Is BG Out Of Jail In 2022? Why Did B.G. Go To Jail? Reports Say He May Be Released From Prison Early!
Former Hot Boys rapper B.G. may be released early from the California prison where he is serving a 14-year sentence. According to online rumors, Birdman recently said during an I.G. Live session that his Cash Money Records protégé is scheduled to be released in a few weeks. That would mean B.G. (actual name Christopher Dorsey) could be removed approximately one year earlier than the April 7th, 2024, the date that was previously planned.
In September, Birdman did provide an update on B.G.’s release status via his Instagram account. The Cash Money Records co-founder stated as he tagged the 42-year Instagram, old’s “Be home in a minute.”
HipHopDX has contacted B.G.’s representatives to confirm the new release date.
Late in September, U.S. District Judge Susie Morgan denied a request by another federal prisoner to shorten the 14-year sentence of the Hot Boy rapper.
The September request, titled “The Court Misconstrued Defendant’s Motion,” argued that a letter submitted to the courts in 2021 was not intended to be a legal motion but rather an attempt to bring rapper B.G.’s displeasure.
The letter urged the court to review his compassionate release application and requested that the denial in 2021 not be held against him. Judge Morgan wrote in her decision, delivered three days after the 2022 motion was filed, that the rapper “has offered no new evidence that would affect the Court’s prior decision.”
In February of this year, after the Bureau of Prisons system went into lockdown due to violence at USP Beaumont, B.G. submitted his first request for an early release. At the time, he stated that “death and mayhem” were everyday occurrences in the federal institution where he was being kept and that the general public had no idea what was happening behind prison walls.
In addition, he asserted that his health concerns render him more sensitive to COVID-19, criticized his former attorney’s “incompetence,” and challenged prosecutors’ attempts to “cast him as a violent guy based on his rap songs, stating that the only thing he’s ever killed was a microphone.”
Is B.G. From Cash Money Getting An Early Release From Jail?
B.G. was initially scheduled to be released on April 7, 2024. However, it looks like he may have been liberated earlier. In a recent Instagram Live appearance, the CEO of Cash Money Records, Birdman, implied that the incarcerated rap singer would be released much earlier than expected.
Birdman has addressed the prospect before. In December, he posted a message directed at B.G., which read, “Be home in a minute.”
Birdman is the most directly-affiliated member of B.G.’s crew and has offered knowledge about the matter. Time will tell if the rapper is released earlier than his initially scheduled release date.
What Led To B.G.’s Arrest?
According to Wikipedia, B.G. was detained in New Orleans with three reported stolen firearms. In 2012, he was charged with gun possession and witness tampering, which led to his imprisonment. Since then, he has been serving time in federal prison.
