Please excuse my inner Duval County that erupted as I was titling this post.
While awaiting trial for charges in the 2009 murder of Terry Boyd, Terrance Hatch a.k.a. Lil’ Boosie was sentenced to eight years in prison for attempting and conspiring to smuggle codeine, affectionately known as “drank”, marijuana and ecstasy into both Louisiana State Penitentiary & Dixon Correctional Institute in Louisiana.
Assistant District Attorney Dana Cummings says Hatch was serving a prison term for a separate conviction for marijuana possession when he smuggled the drugs with help from a prison guard.
State District Judge Mike Erwin in Baton Rouge sentenced him to the new prison term.
Should I feel some type of shame that most of my iPod library contains tunes from felons? Or maybe that just says something about our flourishing music industry? You be the judge, and while you do, join me in my impromptu tribute and salute to Lil’ Boosie.
ON A REAL NOTE: One must really pray for all eight of his children and their mothers during this time. They have dually become the victims in this situation also. No child should have to be without their father, especially during the holidays.
With that being said, let’s try to turn this tragedy into a triumph. Iviona Hatch, Boosie’s eldest child, is now pursuing her music career and has included this message with her new single “Daughter of a King & Queen.”
Lil Boosie Daughter Iviona “Da Princess” Hatch has dedicated this song to her father and all proceeds generated from the sale of “Daughter of a King and Queen” will go to his defense fund.
Da Princess debut record “Daughter of a King & Queen” produced to raise money for her daddy’s defense and inspire people towards a positive way of life. Iviona Hatch has embraced U Hatin?® University’s platform as an Official Ambassador to launch her music career.
Iviona wants her daddy back. Sharing her inherited talent “Iviona rappin now!” At age 10, she is successfully on top of her education and exploding on the music scene with hopes to become a superstar but most importantly help her Daddy Boosie right now!
Mystikal has proven that you can do major fed time and come back out on top by signing to Cash Money last week. Maybe this will serve as a pivotal point of change and redirection for Boosie. Until then, vibe with me!
