Lil Boosie Pleads Guilty to Drug & Weapons Rap, Sentenced to 2 Years

Baton Rouge rapper Lil Boosie entered a guilty plea earlier today (September 22) on drug and weapons charges stemming from an arrest that occurred last October.

Local Louisiana news network WAFB reports that Boosie was scheduled to go to court this coming Monday, but pleaded guilty today in an effort to avoid trial. He was sentenced to two years in jail, but depending on his behavior he may only have to spend one year behind bars.

“I’m just ready to get all of this behind me and get further along in my career,” he told the station. “I plead guilty, it was in my best interest.”

As previously reported Boosie, born Torrence Hatch, was arrested in Baton Rogue on October 22, 2008 after authorities’ smelled marijuana coming from his car. Upon searching his vehicle, they found a firearm along with a bag of marijuana.

In related news Boosie’s new CD, Superbad, hit stores last Tuesday. The disc is projected to sell anywhere from 24,000 to 50,000 copies in its first week. –Elan Mancini
