Who is rapper B.G.?

B.G., which is short for Baby Gangsta, began rapping at the age of 12 when he signed to Cash Money Records.

He would later join Lil Wayne (Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.), Juvenile (Terius Gray), and Turk (Tab Virgil Jr.) in 1997 to form the infamous New Orleans, Louisiana rap group, Hot Boys

The group would churn out several classic tunes like “We On Fire” and “I Need A Hot Girl.”

After millions of records were sold, Turk, B.G., and Juvenile left Cash Money over financial issues.

B. Gizzle is best known for his hit single, “Bling Bling,” featured on his 1999 album, Chopper City in the Ghetto.

Prison Sentence

On November 3, 2009, B.G. was arrested in New Orleans after police pulled over his Chevy Tahoe during a routine traffic stop.

During a search of his vehicle, police found three guns, who of which were reported stolen.

The rapper ultimately pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of a firearm and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice.

On July 18, 2012, B. Gizzle was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison and three years of federal supervision upon his release.

Welcome Home

I’m sure B.G.’s family is thrilled to have him home, especially his son, Christopher, and his daughter, Christiane.

Houston rap legend, Bun B, took to his Instagram page to share his excitement about B.G.’s release after receiving a FaceTime call from him and Birdman.

He wrote, “The call we been waiting for! @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!”
