Fans waiting for Lil Boosie to come home from prison will have to wait just a little bit longer. According to reports, the New Orleans rhymer’s release date has been postponed.

As we previously reported, Boosie was expected to walk out of Louisiana State Penitentiary on Feb. 13. Now it looks like he will be released in March.

On Friday (Feb. 7), L.A. Weekly reporter Jeff Weiss, who has spent time interviewing Boosie for Rolling Stone magazine, went on Twitter to give an update on his release date.

The Baton Rouge rhymer has been incarcerated since 2009, after being arrested for violating his probation. His sentence was then extended after he pleaded guilty for smuggling contraband into the facility.

Once Boosie is released from prison, he will be placed on supervised probation until June 17, 2018. According to his brother, Taquari Hatch, the rapper will spend most of his time in the studio and prepping a tour.

“He has plans to go straight to the studio to begin working on an album as well as his tour in late spring, early summer,” he said.
