B.G. Purportedly To Be Released From Jail This Week

By Edem Latsu Nukafu

Cash Money’s B.G. will soon be set free from jail after serving more than a decade of incarceration.

The Jasmine Brand disclosed that the rapper is set to be freed from lockup for his “probationary period” and could be home as soon as this week. Birthed  Christopher Dorsey, B.G. was apprehended in 2009 following a traffic stop in New Orleans, during which police found three guns, two of which were stolen.

In 2011, the Hot Boys member pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of a firearm and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice, receiving a 14-year federal jail sentence the following year, with three years of federal supervised release.

The rapper had earlier attempted to gain compassionate release from jail during the COVID-19 pandemic but was repudiated three times. According to U.S. District Judge Susie Morgan, she “did not find any gross neglect that affected the outcome” of the 42-year-old’s motion.

Birdman also wrote a letter in an endeavour to convince the judge that B.G. could have a positive influence on society and had turned over a new leaf during his jail term. “He is not only a generational artist, but he’s got a platform and the chance to share his experience to better today’s young men who need to hear what he’s got to say,” the Cash Money Records founder wrote. “When he is released, I know he will give back and use what he’s gone through to help as many people as possible.”
