This a huge blow for Lil Boosie, who is currently preparing to go on trial for murder. A judge in Baton Rouge, Louisiana has ruled that Lil Boosie’s rap lyrics can be used against him in his upcoming trial.
Lil Boosie, born Torrence Hatch, is slated to go on trial for the murder of an East Baton Rouge man named Troy Davis. Boosie and another man are accused of planning and executing Davis’ murder in October 2009.
In a four-hour, pre-trial hearing held yesterday, a judge ruled that three specific lyrics containing the words ‘murk’, ‘187’, and ‘cake’ could be used against Boosie during his trial.
The trial is set to begin set to begin on Monday, April 30. Lil Boosie, who is currently incarcerated in Angola Prison in Louisiana, is facing an automatic sentence of life in prison if he is convicted of Davis’ murder. In addition, Boosie, who was already in jail serving a four-year bid for possession of marijuana, is also serving an eight-year prison sentence for attempting to sneak drugs into two State Prisons in Louisiana.
