Lil BoosieBaton Rouge rapper Lil Boosie pleaded guilty to a third-offense marijuana possession charge on Tuesday (September 22), and has been sentenced to two years in prison, reports local TV station WBRZ.

Via an agreement with prosecutors, the 26-year-old rapper (real name: Torrence Hatch) is expected to receive a 10-year sentence, but all those years will be suspended except the first two.

He must serve at least one year, before he can be released.

"I'm ready to get this behind me," Boosie told the judge Tuesday, after pleading guilty.

He's not set for sentencing on November 9th. However, the judge warned the rapper to stay outta trouble while he's free or the agreed sentence would be much more.

After being released, the rapper will be on probation for two to five years.

Boosie was arrested back in October 2008, when police found a bag of marijuana, a blunt, and a gun in a vehicle he was driving.

He was charged with third-offense possession of marijuana, which is punishable by up to 20 years in prison, and possession of a firearm with a controlled dangerous substance, which carries a mandatory minimum five-year term.

The firearm charge will be dropped after he completes his prison term and probation.

The rapper recently released his second solo album, Superbad: The Return of Boosie Bad Azz, his first new album since 2006.
