Incarcerated rapper Lil Boosie may be preparing to show potential interested record companies he is still a top hip-hop artist by keeping his musical craft intact behind bars.
According to Boosie's cousin, the rapper has plenty to offer when he is freed later this year.
Lil Boosie is on his way to freedom and he probably can't wait another minute to taste it all. In the meantime, his older cousin, Donkey, is making sure that fans are kept up to date on the latest happenings with Boosie. Apparently, Donkey has been talking music with Boosie via phone calls and it sounds as though the Louisiana rapper is getting ready to jump back into the game when he is released in a few short weeks. "AFTER HEARING MY NI--A 'BADAZZ' SPIT DAT 'FLAME' TO ME...MMAANN, THIS S--T BOUTA GET REAL!!!!!! #FREEBADBOOSIE #LME," Donkey tweeted on Friday. (Celebs Gather)
Boosie's official release date is in May but the rapper could be headed home within the 45 days.
Taquari Hatch told NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune that a previously reported date of Aug. 18, 2014 wasn't accurate. Due to a slow down in the paperwork process at the Louisiana Department of Safety and Corrections, the automated offender locator system did not yet reflect the time off of his brother's sentence that had been accrued, he said. Torrence Hatch's current date of release is officially set for May 16, 2014, according to Taquari Hatch, thanks to a substance abuse class Torrence Hatch recently completed. Furthermore, Taquari Hatch expects Torrence Hatch will be out Feb. 16, 2014 once the rapper completes two additional classes at the Louisiana State Penitentiary. (NOLA)
Boosie's brother also recently said fans should expect him to immediately head to the studio following his release.
Whenever Torrence Hatch is released, he'll be busy. He's written more than 600 songs in the past four years as well as a book. "He has plans to go straight to the studio to begin working on an album as well as his tour," Taquari Hatch said, who usually visits his brother twice a month. Lil Boosie is already scheduled for a music tour in "late spring, early summer." (NOLA)
Initial reports suggested Boosie would remain behind bars until August.
Rumors have been circulating for months that Baton Rouge rapper Lil Boosie, who has been incarcerated since 2009, would be returning home from prison soon. So far, however, an actual date has just been a matter of speculation. According to New Orleans' NOLA.com, there's now a date people can look forward to: August 18, 2014. That's the date on record with the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections, the publication reported. Based on a separate conversation with Pam Laborde, the agency's communications director, NOLA.com added that Boosie will be under supervision until June 17, 2018. (Complex)
