ANGOLA, La. (AP) — Rapper Lil' Boosie has been released from the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola, where he had been serving an eight-year sentence on drug charges.

Warden Burl Cain says the 31-year-old rapper — whose real name is Torrence Hatch — left the prison just after 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Cain said Hatch remains on supervised parole until 2018.

Hatch first arrived at Angola in 2009 after pleading guilty to a third-offense marijuana possession charge. Since then, he's faced numerous accusations, including a highly publicized murder trial in the 2009 killing of Terry Boyd. Hatch was acquitted of first-degree murder in Boyd's death in May 2012.

The warden said the time and date of Hatch's release wasn't made public "just to keep everything calm."
