Lil Boosie is a free man after being released from a Louisiana State Penitentiary. The rapper had been behind bars since 2009 on drug charges, but was released early on Wednesday evening.
A rep for the penitentiary says Boosie will be on parole until 2018. Warden Burl Cain said the time and date of Hatch’s release wasn’t made public “just to keep everything calm.”
The 31-year-old was initially serving time on a marijuana charge, but was busted attempting to smuggle drugs into prison, which led to his sentence being extended.
During his imprisonment, he faced numerous accusations, including a highly publicized murder trial in the 2009 killing of Terry Boyd. Hatch was acquitted of first-degree murder in Boyd’s death in May 2012.
