Lil Boosie pleaded guilty on drug charges at district court Tuesday morning that was suppose to be for pre-trial motion.
Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, pled guilty to three counts of conspiring to bring drugs into a penal institution, which Judge Mike Erwin sentenced him to eight years in prison for.
Investigators said he tried to smuggle drugs into Dixon Correctional Center once and into Angola State Penitentiary twice.
Supporters for the rapper were seen hanging their heads low once the judge made that statement.
Lil Boosie is also charged with first-degree murder in the death of Terry Boyd.
