Rapper Lil Boosie has been in prison since November 2009. He has been indicted for first degree murder for the October 2009 shooting death of Terry Boyd. Lil Boosie may receive the death penalty according to a district attorney. Prosecutors also indicted Lil Boosie of conspiring with a girlfriend, another inmate and a former correctional officer of smuggling in synthetic marijuana, marijuana pills and codeine into the prison. In an interview with The Poster magazine Boosie’s mother Connie Hatch speaks out her son’s incarceration.
On Boosie being locked in a cell for 23 hours a day and not able to have any contact with others.
“He’s always locked down,” said Hatch. “For example, a three-way call – he’s locked down for that. And most inmates make three-way calls. He’s locked down for another inmate taking a picture of him – [the inmate] sent it to his girlfriend and the girlfriend put it on the Internet. Whether or not the other inmate was punished, I don’t know. But because of these two incidents Torrance has been locked down since June. From June until December. No telephone calls, no contact, no store. He’s locked up in the cell for 23 hours. The only time he comes out is one-hour a day.”

On Jeezy being the only rapper to reach out to her and Boosie’s labelmates Webbie, Foxx and Lil Phat have been profiting off his bid in the bing by hosting “Free Boosie” concerts, which falsely claim to contribute funds to the rapper’s family.
“Not one rapper [has called], she explained. “The only person I have spoken with is Young Jeezy. I heard from him but he hasn’t done anything as of yet. But the rest of them, you hear from them, but when you call them, they know my number so they don’t respond. My child was not like that. He gave to everybody.”
She added, “Ever since Torrance has been in jail they have been giving ‘Free Boosie Concerts.’ We haven’t reaped any money from any ‘Free Boosie Concerts.’ Not any. Not even his children. They have people thinking that this concert is being sponsored to help Torrance. I contacted them about nine months ago and one of the guys told me it’s not true. But I found out because I received flyers from people in different states.“
