Rapper, Lil’ Boosie is finally a free man after being incarcerated in the Louisiana’s Angola State Penitentiary for five years.

The 31 year old Boosie, whose real name Torrence Hatch, has had a number of charges against him. The first in 2008 when he was arrested on October 22 after Baton Rouge sheriff’s deputies found marijuana and a gun in his car. On September 22, 2009 he pled guilty to third-degree possession and was sentenced to 2 years in prison.

Boosie violated his probation while awaiting sentencing and was stuck with double the sentence on November 10, being placed on house arrest between the time of his plea and sentencing.

On June 17, 2010 Boosie was then indicted on federal charges on first-degree murder of Terry Boyd. As well as facing three counts of possession with intent to distribute narcotics, three counts of “conspiracy to commit possession with intent to distribute narcotics,” and two counts of “conspiracy to introduce contraband into a penal institution.” Boosie insists he is innocent of these charges and on June 28, 2010, he pleased not-guilty.

In November 29, 2011 Lil Boosi was sentenced to eight years in state prison for the drug charges and nearly six months later he was found not-guilty by a jury on the murder charges.

After originally being revealed that his release date would be August 18, 2014, Boosie was released early last night (Wed, March 5) at 7.10pm.

Not wasting any time, Boosie tweeted nearly immediately after he was released #TD2CH. A subtle plug for his song Touched Down To Cause Hell.
