Lil' Boosie is something of a cult hero to some in Louisiana.

The rapper is a native of the state and was born just a few miles from LSU's Baton Rouge campus.

And after being released recently from Louisiana State Penitentiary after serving four yours for drug charges, he has been quick to try and do his bit for the state's college football team:

"First of all I wanna talk to all the kids in high school, all the stars.

"Man, go on and come to Baton Rouge, go and put on that yellow jersey," Boosie said in an interview with LSU Tiger TV.

And he wasn't impressed with the rise of Alabama either:

"Nick Saban's getting all our recruits...we ain't getting all the recruits like we used to!"

LSU finished national signing day as the number two ranked school in the nation after securing a strong class of 2014 which included #1 rated running back Leonard Fournette.

The only school to finish above them? The Crimson Tide.

And Lil' Boosie was adamant there is only one way of securing success in the NCAA: 

"We need to bring back  those number one players and get it together man. 'Cos I'm going to bet the house on LSU every time, win, lose or draw," he continued.

We arn't sure if the school athletic program, and head coach Les Miles, will be happy to have such a controversial figure backing them for success.

But with the rapper remaining popular despite his troubles maybe his words will inspire some young football players to head to Tiger Stadium in the future.
