Those of you that have been hangin’ with me since the beginning will remember the post where I gave you all a little background on the letter that Lil’ Boosie wrote from prison encouraging anyone who looks up to him to challenge themself to not fall into the same patterns and traps that he’s fallen into. I have no idea now, and I have no way of knowing in the future if Boosie was involved in the murder he is about to stand trial for, but I do know for certain that I love his music, and that I don’t believe any crime deserves being executed over.
Today, we got news that the more important half of those feelings that I have has been set at ease: Boosie will not face the death penalty, no matter what happens in his upcoming trial. I would of course love to also have news that he was going to put together some new music at some point, somehow, but I’m infinitely glad that they won’t be putting this man to death for the crimes he’s on trial for. I consider anybody not getting put to death to be good news. Maybe he can still make it to the top, all the way from the bottom.
