UPDATE: Lil Boosie Found Not Guilty of First-Degree Murder [VIDEO]

Lil Boosie’s fate now  lies in the hands of a Louisiana jury. Both the prosecution and the defense concluded their cases in the rapper’s murder trial Thursday (May 10). Over the six-day trial, prosecutors called a total of 27 witnesses to the stand, while Boosie’s defense team rested their case without calling a witness.  “Based upon the burden of proof lying with the state, the defense rests with the witnesses the state has put on,” said Boosie’s attorney Jason Williams.

Jurors opted to recess rather than go straight into deliberations, and will return Friday (May 10) morning to hear closing arguments. Earlier in the week the man accused of carrying out Boosie’s murder-for-hire, Mike “Marlo Mike” Louding, recanted his alleged murder confession maintaining that he never admitted to police that he shot and killed victim, Terry Boyd. According to Louding, he was with Boosie’s at his house, alongside accused getaway driver, Adrienne Pittman.

The prosecution also played the lyrics to the 29-year-old’s song “187” which they attest, proves that he paid Louding $2,800 to commit the crime. “Yo Marlo/He drive a Monte Carlo/That Itchbay gray, I want that N***a dead today,” Boosie raps on the track. Forensic specialist also investigated Boosie’s hard drive and concluded that he recorded the song one hour before the shooting took place. Also damaging to the image that his lawyers are trying to paint, is the fact that the Louisiana native has an AK-47 inked on his stomach with the words, Yo Boosie Who’s Next?

Boosie, born Torrance Hatch, was indicted on murder charges in 2010.
