NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Rapper Lil Boosie says serving prison time in a Louisiana prison was life changing and it's made him a better person and ultimately, he hopes, a better artist.

Lil Boosie, whose real name is Torence Hatch, was released last week from the state's maximum security prison at Angola.

On Monday, he held a news conference at a New Orleans hotel to talk about his future.

After reacquainting himself with his 7 children, Lil Boosie says he wants to get back into the studio.

While imprisoned following a 2009 drug conviction, he says he wrote more than 1,000 songs.
