Man Says Lil Boosie Paid Him $15G’s To Kill Rapper Nussie

90wqwl585x320

Prosecutors have accused rapper Lil Boosie of paying $15,000 to have rival rapper Christopher “Nussie” Jackson murdered.

Prosecutors played a videotaped statement from Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding in court this week.

Louding confessed to detectives that Lil Boosie wanted Nussie killed, after the rapper was allegedly disrespectful to one of Lil Boosie’s associates during an altercation.

According to The Advocate, Lil Boosie hired Louding and another associated named Michael “Ghost” Judson to murder Nussie, as well as another man named Terry Boyd.

Only Michael Louding is on trial for the murder of Christopher “Nussie” Jackson, because Judson is dead.

Louding’s trial for murdering Nussie is just the start, as he has been charged with five other murders between 2009 and 2010.

Rapper Lil Boosie, born Torrence Hatch, is also charged with first-degree murder in one of the killings.

Prosecutors claim to have evidence that Lil Boosie hired Louding to shoot a man named Terry Boyd in October of 2009.

Lil Boosie, 28, was not charged in the death of Christopher “Nussie” Jackson, because he did not have direct contact with Michael Louding prior to Nussie’s murder.

Earlier this week, Lil Boosie was accused of attempting to smuggle drugs into a second state prison in Louisiana.

The rapper was indicted for trying to smuggle codeine into Angola State Prison, as well as the Dixon Correctional Institute at Jackson, where he was previously incarcerated, while serving a 10-year sentence for possession of marijuana.

Prosecutors are still debating if they are going to seek the death penalty against Lil Boosie.

Lil Boosie Charged With Smuggling Drugs Into Prison

Maybe you’ve only heard of Lil Boosie in passing, or perhaps you’ve never heard of him at all. His songs have never earned regular local radio play, and his influence west of the Rockies is usually relegated to street rap diehards and those who read their RSS feed intravenously.

But in the South, his influence is omnipresent, crossing racial and class divides. He’s a cult figure with a mass following, a high-top faded and ferocious performer perennially enduring some sort of struggle (whether it’s women, diabetes or triumphing over illegal downloading to buy a candy-painted car).

From his first days as a member of C-Loc’s Concentration Camp clique to being promoted as the next Trill star by Pimp C, to his classic mixtapes, to a trio of solo albums released on Asylum Records, Boosie has earned a reputation as one of the rawest rappers in the South, a region known for unfiltered flamboyant personas.

Alas, it’s also a region known for the frequency with which its most popular artists are incarcerated. Over the last few years, T.I., Gucci Mane, Lil Wayne, Mystikal and Lil Boosie have been incarcerated for various indiscretions. Yet Boosie’s charges trump them all.

While it’s dificult to parse his current legal woes, at the moment he is facing charges ranging from ordering the murder of rivals (a charge that could get him the death penalty) to various conspiracy charges to distribute and smuggle narcotics into a federal penitiary. And on Monday, he was indicted on charges of trying to smuggle codeine into a second state prison. The indictment comes from a May 25 charge that Boosie and two local men had been attempting to smuggle in the banned substance. If convicted, it could lead to two to four years being tacked onto Boosie’s prison time.

Ignoring speculation about his guilt or innocence, it’s sad to watch one of the most singular voices of his generation get shut down. With his sinister amphibian croak, Boosie rapped about many of the same tropes as his peers, but he always conveyed greater anguish, sincerity and unfiltered passion. He created music to triumph over adversity, which resonated with anyone going through any sort of woe. He also stole the show on “Wipe Me Down,” which remains one of the funnest songs of all time.

Recently, a bootleg mixtape compilation of his most recent work has cropped up. Downloading it is recommended. Of local interest is “California,” a paean to the streets of L.A. and its most famous cash crop.

An 18-year-old associate of rapper Lil Boosie that is charged with six murders, will first stand trial for the killing of Chris “Nussie” Jackson.

Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding is charged with killing Baton Rouge rapper Chris “Nussie” Jackson in 2009.

According to prosecutors, Nussie was one of six men murdered by Louding during a violent streak in 2009.

He was who just 16-years-old when the string of murders took place.

Lil Boosie and Nussie were engaged in a violent war of words, when Nussie was gunned down inside of a house on American Street, in February of 2009.

Louding is also accused of killing a 35-year-old named Terry Boyd, in a murder for hire plot that prosecutors claim involves Lil Boosie.

Although Lil Boosie is not charged in the Nussie case, prosecutors originally claimed he may have ordered that hit as well, because the two rappers were feuding at the time of the homicide.


As a rapper, Nussie was the founder of Dope Celebrity Records, which released three of his albums.

Lil Boosie, born Torrence Hatch, is not charged in Nussie’s death, but he faces a first-degree murder charge for his alleged role in Boyd’s murder.

Including Lil Boosie, a total of seven men from Baton Rouge have been charged in a total of six murders.

Also charged are Ryan “Sneaks” Carroll, 16, Johnathan Rogers, 17, Kendrick Johnson, 19 Jared Williams, 20, Reginald Youngblood, 32 and Adrian Pittman, 36.

According to reports, the first hearing for Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding will take place on July 20th.

As for Lil Boosie, the rapper has pleaded not guilty to a first-degree murder charge.

Rapper Lil Boosie is in more trouble as he serves a prison sentence for possession of marijuana and fights a first degree murder charge.

Lil Boosie, born Torrance Hatch, is being investigated for threatening East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore III.

While Boosie has lyrically attacked Moore on songs in the past, police believed there was a credible threat against the District Attorney, who is leading the investigation into the rapper’s possible involvement in as many as five murders

“I can confirm that we received information relative to a credible threat against District Attorney Hillar Moore and the District Attorney’s Office,” State Police spokesman Lt. Doug Cain told The Advocate.

As a result of the investigation into the threat against Moore, Lil Boosie ended up getting caught attempting to smuggle codeine into the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola.

According to Louisiana State Penitentiary Warden Burl Cain, Lil Boosie has not been involved in any violent altercations while he has been incarcerated, although he continuously gets into trouble.

“He has a hard time following basic rules,” Warden Burl Cain said. “He’s getting better though.”

Just three weeks ago, two officers resigned after they were caught letting Lil Boosie make more phone calls that he was allowed to make.

Lil Boosie is due in court on June 22nd, in relation to the indictment for his alleged role in the murder of 35-year-old Terry Boyd, who was killed in October of 2010 in Baton Rogue.

Lil Boosie Speaks Out Before Going To Jail

Posted: Monday – November 20, 2009

During his last few hours before heading off to prison on drug charges, a Baton Rouge rap artist sat down and talked about the decisions he has made and what is ahead for him.

Torrence “Lil Boosie” Hatch was sentenced to a 10-year prison sentence. Hatch pleaded guilty to a third-offence marijuana possession charge and later violated his probation. He wants people to know there’s a difference between the music he makes and the life he lives.

“They’re treating me on who they think I am,” Hatch said. “They judging me on Boosie Bad Azz, not Torrence Hatch.”

For Hatch, the music has not stopped, it’s simply been faded, for now. The rappers jail sentence was doubled after he failed to follow a judges orders. Hatch was on house arrest, but chose to leave his home more than once. He says he was sued by promoters for missing his concert dates and feared that missing more shows would send him into bankruptcy.

“I had to go do these two shows these last two days to feed my family,” said Hatch.

The 26-year-old rap artist and father of seven, with one on the way, admits he’s no angel. Hatch tends to do things his way. Sometimes putting himself in sticky situations. His wrap sheet includes marijuana possession, weapons charges, resisting an officer and aggravated battery.

“I blame it on myself,” said Hatch. “Because things I did I wanted to do. Trouble is easy to get into, but it’s hard to get out.”

The night before he went in to prison. Hatch revealed his fears and concerns about being behind bars, and away from his children. “I won’t be able to see my child born, yea that hurts,” said Hatch.

Dripping in diamonds, shinning on the outside, for Hatch, deep down things are dim. Raised in what some might call a dark place in South Baton Rouge, Hatch warns others about the dangers of the streets.

“School is the first thing,” said Hatch. “Once you stay in school and make up your mind you want to be somebody, the negatives will go away. And stay away from negative people.”

Walking through his home, you could feel the adulation. Hatch surrounds himself with family and friends. He says with good people around him he feels protected. But without his loved one nearby in prison, Hatch says it will be extremely difficult.

“If I made a mistake with marijuana, why am I not eligible for rehab? I’ve been on marijuana since a teenager. I need some rehab. Jail is not rehab.”

Radio personality LaTangela Sherman with Max 94.1, works closely with artists. She says to some people marijuana is not considered a drug. Sherman agrees that Hatch does need rehabilitation. And hopes the time he spends in jail will serve as a wake up call. So that he is able to come out a stronger man, stable father and a role model to his many fans.

Hatch agreed to be interviewed because he wanted to let his fans know that he’s staying strong and they should too.

He is expected to serve about two years behind bars, with five years of probation once he gets out. Hatch is currently serving his time in the Winn Correctional Center in Winnfield, LA.
