Rapper Lil Boosie celebrated his release from prison on Wednesday night (05Mar14) by sharing a new song with his fans.

The hip-hop star was freed after five years behind bars at the Louisiana State Penitentiary, and Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch, was so eager to get back to his rap game that he recorded a new track - during the car ride home from jail.

Boosie posted a video on YouTube.com, titled The Ride Home, which featured him sitting in the backseat of a car, while freestyling about his new-found freedom.

In the 54 second clip, he raps, "Labelled me Scarface, Al Capone and Larry Hoover/You and I know it was damn wrong how they judged Boosie.

"Man just trying to take off these jail clothes... Shackled down from my feet to my hands/ Missing my kids, man, a feeling only I can explain... Get back to doing what I was doing with my money machine. Ching, ching."

Representatives at his label Atlantic Records have confirmed Boosie will be making his first official public statement on Monday (10Mar13), during an event in New Orleans, Louisiana.
