Tuesday, Aug 24, 2010 12:00PM
Incarcerated rapper Lil Boosie will not allow jail bars to keep his words from being heard as the rapper's label, Asylum Records, is set to issue a new LP from the Southern rapper as he serves time for drug and murder charges.
According to reports, Incarcerated will hit retail outlets at the end of next month.
The project is mostly produced by B.J., but Mouse on Tha Track did board work as well. Webbie, Foxx and Lil Trill are among the LP's guests. DJ Drama had a chance to get an early preview of the project and said Boosie's impact is immeasurable. "Lil Boosie is one of the most important Southern and street artists of this generation, period," Mr. Thanksgiving applauded. "Boosie always gives you the ghetto in a real and authentic way. The music on Incarcerated lives up to that standard. I hope and pray for Lil Boosie to get through his struggle." (MTV)
The project will serve as a follow-up to last year's The Return of Boosie Bad Azz.

The jailed rapper was indicted on murder charges in June.
Torrence "Lil Boosie" Hatch was indicted in the October 21st shooting death of Terry Boyd. Michael Louding and Adrian Pittman are also indicted on first degree charges on Boyd's murder. East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore says all three of the alleged killers meet the criteria of first degree charges. Moore said that the death penalty is not out of the question. Hatch and girlfriend Walnita Decuir along with a former Dixon Correctional Institute guard and an inmate were also indicted on drug charges. (WAFB News)
Boosie is also being investigated for additional murders.
Two other Baton Rouge men - 17-year-old Michael "Marlo Mike'' Louding and 36-year-old Adrian Pittman - were indicted earlier this month on first-degree murder charges in Boyd's killing. East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore III said investigators are looking into whether Hatch and others were involved in at least five other slayings since early last year. Louding is charged in six murders during that time span, including the February 2009 shooting death of local up-and-coming rapper Chris "Nussie'' Jackson. (2 The Advocate)
