Oh snap! Lil Boosie will be coming home a little sooner than we all expected!
A few months ago, we reported on Rolling Stone contributor Jeff Weiss tweeting that he had gotten word that Boosie would be getting out of jail at some point in 2014, and now we’re hearing that the 31-year-old incarcerated rapper’s release date will be specifically in
According to NOLA, Boosie’s release date is listed within the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections as
August 18th 2014 May 16th 2014, and after he’s sprung from prison, he will be under court supervision for an additional three years.
As we’ve previously reported, Boosie (real name: Torrence Hatch) was acquitted of ALL first-degree murder charges for the shooting death of 35-year-old Terry Boyd. Boyd’s shooter Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding was sentenced to life in prison without parole for the murder.
Despite being free of the murder charges, Boosie was set to serve 8 years for attempting to sneak drugs into two Louisiana State prisons … but it looks like Boosie is being cut a pretty good deal! We know has a lot of shit to say and we can’t wait to hear it.
And now, for the obligatory Boosie celebration GIFs:
UPDATE: Lil Boosie’s brother Taquari Hatch tweeted from the rapper’s official Twitter account that Boosie could be released from prison as early as February 16th 2014, instead of the previously reported date of August 2014.

Taquari told NOLA.com that Boosie’s early release is due to him participating various programs while incarcerated. His OFFICIAL release date is set for May 16th, but, again … he could be out by February. All he has to do is complete two classes at the Louisiana State Penitentiary and he’s outta there!
