Days after being sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for gun possession and witness tampering, B.G. says he’s ready to start his prison bid.
“I am just ready to get my sentence started because it’s not RIP BG it’s FREE BG … I feel happy and blessed that I will still be a young man and still be able to see daylight because I am someone, a dad, a brother and a son,” the 31-year-old rapper told TMZ.
He added that he’ll have upcoming music that will be released while he’s away.
B.G. had previously pled guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm during a 2009 traffic stop in eastern New Orleans. Police found three guns in total and the car itself was stolen from a rental parking lot.
Dorsey was later accused of trying to convince one of his two associates to falsely claim ownership of the weapon. One of the two associates, Demounde Pollard, claimed ownership of the gun, only for it to be later revealed that it belonged to Dorsey.
Making matters worse was the fact that prosecutors linked Dorsey in court filings to two of the city’s most high-profile alleged murderers, Telly Hankton and Walter Porter, who they say B.G. name-dropped in videos.
B.G. splashed onto the rap scene in the late 1990s as a member of the Hot Boys, alongside Lil Wayne, Juvenile and Turk.
Chopper City in the Ghetto was B.G.’s first solo album back in 1999. Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood 10 years later was his most recent solo offering.–Mark Lelinwalla
