More bad news for Boosie Bad Ass. The rapper has been accused in court of paying $15,000 to have a rival rapper killed. The alleged target was Christopher "Nussie" Jackson, who was gunned down in the 2009 hit by then 16-year-old Michael "Marlo Mike" Louding. The accused teen gunman is presently standing trial for the murder as the sole defendant.

According to the prosecution, Jackson's death was one of multiple hits demanded by Lil Boosie, who is currently behind bars awaiting trial for his involvement in another murder allegedly carried out by Louding. The young Baton Rouge native is currently wanted in six killings, but only Jackson's and another, that of a man named Terry Boyd, have so far been tied to Boosie.

In court, Louding fingered Boosie in a videotaped confession, saying Jackson became a target after disrespecting one of the "Wipe Me Down" rapper's associates.

Already facing such severe charges, Boosie's problems have extended while behind bars. He was recently indicted for conspiring to introduce codeine into a Louisiana state prison.
