BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Rapper Lil Boosie will speak at an event in New Orleans on March 10, according to an invitation that was sent to the media Wednesday.

The invite reads "Trill Entertainment and Atlantic Records invites you to hear #BoosieSpeak." The event will be held at the W Hotel at 1 p.m.

Boosie has been serving prison time on drug charges in 2009. The Louisiana Department of Corrections Wednesday afternoon had the rapper's official release date listed as May 20, 2014.

In 2012, the rapper went on trial for murder but was found not guilty. Prosecutors called more than two dozen witnesses in the trial but a jury rendered a verdict after just one hour of deliberating. He was accused of hiring a man to kill a local rap artist.
