B.G. continues his rapid rehabilitation, receiving a commendation from a foundation that aims to re-integrate former prisoners back into society.
According to its website, the Hope For Prisoners Foundation “assists with reentry by providing the formerly incarcerated long-term support and services as they work to reclaim their lives, families and standing in the community. We give them hope. Hope changes lives.”
And that’s exactly where B.G. got a commendation from, which he proudly shared on Instagram on Saturday (September 23).
“Waaahhhh!!! Yesterday I crossed another hurdle on this field of life…it feels good to grow, evolve, and be a better man now then I was before I went to jail,” he wrote. “Since I came home I noticed a lot of people are the same people I left, but I’m not the same dude that left.”
He continued: “For all my haters keep hating and for all my supporters ima make y’all proud…thank you to my kids, my team, friends,and fans for traveling this journey with me and pushing me to be GREAT…y’all ain’t seen nothing yet..real n-ggas back in style… #RNS [100 emoji] Heart of The Streets 3 #ComingSoon.”

In 2012, B.G. was condemned to 14 years behind bars after pleading guilty to two counts of possession of a firearm and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice stemming from a 2009 traffic stop arrest.
Soon after his release, Birdman announced that the 43-year-old would be rejoining Cash Money Records, the label he called home during the height of his career, now that he’s a free man. Speaking on The 85 South Show, he confirmed the New Orleans rapper will once again be a member of the Cash Money family.
“For the record, I just want n-ggas to know that my n-gga [B.G.] official Cash Money — ain’t no cap in that,” Birdman declared.
“Ya heard me? Ain’t nobody he can ever sign with beside this shit. I’m bringing all this shit together. B.G. signed to Cash Money so y’all don’t got to hear it from nowhere else.”
Birdman’s comments may have possibly been aimed at fellow Southern rap mogul Gucci Mane, who last year offered to give B.G. a $1million record deal upon his release from prison.
“My 1017 family help me welcome home the living legend @BGHollyHood!” Guwop tweeted after since-debunked rumors of B.G.’s release began circulating.
“Glad u home bruh! Got so much love and respect for u as a man and artist! Get at me, I got a milli for u! Wanna sign u to 1017!!!!! #1017Mafia [money bag emojis].”
