BG Rapper Jail Sentence Release : A Cash Money Records rep said rapper BG, a Hot Boys founding member, has been released from prison. Christopher Dorsey, aka BG, met Birdman on September 5 during an Instagram Live session. This signaled the rapper’s freedom. The New Orleans native was supposed to be released from jail in April 2024, but it didn’t happen. In August 2023, The Jasmine Brand reported that BG would serve three years of probation before early release from jail.
BG was convicted for being a felon with a gun in New Orleans East in 2009. He admitted to the charge. During a traffic stop, police found a stolen car and three guns at a rental car company. BG supposedly instructed one friend to lie about having the gun. He later admitted to this, leading to charges of delaying justice.
On September 3, two days before his release, BG celebrated his birthday and freedom on Instagram, saying it would be his last time in jail. His post was a photo collection set to his song “F*** The Game Up.” He said he had been in jail for “12 winters and 13 summers” and was now more focused on being positive and productive. Born on September 3, 1980, BG gained fame in rap as a Hot Boys member with Lil Wayne, Turk, and Juvenile. Their early hits on the streets included “Neighborhood Superstars,” “Get It How U Live,” and “Ride or Die.”
“Bling Bling,” a popular song by BG, was featured on his debut album “Choppa City in the Ghetto,” released in 1999. The song is now a hit and describes flashy jewelry and a lavish lifestyle. Dorsey left Cash Money Records in 2001 and founded Chopper City Records. Birdman’s IG Live session for BG’s release also brought him gifts, making him visibly happy. Fans and social media peers welcome BG back and discuss his plans and potential collaborations.
The early release of BG comes as people in the U.S. discuss prison change and the criminal justice system, particularly for non-violent crimes. BG’s fame led to significant attention on his case, making his release highly significant in the music industry and beyond.
