Just a few days ago, rapper Lil Boosie was released from prison after serving time at the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola. Jumping back into the spotlight, the MC held a press conference today (March 10). During the press conference, Boosie addressed everything from his experience in prison to what fans can expect from him this year.
One of the topics he spoke on included how his time in prison got harder once the non guilty verdict was announced.
“At that point, the security got like hateful towards me,” Boosie said. “So, any little minor thing that had my name in it or any small thing, they would take good time from me. So, it kinda got harder after that part. Having people be so hateful towards you because of the verdict. So, people probably thought when I won that it was easy. It was a big burden off my back, but it’s harder when you trying to go home and people keep messing with you. And I was feeding into it sometimes too. Cause I don’t like people to talk to me any kind of way and do me any kind of way, but at a certain point I had to just say ‘I can’t do nothing about it. I’m just gonna not say nothing.’”
Boosie then described the scene when he first found out he was being released.
“My lawyer, my mama, they knew. I finished my class on Wednesday, so I was supposed to get emergency release,” he said. “So, when Wednesday came I finished the class and the warden came and saw me. And I was like—I thought he was finna tell me to get my stuff. I was finna go. He was like ‘You not getting out til Friday.’ So, I was like ‘okay.’ I went on ‘head and went to sleep. I was mad. But they knew that the whole time I was finna get out. So, they came woke me up, ‘Let’s go.’ I thought I was dreaming at first, you know. So, they surprised me. They got me good. I don’t think they wanted the media to pick up on it as fast as they did. I was just happy.”
