Cash Money Records artist, B.G. has been released from prison after 11 years in custody, and his day one CEO Birdman was front and center to greet him the moment he got out.
B.G. was sentenced to 14 years in prison for firearm possession and obstruction of justice back in 2012.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons’ office tells TMZ Hip Hop the 42-year-old rapper (real name Christopher Dorsey) was successfully transferred to community confinement and is projected to be fully released from custody on July 11, 2024.
B.G was captured on Birdman’s IG live as he embraced him and other friends outside the federal prison in Herlong, California, where he’d been for the past 11 years.
B.G. is a member of the original Hot Boys rap crew. He released several projects with Cash Money, most notably 1999’s “Chopper City In The Ghetto” which coined the timeless jewelry term “Bling Bling” on the lead single.
B.G. left Cash Money in 2001 but as evident in the video, he and Birdman are still close.
