B.G., the founding member of Cash Money Records‘ Hot Boys, was released from prison yesterday after serving an 11-year sentence. Since then, B.G. has been busy catching up with his friends in the hip-hop community, and hopped on his Instagram Story to share welcome home messages from fans and others.
What Has B.G. Been Doing Since Being Released From Prison?
On Tuesday (Sept. 5), XXL confirmed that B.G. had been released from prison after being incarcerated for almost a decade. In 2012, Baby Gangsta, popularly known as B.G., was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for gun possession and witness tampering. Once B.G. became a free man, Birdman hopped on Instagram Live and recorded himself greeting B.G. at what seems to be an airport, which can be seen below. Additionally, Birdman gifted the New Orleans rapper with an icy pendant.
“The call we been waiting for!” Bun B typed in the caption of the post below. “@birdman hit me up to show me @new_bghollyhood is a free man! This put a smile on my face! God is great! Hot Boys reunion coming soon!”
B.G. has also been working on new music. On Wednesday (Sept. 6), the rapper went on Instagram and uploaded a snippet of his upcoming single. In the caption for the post, B.G. hinted at dropping a new record soon.
“The rebirth of the #ComeBackKid #RealN***a Season #OTW,” B.G. typed in the caption of the post below. “The love and support is overwhelming [praying hands emoji].
Thank you for holding a real n***a down. #IAppreciateYOU [100 emoji]. I will not disappoint you #WorthTheWait [music note emoji]. #BGFREE #LivingLegend.”
Additionally, he’s been sharing dozens of messages from fans on Instagram and reposting them on his Instagram stories.
Why Did B.G. Go to Prison?
In 2009, B.G. pled guilty to being in possession of a firearm during a traffic stop in the New Orleans East area. After the cops pulled B.G. over, they discovered three firearms and learned that B.G.’s vehicle was stolen from a rental car parking lot. B.G.‘s sentencing happened after he asked one of his two associates to falsely claim ownership of the weapon, which the rapper later confessed to.
