Incarcerated rapper Lil Boosie has written an open letter to fans revealing his murder trial is set to begin in April (12).
The hip-hop star is currently behind bars serving an eight-year sentence after he confessed to attempting to sneak drugs into jail while serving time for a previous drug and gun possession charge.
Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch, is also accused of first-degree murder for the death of Terry Boyd in October, 2009. The rapper is accused of hiring hitmen to kill the 35 year old and faces the death penalty if found guilty.
Now he has revealed the trial will begin in April - and he's asking fans to pray for him as the hearing date nears.
He writes, "I go to trial for this murder charge in April so please keep me in your prayers. To all my fans who write me (sic) through J-Pay make sure you put your address so I can respond. Its (sic) hard to write every body back but I will try my best to do so.
"I want to thank God for everything and now I know the real from the fake and I can say that not too many are not real. I also want to send love to the realest woman in the world my Mama Mrs. Connie who's my best friend, mama, spiritual adviser and #1 Fan."
