Jameis Winston phoned Lil Boosie the day after national championship

What does the star of a national championship team do the day after winning it all? For Jameis Winston, it means giving a ring to rapper Lil Boosie in prison.

According to TMZ Sports, the Heisman Trophy winner is a huge fan of the high profile rapper. Winston would routinely quote Lil Boosie's lyrics to the team, on social media, and even during interviews with reporters. The Florida State signal caller even rocked out to Lil Boosie's music before taking the field in the BCS National Championship Game.

Eventually word got around to Lil Boosie that Winston is a huge fan. As fate would have it, the rapper is also a fan of Winston. So, Boosie sent Winston a message asking him if he wanted to chat sometime. That moment reportedly came on Jan. 7 when Winston phoned Lil Boosie at the Angola State Penitentiary.

"We chopped it up," said Winston to TMZ. "I told him I was a fan of his also."

Boosie, who was behind bars on account of drug charges, reportedly told Winston to "stay focused" moving forward. And he also let Winston know that he'll be rooting for him despite being an LSU fan.
