On June 17, 2010 Lil Boosie was indicted on federal charges for first-degree murder. Boosie also faces charges for three counts of possession with intent to distribute narcotics, three counts of “conspiracy to commit possession with intent to distribute narcotics” and two counts of “conspiracy to introduce contraband into a penal institution.”

It is reported that if Boosie is convicted of all these charges he could face the death penalty. XXLMag.com interviewed the locked down rapper through the walls of Louisiana State Penitentiary.

“Some days I’m maintaining, but I’m missing my family and the life I had out there,” Boosie told XXL. “My first seven months I was in population, but since June I’ve been on 23-hour lockdown.”

“They said they’re trying to protect me because of who I am,” he continued. “They got people get stabbed here, killed here. Pretty rough people here. A lot of rats here, snitches.”

“[I’m here] ’cause of the songs I made, before I was indicted, about the police in Baton Rouge and what’s going on here,” he said. “There’s a lot with our record label, that the system don’t like… They took my hard drive out of my house after I got arrested. I have albums for days in there. They still haven’t returned it. They’ve had it for damn near a year now. I need that music. I’m leaving Louisiana the first day I get out of prison. I’m a major target down here. I’ll thank God for everything and get back to the money.”
