Rapper Lil Boosie, best known for appearing on hits like “Wipe Me Down” and “Independent,” was sentenced to four years in prison yesterday for violating probation. Already set for a two year stint for possession of marijuana and illegal firearms, the sentence was doubled when his ankle bracelet revealed he’d repeatedly broken the conditions of his house arrest. His latest album, Superbad: The Return of Boosie Bad Azz, was released less than two months ago.
Attending last month’s BET Hip-Hop Awards with his daughter (pictured above), Boosie appeared defiant, believing he’d only be in prison for a year. “It’s just a minor setback for a major comeback. I was gonna take ‘em to trial, but I’m not gonna take them to trial. They offered me a deal. In Louisiana, you can’t really win, bruh. So I’m gonna do my year, come back home, step it up even more.” Boosie began serving his term immediately after yesterday’s court hearing.
