About Lil Boosie
Torrence Hatch, better known as Lil Boosie, is an American hip-hop artist from Louisiana. He was nicknamed boosie by his own family, years before he started to consider becoming a rapper. Boosie’s career is currently on hold, as the rapper is imprisoned in Louisiana State Penitentiary for the use and position of illicit drugs. He was sentenced for 8 years in jail. Lil Boosie net worth is currently estimated at $4 million.
Torrence was born and raised in one of the poorest districts of Baton Rouge, where deprivation was always present in the air. His father walked on Lil and his mother before he could remember his face and was absent from raising a boy. Lil’s drug problems started when he was still a teenager. He was kicked out from school for drug position and never finished his education, leaving home to pursue the career in music instead. In 2000, Lil started working with another famous recording hip-hop artist C-Loc and soon made a guest appearance on his 5th album.
Although Lil did not get much of the album’s profits and this appearance did not significantly boost Lil Boosie net worth it has brought him attention of Trill Entertainment producers. Following the release of C-Loc’s album It’s a Gamble Boosie signed the contract with this growing recording label and soon released his own debut album entitled For My Thugz. Working with Trill Entertainment Lil met a rapper known by the stage name Webbie. The two realized they share the taste for music and subsequently released two collaboration albums, Gangsta Music and Ghetto Stories.
In 2006 Boosie released his first major label album entitled Bad Azz. Half of the songs in this album were recorded in collaboration with other artists, most notably Webbie and Foxx. It featured songs like “When You Gonna Drop”, “Zoom”, “Smoking on Purple” and “Wipe Me Down”. Bad Azz was a relative commercial success and added a considerable sum to the current Lil Boosie net worth. It hit U.S. Billboard 200 at No. 18 and sold over 40 thousand copies during the week after its release. His second album Superbad: The Return of Boosie Bad Azz was released in 2009.
Its most prominent tracks include “Better Believe It” (recorded in collaboration with Young Jeezy), “Loose a Goose” and “I’m a Dog”. His third and so far the last album Incarcerated was released when Boosie was already serving time in jail. It features guest appearances of Foxx and Webbie and includes hits like “Devils”, “Betrayed”, “Showin up” and “We Gon’ Miss You”. Its first week sales were somewhat lower than expected, reaching 30 thousand copies at best. However, eventually the album sold over 150 thousand copies and boosted Lil Boosie net worth to $4 million.
