Turk Says B.G. May Be Out Of Jail This Year
All throughout his career, he's always has been a beast in the studio. When we was doing Chopper City In The Ghetto, he already had the name of what he want it to be. He wanted it to represent his block. So he went extra hard on what he was doing. A lot of stuff, the craziness is this: everything he was rapping was true to form—everything he was saying in those raps—and dude was really living that. We just took it as, Man, this dude is a brilliant rapper from the ghetto point of view. He was really telling his story. Chopper City In The Ghetto, a lot of it was B.G.'s real story.
A lot of songs would [start with] him rapping a capella first. We never really knew where dude got his songs from. It [would] just be like, “Hey man, I got this idea, I’m coming through tonight.” He would come through and start rapping a song, [and] I would just fill in the blanks. I’m like, "Okay dude, just tell me what you want to talk about." And he'd be like, "This is what the hook is going to be like, and this is going to be the first verse of it,” and from there I kind of just groomed the music around what he was staying.
Where did y’all record?
We recorded everywhere. We recorded Chopper City In The Ghetto in a house that we was living in. Two studios; I want to say one of them was around St. Charles St., one of them was around Canal St. We probably did that album in 2 weeks. That was the norm for a Cash Money album.
Original Hot Boys member B.G. has been serving a 14-year prison sentence stemming from a weapons possession and witness tampering charge for the past two years. But, according to fellow 'Nawlins rapper Turk, B.G. may be getting out as soon as this year due to a "legal loophole."
Turk, who was recently released from Forrest City Prison in Arkansas after serving nine years for a weapons violation said that B.G., "Ain't coming home on no snitch pass. When he come home, he done found a loophole in the law which they gave him more time than they were supposed to give him."
Turk didn't specify what the loophole is but did say that, "He is in court right now on appeal...I'm lookin' forward to B.G. comin' home, man. It could be this year, it could be first thing next year but he'll be home for sure. Y'all gonna be shocked that he's home and we gonna rip up these streets like we been doing."
