Lil Boosie has revealed details behind his upcoming album Incarcerated, which will be released as he serves a four-year sentence for drug possession and awaits trial for 1st-degree murder.
Boosie, born Torrence Hatch, was sentenced to prison after police arrested the rapper in October 2008 and found marijuana and a gun in his vehicle.
In June of 2010, as he was serving his sentence for the guns and drugs, the district attorney’s office indicted Lil Boosie on 1st degree murder charges, for allegedly hiring gunmen to shoot and kill a 35-year-old Baton Rogue man named Terry Boyd in December of 2009.
Lil Boosie claimed the charges against him were the result of a conspiracy against Hip-Hop music.
“I’m innocent; I’m completely innocent” stated the rapper. “My situation is one that is unjust, unfair and based on an attack against hip-hop and rap as a whole.”
Incarcerated will contain all new tracks that Boosie recorded just days before he surrendered to authorities in November of 2009.
Additionally, Lil Boosie has reconnected with his Trill Entertainment label to release a new compilation CD this October.
The first single is titled “Turn Tha Beat Up” and funds from the projects will go to the legal defense fund for Boosie and the other men that have been indicted.
“Even through these circumstances my family, labels and fans have stood by me and I thank you for that. My album Incarcerated comes at a real changing point in my life,” Lil Boosie said.
