Lil Boosie says he's written nearly 500 songs in jail and is planning to pen a memoir.
Even though he was found not guilty of first-degree murder in May 2012, Lil Boosie is still serving out a sentence for drug possession while behind bars. Now, in an exclusive interview with Spin, Boosie speaks on his time in jail and his plans after his release from prison.
Boosie discussed the trials of jail, saying that the love of his family and fans has helped him cope with his sentence. He also added that he feels his mission in life has yet to be completed, and that his time in jail has driven him to reinvent himself as both an artist and a person.
"I've coped by knowing in my heart that I'm someone special who many people love. If you lose hope in yourself, you'll make your time hard," he said. "I always felt that my mission wasn't
Boosie also spoke on his post-prison plans, saying that he's written close to 500 songs that he believes to be some of the best of his career. He also discussed his plans to pen a memoir, titled The Truth, No Lies.
"I have about 500 songs at the moment," he said. "I feel that I'm making the best music I've ever made. The more I go through in life the better my music gets and it's been crazy the last three years. I keep my music heartfelt and stick to making real music. I wouldn't even say it's Hip Hop music. My music is 'reality rap.' Hip Hop music can make you dance and bob your head, but it can't make you cry or touch your heart like reality rap."
Of his memoir, he added, "I just felt the world needed to hear my life story so those who don't understand certain things that I rap about, like the struggle, will understand that it's the struggle that made me who I am today. I want people to know that it's bigger than rap with me. I have a good heart. I want people who never took the time out to listen to me, to give me a chance."
As previously mentioned, Boosie is currently serving an eight-year sentence for attempting to smuggle codeine, Ecstasy and marijuana into jail. It is unknown when the Baton Rouge rapper will be released, although his attorneys estimate he could be released this summer.
Frank Ocean is allegedly going to make matters legal with Chris Brown after they engaged in a scuffle.
Last night, tensions between Frank Ocean and Chris Brown mounted after the two engaged in a skirmish at a studio in Los Angeles, California.
According to NY Post, the Odd Future crooner is looking to press charges against Brown for "punching him and starting an all-out brawl" outside of Westlake Studios.
Police claim that Ocean is "desirous of prosecution" and that they're looking to question Brown, who is on probation stemming from his beating Rihanna in 2009 until August 2014.
The alteraction last night stemmed from an argument over a parking spot. Following the skirmish, Ocean took to Twitter to confirm the incident and state that he wished that Everest, his dog, were there to back him up. The singers have been at odds for a while, with the two firing shots at one another by making comparisons to other singers.

It’s hard to believe that 20 years have passed since Jermaine Dupri first established So So Def Recordings. Through a joint venture with Sony Music and Columbia Records, the hip hop mogul’s vision first began with female R&B group Xscape. Dupri’s label would later become responsible for classic material from top artists including Da Brat, Jagged Edge, Anthony Hamilton, Dem Franchise Boyz, Dondria, 3LW, Bone Crusher, Bow Wow’s triple platinum debut LP and many more.
To say the least, Dupri’s contributions to the music industry via his unique production skills, songwriting, and ability to hone artists has in turn birthed some of the best records within hip hop and R&B.
To commemorate two decades in the industry, JD recently released a song aptly titled, “Celebration,” which boasts features from current So So Def artists as well as notable alums. The song was recorded over Game’s latest single, “Jesus Piece.”
More importantly though, the famed music producer has announced that he will be hosting a So So Def anniversary concert at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre on February 23rd. Dupri recently posted the official flyer for the upcoming concert event as well as photo of him discussing plans for the show alongside the twins from Jagged Edge, Brandon and Brian Casey. Tickets will be available on Saturday.
