Lil Boosie Opens Up After Prison Release
Lil Boosie, fresh off a five-year prison stint, held a press conference on Monday to discuss his career plans now that he’s back on the outside.
Lil Boosie Talks Career Plans
During his time behind bars, Boosie revealed he penned more than 1,018 songs. Five days after his release, he was in the studio working on tracks.
"I just did one [track] with Young Jeezy last night," Lil Boosie said in his conference, according to The Times-Picayune. "Me and Justin Bieber gonna do something, too. I know it's [going to be] a hit. I'm always excited about music. I'm like a music fiend. I know music from the '50s, '60s, '70s on up. I just want to work with everybody who's doing their thing right now."
While music is Boosie’s main passion and focus, there are other avenues he wishes to pursue – including a line of liquor and clothing.
"I'm trying to get my own liquor, my own clothing line. … My own smell-good cologne. I'm just working, trying to take my success to another level," he said. "Everything has a time. You can have all this stuff, but everything got to be dropped at the right time."
Boosie On Pot Legalization
Boosie, who’d been sent to prison in 2009 on his third marijuana-related offense, also talked about pot legalization. In fact, the Baton Rouge native believes that it would provide his homestate with some much-needed economic growth.
"If Louisiana is in debt, you need to find something to get you out of debt," he said. "I don't see why they wouldn't legalize marijuana, because people don't die off marijuana like they die off alcohol. … You know how many people alcohol kills, but that's legal."
After the five years behind bars, including 20 months in solitary confinement following a first-degree murder indictment, Boosie believes it’s his time. "It's my time," he said. "I feel like it's my time, and I'm gonna make the most of it."
