The moment everyone has been waiting for has finally begun. In 2009, Lil’ Boosie was rumored to be involved in the murder of Terry Boyd. Boyd had just been released from prison, when he was shot and killed, while sitting on a couch in his family’s home by Michael Louding, according to the prosecution. Lil’ Boosie was working on new music, at the time, but was arrested and sent to prison in 2010, where he has remained for two years.
Throughout his ordeal, Lil’ Boosie has remained hopeful and has professed his innocence to anyone who will listen. Said to be the hitman, Michael Louding has confessed to killing at least six people on tape, which lessened his sentence from life. Among the murders Louding admitted to committing was one under orders from Lil’ Boosie. For the murder, Louding claimed he was paid $2,800. Lil’ Boosie’s prosecution said if he is lying about this, it makes it much easier for them.
Other evidence includes songs recorded by Lil’ Boosie right before the murder was committed, including the song, “187.” On the song, Lil’ Boosie raps “I want that bitch dead today.” Lil’ Boosie has recorded more songs during this period, which also reference taking a life. While the music is being used as evidence, Lil’ Boosie was a “gangsta rapper,” known for making music in this vein, but does not make him a killer for sure. Louding also revealed a tattoo on his stomach of an AK-47, which has words under it, which read “Yo Boosie Who’s Next.”
Lil’ Boosie’s defense said he held no ill will toward Terry Boyd, as one of his children’s mother is Boyd’s sister. Following the death of Boyd, it has been said Boosie began acting out and questioning what Michael Louding told police. Lil’ Boosie’s attorney, Jason Williams, said that reaction is normal if someone has been speaking with law enforcement, but said they were all grieving over the loss of a friend. Another man involved was named Mike Judson. It has been said that Judson’s involvement led to Terry Boyd’s death, as Boyd, who was recently released from prison, had stolen guns and drugs for him.
Discrediting Michael Louding, Jason Williams spoke of how Louding revealed he had voices in his head, which told him to hurt people. As more information on Lil’ Boosie’s trial is released, Hip Hop Vibe will continue to provide updates.
