Six men were arrested in New Orleans yesterday (November 30) for protesting the incarceration of Lil Boosie and the forthcoming prison sentence of local rapper Lil Wayne.

According to The Times-Picayune, an off-duty police officer witnessed the suspects spray-painting “Free Lil Wayne” on the side of a building in the French Quarter, putting up a banner in Boosie’s behalf blocks away and placing police barricades and garbage cans in the street to block traffic.

They were all charged with disturbing the peace, resisting arrest by flight and criminal damage to property.

As previously reported Boosie is currently serving time for marijuana possession and Weezy is expected to be sentenced to a year behind bars after pleading guilty to gun possession charges last October. —Elan Mancini
