Lil Boosie has been behind bars since 2009. He was first jailed for a probation violation and marijuana possession charge, but his sentence was extended after pleading guilty to attempting to smuggle narcotics into prison. He was also accused of murder for the 2009 shooting death of 35-year-old Terry Body, but was found not guilty.
While Boosie's rap career slowed while incarcerated, he's remained productive. While inside, he's earned his GED.
