Lil Boosie Concert Was Cancelled Due To Parole Restrictions
Lil BoosieIncarcerated: November 9th, 2009
Released: Mar. 5, 2014
Amount Of Time: 1577 Days
Charge: Possession of marijuana, violating parole, and conspiring to bring drugs into a penal institution
What Happened: Boosie was busted in 2009 on his third weed possession charge, which landed him with a two-year bid, which the judge then doubled when Boosie violated his probation. Everything was doubled again when he pleaded guilty for trying to have drugs smuggled into his prison cell—this while he was fighting a murder rap for the 2009 killing of another local rapper. He stared down the death penalty and won the case, and celebrated with his release last week after five years behind bars.
Boosie may be a free man after over four years in the pen, but Bad Azz isn’t free to travel as he pleases just yet. Boosie was scheduled to perform April 18 at the Jackson County (MS) Fairgrounds as part of Mississippi Gulf Coast Spring Break but due to his parole in Louisiana, Boosie will not be able to cross state lines.
According to reports, county officials say they were informed by the Louisiana Department of Corrections and Parole that Boosie is on travel restriction and could not get approval to travel between now and the concert date.–Peter Walsh
