Lil Boosie speaks to XXL Magazine from inside the walls of the dark walls of Angola prison in Louisiana.
Boosie talks exclusively to the hip hop magaizne about his frustrations about being locked up, fighting a murder chrage in the first degree and a possibility of facing the death penalty.
Excerpts from XXL magazine interview:
“Some days I’m maintaining, but I’m missing my family and the life I had out there,” Boosie told XXL. “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,” he said. “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.”
According to the East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore, the imprisoned rapper is being linked to five different murders.
“I’m leaving Louisiana the first day I get out of prison,” Boosie said. “I’m a major target down here. I’ll thank God for everything and get back to the money.”
