentence next month and revealed his intent to drop a new album just days after he is released.
According to Boosie, the 2010 project will be called Free At Last.
"I gotta go away for, like, ten months to a year," Boosie said in an interview. "It's just a minor setback for a major comeback. I was gonna take [the police] to trial, but I'm not gonna take them to trial. They offered me a deal. In Louisiana, you can't really win, bruh. So I'm gonna do my year, come back home, step it up even more. I leave on November 9. I turned in the album this [week] to Warner Bros. It's gonna be called Free At Last. It'll drop the week I come home. It's gonna be crazy. Crazy, man." (MTV)
Boosie previously assured fans about returning from his sentence as a more motivated emcee.
"It's just a minor setback," Boosie said in an interview. "I am not even a convicted felon and they are giving me time. Before I take them to trial, I am going to take my year like a real man and come back home and let that boost my career move. It's just crazy how the Louisiana court system works." (All Hip Hop)
The rapper was given his prison sentence last month.
"Local rapper Torrence 'Lil Boosie' Hatch pleaded guilty this afternoon to drug and gun charges," a WAFB reporter said in an evening broadcast. "Lil Boosie was scheduled to stand trial this coming Monday but entered a plea deal today to avoid trial. Deputies last fall reportedly seized a bag of marijuana, a cigar containing the drug and a gun from Boosie's car. The 26 year-old rapper was sentenced to two years of prison time, however, Lil Boosie could serve as little as one year depending on his behavior while he's locked up." (WAFB News)
After a Louisiana police officer accused Lil Boosie of attempted bribery in a recent pre-trial hearing related to an arrest last year, SOHH spoke with the rapper to get his side of the story.
"Officer just lied and he said I told him I pulled out a big [roll] of money," Boosie explained. "They tryna blow it up to turn the judge against me. That's just a lie. I always have a big wad of cash and three credit cards, too." (SOHH)
Lil Boosie will reportedly begin his prison sentence November 9th.
