Incarcerated rapper Lil Boosie has been hit with a drug charge over allegations he conspired to smuggle codeine syrup into prison.
The hip-hop star, real name Torrence Hatch, is currently behind bars serving a four-year sentence for drug and gun possession and violating parole from a previous conviction. He is also due to stand trial this summer (11) after pleading not guilty to a first-degree murder charge relating to a 2009 shooting in Louisiana.
The 28 year old is now facing a count of conspiracy to introduce contraband into a penal institution and inciting a felony after he was accused of working with two men in an attempt to sneak drugs into the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola.
He was charged with the alleged offences on Wednesday (25May11).
