Louding's letter to Lil Boosie: "keep your head up"
BATON ROUGE- WBRZ News 2 obtained a letter, written by convicted hitman Michael Louding, to rapper Lil Boosie.
The letter was presented during a hearing this week concerning Louding's sentence for being hired to kill a man in October 2009.
The page and a half, handwritten letter contains numerous expletives and discusses life, God, and running the streets.
"I'm ready, I ain't spook... It's do or die the lord got my back," Louding wrote on April 2nd.
WBRZ News 2 reporter Michael Shingleton, who was in court when the letter was discussed, said parts of it were used to suggest Louding was still interested in killing. Among the issues prosecutor Dana Cummings had was a line where Louding referred to missing his life prior to being arrested.
"I wish I was still in that world tho (sic), 2 (sic) lay law down," he wrote.
Judge Trudy White told Louding she appreciated positive references in the letter, but did not enjoy much else.
Louding ended by writing to Boosie, "keep your head up and put your hands up because you know we got harts (sic)."
He signed it, "One Love, Marlo 'da kid.'"
The letter was mailed to Boosie, who is serving time at Angola. He could not write back because he lost privileges.
