Lil Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch, appeared in his first press conference on Monday since being released from prison. Press conference moderator, Angela Yee of the syndicated Breakfast Club morning show, briefly interviewed the rapper before opening the floor for questions from various media outlets in attendance.
Boosie says that the first thing he did when he got out was to spend time with his seven children.
“I’m still enjoying the moment, enjoying my family you know? I’m just soaking in time with the kids and the studio,” he said.
The Louisiana native, who served a five-year prison sentence on drug charges, has a warning for his youngest fans.
“All the people who looked up to me and think me going to jail gave me a badge of honor, it really gave me a badge of pain, and a lot of making up to do with my kids and with life period.”
Lil Boosie later posed for pictures with record label executives along with his mom Connie Hatch and daughter Toriana. The press conference was streamed live on BOOSIESPEAKS.com.
