Lil Boosie Sentenced To Two Years In Jail

Looks like being "superbad" has garnered a degree of punishment that's likely more serious than Lil Boosie bargained for when he created the pseudonym.

Lil Boosie has been sentenced to two years in jail as a result of the guilty plea he entered on Tuesday afternoon (September 22). Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, was slated to stand trial on Monday, but reached a plea deal with the DA.

The sentence stems from a case related to an arrest involving the rapper last fall which resulted in gun and drug charges. The rapper was pulled over by police where a gun, marijuana and a cigar laced with an unknown drug was found during the routine vehicle search.

According to police reports, Boosie approached deputies in his Dodge Challenger while on the road in East Baton Rouge Parish. Claiming there was a scent of marijuana coming from the vehicle, authorities reportedly approached the 26 year old rapper who, in turn, refused to step out of his car and then proceeded to drive away. Stopping him from escaping, Boosie was eventually arrested by deputies and placed into Parish Prison on counts of marijuana possession, possession of a firearm with a controlled dangerous substance and attempting to run from law enforcement.

When asked about the motive behind his decision, the southern rapper claimed that the quicker he can put his actions in the past, the better. "I'm just ready to get all of it behind me and get further on with my career," Boosie said. "I plead guilty in my own best interest."

The rapper could get out in a year on good behavior.
