Nola reports:

Torrence Hatch, aka rapper Lil Boosie, was released from prison Wednesday night, according to a representative from the Louisiana Department of Corrections. His release comes on the heels of an Atlantic Records spokesperson verifying Hatch would appear at a press conference March 10.

DOC spokesperson Pam LaBorde confirmed Hatch left the prison, commonly known as Angola, just after 7 p.m. on March 5.

Hatch was sent to a West Feliciana Sheriff’s Department facility to meet his lawyer and at least one other person, LaBorde said.

Hatch will remain under parole and probation for some time, LaBorde said, although she did not have the dates available. Terms of that supervision will be verified during a parole intake within 48 hours and at a probationary hearing in front of a judge, she continued.

Hatch’s parole and probation restrictions could include a stipulation that he be required to ask permission to leave the state, or that he not be allowed to leave Louisiana at all, but LaBorde said it was simply too early to tell the specifics of those restrictions.

Media entities were sent invitations this week to a press conference offering interviews with the Baton Rouge rapper. The conference invitation had logos for both Atlantic Records and Trill Entertainment.

“He will absolutely be there,” said a representative with Atlantic Records. “He’ll be speaking to the press for the first time … after his release.”

Rumors surrounding Hatch and his release date have circulated since he entered Angola, so his actual exit from the prison should put to rest some of the massive speculation that has occurred on rap and hip hop blogs, websites, magazines and other news sources.

While incarcerated Hatch was brought up on first-degree murder charges related to the 2009 fatal shooting of Terry Boyd, also a rapper.

“Boosie was accused of paying then 19-year old Michael ‘Marlo Mike’ Louding to kill the 35-year old man, but was found not guilty in May of 2011 after a week of testimony and jury deliberation. In November of 2011, months after being found not guilty in the murder trial, Boosie pleaded guilty to three counts of conspiring to smuggle drugs, which resulted in his eight-year sentence,” MTV News reports.
