Rapper Lil Boosie Speaks About Prison Life and How Technology Has Changed
NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Lil Boosie spoke to the media for the first time in five years Monday at a press conference in New Orleans. Before the rapper took the stage and sat on one of two golden chairs, his lawyers answered questions from the media about his arrest and probation.
Torrence Hatch (aka Lil Boosie) entered prison in 2009 after he pleaded guilty to marijuana possession. He also faced life in prison for the murder of Terry Boyd, but a jury acquitted him in 2012.
At the event titled #BoosieSpeaks Hatch answered questions from the crowd that ranged from whether or not he had conjugal visits in prison to if he knew what instagram is. But the technology that surprised Boosie the most was FaceTime.
“I was surprised that on my iphone you could look at people and talk on the phone… the world’s a changin’,” he told the crowd.
While many fans were excited to see Boosie, others were critical, saying Boosie’s record label, Atlantic, promotes bad life choices.
