Lil Boosie has been behind bars since June 2010 on a first-degree murder charge, but on Tuesday (November 29), the Baton Rouge, Louisiana, rapper (real name, Torrence Hatch) landed an eight-year prison sentence for drug charges. He pleaded guilty to three counts of conspiring to smuggle drugs into disciplinary facilities and still remains incarcerated. This week Boosie penned a long letter to fans from prison, giving thanks for all the support he's received and saying a few words on upcoming projects.
