Baton Rouge rapper Torrence "Lil Boosie " Hatch has pleaded not guilty to several charges including first-degree murder.
Hatch appeared Monday before state District Judge Mike Erwin.
Hatch's attorney, Marcus Allen, spoke after the hearing and said Hatch is "absolutely not guilty."
As previously reported , Hatch is accused of paying a man to kill 35-year-old Terry Boyd, who was shot to death through a window while inside his home on Oct. 21. Two other Baton Rouge men also face first-degree murder charges in Boyd's death.
