Lil Boosie is no longer a jail bird.

The Baton Rouge rapper was released from the Louisiana State Penitentiary at 7:10 p.m. Wednesday night. Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, was taken to a sheriff’s department facility where family members were waiting for him, Baton Rouge’s WAFB reports

Boosie, whose official release date was May 20, had been serving prison time for a drug conviction in 2009. While in prison, he plead guilty to attempting to smuggle drugs, adding eight years to his sentence.

In 2012, Boosie went on trial for first-degree murder. He was accused of hiring a man to kill local rapper Terry Boyd, but was found not guilty. He will remain on parole until 2018.

After his release, Boosie posted a video of his daughter celebrating his release. On March 10, Boosie is scheduled to speak at an event organized by Trill Entertainment and Atlantic Records in New Orleans.
