Lil Boosie shared a bit of street wisdom with Colby Colb of Z107.9 Cleveland in a post-prison interview.
The embattled MC issued a message to youths, explaining the dangers of the streets.
“Try to stay in school cause these streets…you going to prison,” the “Show The World” rapper said. “That’s just a fact. I don’t care how good you get at what you doing, if it’s part of the streets you’re going to prison.”
Boosie, born Torrence Hatch, encouraged younger fans to stay “positive” and “chase their dreams.
“I want em to chase their dreams also. I just want them to try to stay positive…stay around positive people,” he continued. “That’s to say coming up in the situations we came up in. Some are going to fall. I just tell them to learn from their mistakes. When you do that, it make you a better person.”
Boosie was sentenced to serve four years in prison after violating the terms of his parole in 2009, according to WAFB.
Boosie’s violation stemmed from pleading guilty to a third-offense marijuana possession charge.
Boosie’s legal woes didn’t end there. Boosie had eight additional years tacked onto his prison bid after he was caught smuggling codeine into the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola, according to the Times-Picayune.
Codeine is the primary ingredient used in “Lean,” a drink that provides its user a sedated effect.
Boosie dodged a bullet after he was acquitted of murder in the 2009 murder of Terry Boyd. Boyd’s sister is the mother of Boosie’s child.
The “Independent” rapper was accused of hiring hitman Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding in the slaying. Louding took his street moniker from the menacing character on “The Wire” crime series. Louding, who was 17 at the time, was sentenced to life in prison without parole.
Boosie was released from the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola March 5 after serving four years of an eight-year prison sentence for a drug conviction and probation violation.
The embattled rap MC will remain under parole and probation until 2018, Louisiana Department of Corrections spokesperson Pam LaBorde told The Times-Picayune.
Lil Boosie is set to release his music video for single “Show The World” featuring Webbie. The visual is set to drop soon.
