Back in May Louisiana rapper Lil Boosie was busted trying to set up a drug smuggling ring in Angola prison [click here if you missed that].
Mind you, Boosie was already in jail doing four years for probation violations when he got indicted on murder charges, for which he's currently facing the death penalty [click here if you missed that].
So this little drug smuggling thing is nothing...
Rapper Lil Boosie was sentenced to 8 years of hard time for conspiring to smuggle drugs into prison ... THREE TIMES.
Boosie -- who was featured on the 2007 hit "Wipe Me Down" -- was in court in Louisiana Tuesday morning, where he plead guilty to three counts conspiring to bring drugs into a penal institution.
The judge sentenced Boosie to 8 years in prison.
But Boosie has bigger problems -- he's also been accused of 1st degree murder in the death of a 35-year-old man ... and could possibly face the death penalty if convicted.
Boosie's murder trial is set to begin in April.
