Lil Boosie


in Murder Case

breaking news

Rapper Lil Boosie has been found not guilty of first degree murder ... stemming from the shooting death of a 35-year-old man back in 2009.

Boosie was accused of ordering a hit on the victim ... but after the jury deliberated for roughly 90 minutes, they decided Boosie was not guilty.

Boosie -- who was tried in Baton Rouge, LA -- could have faced life in prison if convicted.

During the case, prosecutors tried to argue that lyrics in one of Boosie's raps proved his role in the murder ... but clearly, the jury didn't buy the argument.

Still, Boosie will not be a free man anytime soon -- he's currently serving an 8-year prison sentence stemming from drug charges.

Let me start off by saying i'm white and this has brought out nothing but racism here in Baton Rouge. Whether you like his music or you don't (and i LOVE me some Boosie) that doesn't mean that he should have spent the rest of his life in jail. They had not one shred of proof that Torence Hatch..Boosie.. had anything to do with putting out a hit on that man. The only thing they had was the killer (Marlo Mike) saying that he did, although they didn't record most of his interrogation (he is only 17 years old). They pressed play hours into it when they got him to tell the story that they wanted him to. On the stand he admitted that they made him say that and that he acted all on his own (he has killed SIX people btw, why would they have taken his word for anything).. Mike hasn't even been to trial yet, but they were quick to send Boosie to trial based on lyrics because they had the words cake, 187, and murk in them (never mentioned Boyd, the victim or anything like that). The district attorney has a very known hatred for Torence Hatch because of lyrics he wrote about him. This was all just a personal attack and nothing more. Haters keep hating, but either way it goes he was found NOT guilty and that's all that matters. This stupidity should have never even made it to court. CASE CLOSED! And for some of the comments, he has 8 children and he takes care of all of them unlike some "men" out there, and he is serving 8 years, but with time he's already served he'll be out in a few more months. I hope he moves the hell away from Baton Rouge, it's not safe for him around here anymore. It isn't safe for anyone anymore. Lil Boosie is a rapper, he makes his money and does a damn good job of it, but that is just a persona. Every singer/artist/rapper out there has one. Don't think that the things he raps about is how he lives his life. That's not Torence Hatch!
