Judge Rules Lyrics Can Be Used In Lil Boosie Murder Trial

A judge has ruled that lyrics from one of Lil Boosie's songs can be used as evidence against him in his murder trial.

It looks like Lil Boosie's ongoing trial for first-degree murder trial is going to get worse before it gets any better. A judge has ruled that specific lyrics from one of the Baton Rouge rapper's songs are admissible as evidence in his trial.

According to a recent report from NBC 33 TV, Judge Mike Erwin ruled during a pre-trial hearing this past Tuesday that three specific lyrics from one of Boosie's songs can be used by the prosecution to show personal intent in the murder case. Interrogating officer of the Baton Rouge police Alvin Howard says that the specific lines “187,” “murk,” and “cake” are references to Boosie allegedly hiring a hitman to murder Terry Boyd in 2009. 

The ruling has not come without some resistance from the defense. Boosie's lawyers argue that not only is Officer Howard not an expert witness in rap slang, but that the prosecution may have altered the lyrics of the track in question and thus should not play the song in court. Judge Erwin sustained both of the defense's objections, but allowed the specific lyrics in question to be entered into evidence.

The name of the song in question has yet to be revealed to the general public. If found guilty, Lil Boosie faces a life sentence in prison.

    Lil Boosie went To Jail September 23, 2009 at 05:29 pm Terry Boyd was murdered Oct. 21, 2009 BOOSIE WAS IN JAIL WHEN TERRY BOYD WAS SHOT! There were no witnesses, murder weapon or evidence. Prosecutors have the word of a cooperating witness who says Boosie paid him. With no other evidence!!! Boosie is on trial for murder off of one man's word. The same man who shot his cousin Darrl "Bleek" Milton & Charles Matthews on April 1, 2010.... LOOK UP THE FACTS FOR YOURSELF. BOOSIE WAS IN JAIL WHEN THAT MURDER TOOK PLACE.

    The last 2 guys that were killed were Boosie's cousin Bleek and his friend. Micheal Louding said Boosie's name about 1 killing

    get dis fool in jail. only a chump hires hitman and only a pussy kills.

  • BoosieFergYoAss

    Man who gives a cruc bout his lyrics. The dude hired a hitman to kill 6 people whatta bitch. We dont need people like him in this world. His lyrics aren't even deep or meaningful, he got expelled from high school, and hired people to kill. Just kill this fucker becuz he is a fail at life. Just cuz u from da hood dont mean you have chances to get out. I done it, hard work and all, but anyone can do it. Theres always a chance. Boosie get the fuck to prison fo life scum bag ass mofo.

    "so if Boosie's lyrics" Remember how C-Bo kept getting jammed up because he'd talk about killing cops. I think these days lyrics are almost like confessionals. Rappers are basically telling you what they do, and while of course you still need proof, in the case of Boosie, it's not like his credibility is rock solid. I think more rappers need to watch what they say in song, cause they'll be surprised whose listening.

    Look what you made me do, brains blew. My team in the marine-blue, six Coupe Skied it out, weeded out, cleanin out -- the block. For distances, givin long kissies bitch" - Long Kiss Goodnight with Puffy yelling in the background now all we can do is pray etc. so if Boosie's lyrics are allowed then those lyrics from Biggie's track can be used as evidence that Crips killed Pac or 50 Cent saying the guy who shot him died 3 weeks later (even though the guy who shot him got shot over a drug deal and not 50) Get my point?

    "Name 5 rappers since NWA who don't have 187, murk, and cake in their rhymes!!!!" But we know that 99% of these rappers are fake. Boosie is real, and even if he gets off, I bet he'll find a way to land right back in the same situation. I think a part of him loves being a thug. It's the accountability part that is the problem.

      Name the 5 rappers then bitch or shut the fuck up!!!!

      A lot of concious rappers dont have bullshit murk and shit in there lyrics. because they only spit the truth. They neva killed nobody, they rap bout things ppl can relat to.

    Name 5 rappers since NWA who don't have 187, murk, and cake in their rhymes!!!! Are you kidding me?? Just like The First 48 they need a confession because they don't have any evidence other than hearsay from a man who confessed to 6 murders including Boosie's cousin and right hand man Bleek!!!! The Judge has "literally" allowed every motion the DA asked and denied everything the defense asked.

    "It's a dirty dirty world and it keep on turning!" -Boosie Really this whole case was never fair from the get go. They been wanting to lock Boosie up ever since he made it. The Judge and Hilar Moore are both racist. I really hope the jury give Boosie a fair trial and don't convict him just for some lyrics. I hear these types of lyrics every day in different genes of music. They never had any evidence from the get go which is why it took so long for them to even bring this case to trial.

      Get a brain LOL. Fool i'm a student athlete at the College Division 1 level. Name one song where he actually told Marlo Mike to go kill a certain person. I'll be waiting on you to tell me that song. And like I said there is no evidence. Until you can show me legit evidence(exchange of money, a witness, or any other real LEGIT) evidence then i'll agree with you but until then it's #FreeBoosie! Get a life. If you don't like the guy then why comment on an article or even speak your opinion about him. Hater.

    • UDUMBHOMIE4REAL

      Man getta brain. The dude basically admitted he killed (Hired a hitman) to kill 6 man. The dude should be locked up or killed. The justice systeam is a joke if they dont locked this fool up.

    The people who are making this a race issue are dumb as fuck. I think Eminem when he was getting sued they used his lyrics. While it is sad that he's going to jail, Boosie does deserve to be there. He fucked up. Part of being a man is accepting responsibility. Maybe Boosie will learn from his mistakes.

    So every rapper must be a murder according to the prosecution because they all use that language in their music. Hillar Moore is racist and I think they're whole case is bogus. Karma is a b187h so these so called jokes of prosecutors will get whats coming to them. Free Boosie

    I'm surprised they're only using 3 words... Anyone remember the song "Somebody in Trouble?" I used to like it because of the instrumental in the middle. "I got some killas on my payroll/ And they know/ When it's time to handle business, nigga lay low/" I could go on, the whole song is about murder...

    • AnomynousNOT

      Boosie is connected with 6 murders n its a fact. Tupac wasnt connected to any even tho he rapped bout it. Most rappers back in tha day as posing anyway with dey lyrics. Boosie never said anything abot murdring but he is connected with the murders. i dont why the fuck they even brough lyrics in to dis shiit.

    • Nah

      I think you're talking about Loyal To the Game by Tupac. thats his line homie. "I got some killers on my payroll and they know When it's time to handle business nigga lay low Although I'm young I'm still coming up I'm gettin paid pulling razors on niggas when they running up"

      Those lyric the courts is trying to use is TUPAC lyrics lOYAL TO THE GAME BY PAC, so boosie is stealin a line from pac and they goin to use that against him f up people. mThats why the justice system is fuck up those white folks do not know nutting about black music. Once again TUPAC said " Igot some killas on my paroll and they know when it time to handle business lay low although im young im still coming up im getting paid pullin razors on niggas when they runnin up, boosie only spittin what he heard from TUPAC....

    I'm frm baton rouge u can go look on wafb for the whole story...the song they using is 187 ft. BG it's a remix to one of BG's old song. The judge said they can't use the whole song & the also can't play the song in court or read the lyrics word for word.... The prosecutors are using three words frm the song which are Murk, 187, and I Cnt remember the word but it was a slang that meant money. Those are the only things they can use frm the song. They only other thing they talked about in court was Boosie attorney wanted him moved frm Angola state Prison to the parish prison. So real it was a good day in court for Boosie FreeBoosie

    The weight of the lyrics could tip the scales of justice in favor of the prosecution. Game on! The defense needs to provide a solid reason to doubt that he did do it. Saying that they are just lyrics in a rap song probably won't make jurors doubt he did it. It's not what you know but it's what you can prove

    I personally don't know any of Boosie's lyrics. But if he's on wax bragging about an actual murder, it wouldn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that it can be used against him. I wonder what other evidence do they have against him. I'm sure the lyrics alone won't be enough to convict him. However, this still should be a lesson to all to watch what you say on wax.

    • Anonymous

      you obviously have never created anything in your life, otherwise you would understand the importance of artistic freedom, no matter what your subject matter. you are in know position to say he bragged about it on wax! thousands of artists talking about murder and violence in their music, that doesnt mean it reflects reality. that's the same reason they couldnt do shit to 2pac when that guy who killed a cop claimed he did so after listeneing to 2pac. or marlyn manson with that school shooting. or movies for the countless death they allegedly contribute to. you sit there behind your computer calling me a "hoodlum" like some white washed coon. looking down your nose at me based off preconcieved westernized ignorance, not even realize im neither hoodlum nor black. even you're an ignorant white man or an even more ignorant uncle tom.

      No, fuck you! You ass backwards brain dead hoodlum. Artist should have to watch what they say on wax!

By that logic, why don't we release Charles Manson and every other cold blooded murderer and rapist because it "can't be taken back?"

      Agreed and the lyrics themselves don't even provide any non circumstantial evidence. All the lyrics do is provide a motive if even that. Even if it provides motive, thoughts don't make someone guilty someone could think or say they want someone dead doesn't mean they will act out on it. The lyrics are way to circumstantial and insignificant towards establishing anything credible imo.
