Lil Boosie appeared in court today for his initial hearing regarding his first-degree murder charges.

Lasting roughly 2 minutes, the Baton Rouge, Louisiana MC plead not guilty as his lawyer Marcus Allen reiterated to local televison news WAFB,

“He’s not guilty. I think he’s absolutely not guilty. I think he meant what he said. He’s absolutely not guilty. We’re just going to prepare for his defense and get ready to address the charges.”

With the murder case pending as well as drug charges, District Attorney Hillar Moore stated,

“I’d rather wait for the evidence to speak as to what happened. He’s got several different cases, so it depends on which one you’re talking about. He also has the introduction of the drugs into the prison and obviously, he’s presumed innocent at this point.”

As previously reported, the 27-year-old rapper and two men, Michael Louding and Adrian Pittman, who were also charged with first degree murder, fired shots into Terry Boyd’s home killing him and allegedly were in possession of ecstasy, codeine and marijuana.

Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, could face the death penalty if convicted and is due back in court in October.
