Earlier this week it was reported that Lil Boosie pled guilty to drug charges and was sentenced to eight years in prison as a result. Now, reports have surfaced that the Baton Rouge MC is locked up alongside Louisiana rapper C-Murder in Angola State Penitentiary, and, according to M-11 of Tru Records, the two incarcerated emcees have been communicating with each other regularly while awaiting their appeals.

"He said, he told me they send messages to each other," M-11 said during an interview. "He hasn't seen him directly, but they send messages to each other.. so, they keep in touch."

Lil Boosie, born Torrence Hatch, pled guilty to three counts of conspiring to bring drugs into a penal institution on Tuesday (November 29) during a pre-trial motion at district court. Investigators said he tried to smuggle drugs into Dixon Correctional Center once and into Angola State Penitentiary twice.

Boosie recently released a statement to TMZ stating he wants to focus on kicking his drug habit now that he'll be serving time.

"Don’t worry about me I am getting help with my drug addiction and I am accepting full responsibility for the choice I made," he wrote. "I am going to fight the false murder charge till the end. Love you all."—Ralph Bristout
