The Baton Rouge, La.-based rapper is also facing first-degree murder charges.

Rapper Lil Boosie could face extra jail time for attempting to smuggle a drug cocktail called "sizzurp" into prison, the Associated Press reports.

Lil Boosie, a 28-year-old rapper from Baton Rouge, is already serving time on another drug charge.

Boosie is awaiting trial on a first-degree murder charge, for which he could be sentenced to the death penalty.

An East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury indicted Hatch on one count of criminal conspiracy to take contraband to and from a penal institution, and another count of inciting a felony.

According to CBS affiliate WAFB, a "confidential source" told authors about the rapper's alleged drug smuggling scheme on April 9.

He thought he was giving the codeine syrup mixture to a security worker at the prison, but it was really a state trooper.
