“Some days I’m maintaining, but I’m missing my family and the life I had out there,” Boosie said. “My first seven months I was in population, but since June I’ve been on 23-hour lockdown.”
“They said they’re trying to protect me because of who I am. They got people get stabbed here, killed here. Pretty rough people here. A lot of rats here, snitches.”
“[I’m here] ’cause of the songs I made, before I was indicted, about the police in Baton Rouge and what’s going on here,” he continued.
“There’s a lot with our record label, that the system don’t like… They took my hard drive out of my house after I got arrested. I have albums for days in there. They still haven’t returned it. They’ve had it for damn near a year now. I need that music.”
“I’m leaving Louisiana the first day I get out of prison,” Boosie said. “I’m a major target down here. I’ll thank God for everything and get back to the money.”
Boosie has been in jail for a year, while waiting to go to trial on murder charges. Boosie could be facing the death penalty,
