Rapper Lil Boosie is coming home sooner than expected. Originally set for release from prison in August, the New Orleans native will now be freed next month.

According to, Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch, will return home by Feb. 16 thanks in part to him participating in various programs while he was locked up.

Boosie was incarcerated for violating his probation after being arrested on marijuana possession charges in 2009. He then had his sentence extended after he pleaded guilty for smuggling contraband into the prison.

Once Boosie is released from prison, he will be on supervised probation until June 17, 2018. The 31-year-old rapper will have plenty of things to keep him busy once he’s out. “He has plans to go straight to the studio to begin working on an album as well as his tour in late spring, early summer,” said his brother, Taquari Hatch, to

Hatch wouldn’t address the rumor that Boosie will sign with Rick Ross’ label, Maybach Music Group, when he’s released. But he did confirm that the rapper will create a foundation to help children of victims of homicides.

Let the countdown begin.
