Lil Boosie Kids - This Badass Rapper’s A Father Of Eight
Care to know something about Lil Boosie kids? Then start reading about the man himself. Famous for his raw, life-is-a-struggle lyrics and infamous for his involvement in drug-related incidents, this rapper is a father to eight children - from six different mothers. Plus, two adoptive kids. Despite his errant ways, he’s got a soft spot, doesn’t he?
Back in the ‘80s, the city of Baton Rouge in Louisiana was not an ideal neighborhood, to say the least.
According to Esquire, the number of killings and murders happening there during those times was almost three times higher than in Los Angeles. To compare, Los Angeles is 1,299 square kilometers big; Baton Rouge: 229.3 square kilometers only.
Lil Bossie - Torence (yes, one “r” only) Ivy G. Hatch in real life - grew up in Baton Rouge.
Born on November 14, 1982, he’s one of the reportedly eight children of Ivy R. Hatch (death: May 8, 1997; Lil Boosie was only 14) and Connie R. Givens-Hatch.
His siblings include Taquari “TQ” Jamar Hatch and a younger sister named (or nicknamed) Munchie.
Note: Most online sources would indicate the name of Lil Boosie’s father as “Torrence Hatch Sr.” However, in the obituaryof Thelma Robinson Givens (1926-2006), Lil Boosie’s maternal grandmother, his father’s name was listed as “Ivy R. Hatch.”
That’s also the same name included in the information about Connie Givens-Hatch at the American online directory services Whitepages.
Lil Boosie got kicked out in high school after an illegal drug involvement, according to AllMusic. Too bad because his impressive basketball skills made him a candidate for a college scholarship.
Then rapping became a part of his life, especially when he met C-Loc (born Steven Dewayne Carrell), one of Baton Rouge’s gangsta rappers. Lil Boosie joined Concentration Camp, a rap group formed by C-Loc in the mid-‘90s.
Lil Bossie’s debut as an artist occurred after getting featured in C-Loc’s 2000 album It’s A Gamble.
At 18, he gambled as an aspiring rapper by releasing his first studio album Youngest Of Da Camp.
His biggest break took place courtesy of Trill Entertainment. In 2002, he released his second album For My Thugzunder this record label. A deal with California-based production company Global Asylum eventually followed.
In 2006, Lil Boosie released the solo album Bad Azz.
He faced trial for murder and drug charges but was only found guilty of the latter. The sentence: eight-year imprisonment.
Lil Boosie served for almost five years only, from 2010 to March 2014.
While serving his time at Louisiana State Penitentiary, Atlantic Records, according to Esquire, offered him a three-year contract. He signed it.
The Guardian reported that he wrote songs and released mixtapes while in jail.
Soon after his release, he no longer introduced himself as Lil Boosie; rather, as Boosie BadAzz.
Note: Not to be confused with demised American rapper Bad Azz (born Jamarr Antonio Stamps; 1975-2019).

Aside from rapping his way into fame and fortune, Lil Boosie also tried being an entrepreneurthrough these ventures:
Boosie Juice (mix of kiwi and strawberry-flavored vodka)
Lil’ Boosie Louisiana Heat (potato chips)
Jewel House (clothing line)
He also founded his own record label called Badazz Music Syndicate.
Lil Boosie also makes profits as a - now hold your breath - minister. This controversial rapper is an ordained minister. So, he’s licensed to officiate weddings.
Per Revolt TV, he charges $75,000 (up to $100,000).
With his moolah, Lil Boosie kids occasionally get utterly spoiled.
When his eldest, Iviona, turned 16, according to The Focus, he gifted her with a Porsche Panamera. Per ABC Audio, Laila Jean once received a pair of diamond earrings and a Rolex watch as birthday presents.
