Incarcerated Lil Boosie May Face Murder Charges
Louisiana rapper Lil Boosie, who is currently serving a four-year sentence for drug and gun possession, just received some bad news. The 26-year-old is allegedly set to face murder charges over a $30,000 hit he put out on Louisiana emcee Nussie, who was murdered in February 2009.
Nussie, born Chris Lynell Jackson, was murdered with a gunshot to the head, with Boosie suspected as one of the primary suspects in the incident. But Baton Rouge's Michael Louding was originally charged with the slaying as well as four other murders, facing five counts of first degree murder, one count of second degree murder and two counts of attempted first degree murder.
Boosie, who began serving his prison sentence in September '09, was originally nabbed after he was pulled over and arrested for possessing marijuana and a gun, quickly sentenced to two years in prison. But after Louisiana Judge James Moore discovered that Boosie had violated probation while awaiting his sentencing, he doubled his prison term.
If found guilty for the murder of Jackson, Boosie will most likely face the death penalty. Boosie's most recent release, 'Superbad: The Return of Boosie Bad Azz,' hit retail on September 15, 2009, debuting at Number 7 on the Billboard 200 in its first week and selling more than 100,000 copies to date.
