Lil Boosie concert scheduled for July 3 in Baton Rouge

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Rapper Lil Boosie will be coming home to Baton Rouge to perform in concert.

Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, is scheduled to perform on July 3 at the F.G. Clark Activity Center on Southern University's campus.

Southern officials confirmed the performance.

"As of right now,  the university is tentatively planning for that particular event," said LaTonya Green Jones, Southern's director of auxiliary services.  "It's been approved, but the contract has not been finalized yet. We do have a meeting set for Friday morning."

She adds the university is already getting lots of calls.

Hatch was released from prison March 5 after serving four years in the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola on a drug conviction. During his time in prison, he completed his GED.

Just days after his release, he spoke to the media regarding his future in the music industry. The rapper signed a deal with Atlantic Records. He revealed his plans to leave his hometown of Baton Rouge and take up residence in New Orleans.

Lil Boosie has fans worldwide. Many of them commonly used the term "Free Boosie" during his incarceration.
