B.G. Sentenced To 14 Years In Federal Prison

Former Hot Boy B.G. is headed to federal prison for weapon and witness tampering charges.

B.G.'s legal saga has come to an unfortunate conclusion for the New Orleans rapper.

Nola.com reports that the former Hot Boy was sentenced Wednesday (July 18) to 14 years in federal prison for gun possession and witness tampering.

The report provides that B.G. arrived in a jumpsuit, and sat in a wheelchair.

The rapper, who was arrested after a 2009 traffic stop, previously pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm. He then obstructed justice by convincing one of his associates to claim ownership of the gun.

Prosecutors reportedly sough a 25-year prison sentence, citing B.G.'s past criminal activity. Prosecutors also claimed that he was "profiting off of New Orleans' "cycle of violence," pointing to his music videos as an example, but U.S. District Judge Ginger Berrigan declined to use them as a basis for a lengthier sentence.

    "Or does it vary by each individual" There are no exceptions. Anyone who does something severe enough to get 14 years did it to themselves, talented or not. In BG's case, he wasn't very talented, but he can't say he wasn't given a shot.

    "14 bangers do u want him standing up to wild out on you" Probably not. He might have just wanted to shake the judge's hand though.

    Dont do the crime if you cant do the time, Free BG, hell no to much stupid niggas like this running around have chance to get rich, but like seee more ass hole that pussy hole, Peace nigga you out

  • yeaaahh

    Here we go with "free this" and "Real nigga that." That's what's wrong with the black community today. People consider guys like this real and glorify them instead of pointing out the good that others do. If you commit a crime you DESERVE to be punished, point blank. When will people realize that living like this is nothing but stupid..

  • Sco*

    Damm, a fourteen piece?! B.G. is a real nigga that made real nigga music..unfortunately in so many cases this is exactly how the story concludes....Its like the ultimate contradiction, if a nigga raps about real nigga shit and he's not living it, then he's considered "fake"/if a nigga raps about real nigga shit and he catches a fucked up bid, then he's "stupid" or "blew a great opportunity"....Which is it?.....Or are both arguments valid?...Or does it vary by each individual?....

      Nah they used them strapped wheel chairs for hostile violent out takes where they can strap your ass up in em and then give you some thorazine to calm your ass down if you flip out. If you about to give a niggah 14 bangers do u want him standing up to wild out on you? Saftey first...lol, maybe BG asked for it cause he couldn't take the news standing up- you know that joke niggahs say to the judge when he gives them 18 months, and they reply "I can do that shit standing on my head!"then he gives en 3 more years and say now you'll be sitting on your ass for the rest of the years...lol

    Shyne was the last f the real niggahs especially doing a bid for p.diddy/puffy. He got cash flow and he never told and his career suffered for it, but he living large albeit courtesy of puffy and a trust fund. BG must think he got it like that that a man would just turn over do a bid- nan niggah knows how bad both their records were to begin with, Some shit on your wrap sheet is considered 3 strikes to life; no one knows the personal situation but it is ugly 14 years for trying to strong arm your Co-Defendant? Damn son, thats hard time!But the feds is a sweet place to do time as opposed to state prison

    1 hot boy coming out (Turk) 1 going on (B.G.)...some niggas are just to dumb for their own good

  • Brick in your window...

    I think rappers are the dumbest criminals ever, I am a felon but at least I can read, Obviously his co-defendant wanted to take the charge and if the prosecutor wanted BG he was gon make his co-d look like he snitched. I would assume when they separated them (and prosecutors do this for effect) thats when BG tried ti reiterate he wanted the CO-D to take the charge based on his record. Everything can be recorded, letters could have been sent and via birds chirping. I don't know many men who gon take a 14 year bid for guns to save some one else and not get taken care of. Maybe BG didn't tell his family he would lace them with cash put a settlement in his canteen fund. sounds like the prosecutor played both their ass

  • Jin

    And if you idiots read the report, he was arrested with a friend Pollard. Pollard then claimed that the guns were his, but investigators found that BG forced him to try and make that claim. Pollard pled guilty and made a deal with the Feds (aka he ratted out BG). The more you fucking know...

  • Jin

    Ok seriously...did everyone miss the WITNESS TAMPERING part of the conviction, or did you idiots just read "gun possession" and start bitching about T.I. and shit. My god people need to learn to read. Witness tampering is punishable with up to 20 YEARS if physical violence was used. 14 is lenient you dumb fucks.

    • Up North

      The fact that B.G. is a prior felon is what swung the pendulum towards a heavier sentence.

    • Nuff said.....

      Ok...But The witness tampering charge came from him telling his homeboy to say the gun belonged to him. R kelly shoulda been charged with witness tampering for telling his brother to say it was him in the video. Did r.kelly get a 14 year sentence?..or sentenced at all? nope! The reason is money. Money money money money. It aint about justice its about profit. T.i. and lil wayne got off easy bcuz they have the money to do so. This sentence is way to harsh and is some bullshit.

    You live your life like an idiot, you suffer the consequences. I have more pity for him then most tho, we all heard the stories bout Birdman leaving him broke, dude was a heroin junkie by the time he was 12 and Cash Money didnt care so long as he sold records and remembered to give "Daddy" a kiss on command. Turk's life is all fucked up too and we all know wayne aint right in the head. Summin bout Birdman & the "Hot Boys" just always looked fucked up & perverse, what kind of grown man walks around kissing underage boys on the mouth and turns a blind eye while they shoot heroin into their arms. A Psychiatrist would have a field day with the whole situation.

      @Realtalk- thats what you have security fr to carry licensed guns. If you can't afford security then why carry the guns if your not prepared to do the time. Bullets count as years too. The witness tampering could be (the prosecutor only protects whites and put them in a witness protection program) but for BG and his Co-Defendant they got sucker punched to turn on each other and both got time. Obviously BG TOLD AND RATTED ON HIS CO-DEFENDANT. If he got caught strong arming him to take the charges then it was his mouth or actions from tampering with a witness that got them convictions; shit if the prosecutor stalled BG and moved his Co defendant to another jail or prison just to give the impression he working with the state even if he didn't say anything- that tactic eventually makes men ASSUME they menz snitched. If niggahs gon do crime at least understand law and tactics. Cause both of em talked somehow, whther it was accidental or in stupidity...Bad boy move in silence. they should have shut the ras clot up!

    • realtalk101

      The streets are now safer because an individual who was carrying fire arms to protect himself got 14 years? There is nothing to imply he possessed the weapons to inflict damage upon the public or any given individual, they obviously were for protection purposes or else they would have used them on the arresting officers.

    • realtalk101

      Cash Money took a young kid from the streets, that suffered from drug addiction, with little parental guidance if any, that had the inspiration to spit bars that they themselves could not and made him their cash cow, then pocketed every dollar he made and paid him off with a roof, cars, cloths and jewelry to project a certain portrayed image. When he began cleaning up and wanting to make a change with his life he told them okay you made all this money off me, I'm getting right and I would like to renegotiate our contractual agreement. After he brought them at least 2 if not 3 solo albums that easily sold over 500,000 units a piece not to include the compilation efforts and Hot Boy albums, they pretty much told him he can be replaced. Cash Money records may carry on today but it had a serious down time during the turn of the century and its rebound was in large portion off the back of B.G. & Juveniles earning. They are the ones that brought Cash Money Lil Wayne, not Baby. Anyhow long story short, I know I wouldn't sit under the wing of somebody that probably pocketed at least $10,000,000 if not a whole lot more off my efforts and tells me I can't have nothing.

  • dentaldamboy

    His real crime was turning his back on the Cash Money family, the same one that made him rich and gave him his big break. I don't blame the judge and the prosecutors for going hard at this guy. They saw he was a disloyal snake for how he treated Birdman. Fuck all the old cash money members. When Wayne is America's second black president, he will pass a law against criticizing the YMCMB family and being disloyal to Stunna.

  • realtalk101

    All I have to say is this is very sad news. I grew up on Hot Boys. B.G. is one of the realest to ever spit on a mic. Screw every one of you fake little chumps that say he deserves this. B.G. isn't a gangsta rapper, its not a persona, he was a spokesman for a generation, a product of a harsh and deadly environment, one of the most deadliest in the world. He helped teach a specific demographic of people that didn't have nothing, no hope, to change it. Very few of you cakes can even understand the dynamics of B.G.'s upbringing, let alone what he stood for to that specific demographic.

    • Powerphi

      @realtalk101 You have a good head on your shoulders brother, and make excellent points. I was unaware that Cash Money paid him with material items as you describe in response to my above message that I inadvertently posted anonymously. I was also unaware that he is a former drug addict who turned his life around. By all appearances, he has been mislead in one form or another for the better part of his life. You're very correct in pointing out that although he has never been a picture-perfect role model, his music positively impacts many people through a commonality in lifes circumstances. You should express your views on Huffington Post where a wider audience can benefit from your insightful postings. (This story is posted on the Black Voice page).

    • realtalk101

      To diss him is like to diss Pac, B.G. was one of the real early on rappers that came from nothing in a seriously poverty stricken location with an abundance of multiple homicides by the day. If anything he was stuck in the middle of a real war zone, in AMERICA. His lyrics reflected the mentality and human nature of his environment, he spoke for those people that had no voice. Maybe its beyond ignorant minded individuals to understand that. Vouch for the credibility of his words or not but I guarantee he helped people in certain predicaments out of concept of relayed knowledge through his experiences that allowed them to be inspired to pull through troubling situations, hes a ghetto hero. May not be your definition for what a hero is. With that said though, I can also tell you've never been under any suppressive circumstances because you can't even comprehend the impact.

      @ realtalk101 you dumbass dont act like BG is a hero.

    • realtalk101

      I agree, it would have been a better story had he made a positive change. However, sometimes the negatives sink your feet in so deeply that your anchored to them. Cash Money didn't pay him in checks, They paid him in material possessions (cars, jewelry, housing, expenses etc.) So he never really financially attained enough money to change his enviroment especially after leaving Cash Money for screwing him out of his money. He was on the back end of his career and got in position too late to implement the change.

    • Anonymous

      Too bad he couldn't lead by example. His repetitious criminality invariably lead to his detention. At the moment, he's just another product of his environment who can't defy the odds. I realize he was brought into this world under misfortunate circumstances, surrounded by ignorance, poverty, and disease. Nonetheless, he created a golden opportunity, and failed to take full advantage of his exceptional talent.

      If you were a high profiled individual, smack dab in the middle of a location that's been certified nearly year in and year out to be the murder capitol of the world, would you not be strapped? Also, I seriously doubt they jacked the car off the lot chances are it was rented and the bill went unpaid for a few days, then it was reported stolen. Cops sighted it, had all they needed to pull it over and found what they found.

You can tell the Prosecutors personal feelings influence him. BG was in precarious decision on one hand u have to protect yourself (Gun) on the other hand u might not be able to afford security, and then on the other hand U can end up in jail for owning a gun.
