Rap Daily: Rapper Lil Boosie was hit with drug charges today, for attempting to smuggle codeine into Angola prison.
According to Louisiana State Police Lieut. Doug Cain, Lil Boosie was working with two men to get the drug into Angola prison.
Police began an investigation and had an undercover officer work with two local men, Titus Franklin 27, and Arthur Stewart, also 27.
Both men were arrested last week and hit with drug charges, according to Lieut. Cain.
Lil Boosie, born Torrence Hatch, was booked into Parish Prison and charged on one count of conspiracy to introduce contraband into a penal institution and inciting a felony.
Lil Boosie is currently serving 10 years prison for possession of marijuana, although he was only expected to serve two years of the sentence.
While he was in prison for his third marijuana possession charge, the rapper was indicted for first degree murder.
In that case Boosie is charged with paying a hit man to kill 35-year-old Terry Boyd in October of 2009.
Boosie is also being investigated into at least five other murders in Baton Rouge, along with five other men.
