XXL sat down with Lil Boosie at the Angola prison in Louisiana as he’s fighting a charge of murder in the first degree and a possibility of facing the death penalty.
He talks about his frustrations with the law saying:
“Some days I’m maintaining, but I’m missing my family and the life I had out there. My first seven months I was in population, but since June I’ve been on 23-hour lockdown. They said they’re trying to protect me because of who I am,” he continued. “They got people get stabbed here, killed here. Pretty rough people here. A lot of rats here, snitches”
“[I’m here] ’cause of the songs I made, before I was indicted, about the police in Baton Rouge and what’s going on here. There’s a lot with our record label, that the system don’t like… They took my hard drive out of my house after I got arrested. I have albums for days in there. They still haven’t returned it. They’ve had it for damn near a year now. I need that music. I’m leaving Louisiana the first day I get out of prison. I’m a major target down here. I’ll thank God for everything and get back to the money.”
