A 31-year-old local rapper who gained international acclaim for his gritty songs detailing drug dealing, violence and a no-snitch mantra was sentenced Wednesday to 14 years in federal prison for gun possession and witness tampering. Christopher Dorsey, better known as B.G. or Baby Gangsta, was an original member of the 1990s rap super group the Hot Boys. His most recent album, “Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood,” came out in 2009 on Atlantic Records.
“BG wus very intricate in the NEW ORLEANS music movement! One luv ,,,I pray for an appeal” (2 Chainz’s Twitter)
I had a busy weekend after returning home on friday from visiting my boy Dan out in Ohio… So rather than making each of these individual tracks, i’m just going to post them all in one easy list for you… And I’m really not gonna take the time to re-upload them all… So here you go
BG describes his most recent arrest after leaving the daiquiri shop in New Orleans. I’ve never been to NO but I might have to go after this interview. Where else can you get a drink at a drive thru window???
“They waited for me to leave the daiquiri shop and they accused of us making a turn without using a turn signal and that was they proper cause to pull us over, and when they pulled us over they found 3 guns in the car. As of right now none of them are mine… One of my homies tried to take all the charges but they wouldn’t let him because they figured he was doing it for me.”
Thats the business, gotta love the south, drinks at the drive thru window for a great time!
Talks about how he became street oriented, speaks on his past drug use (”I Regret Using Dope When I Was 15″), how he became a rapper, Cash Money album, how he got signed, New Orleans, when he realized he made it & much more.
B.Gizzle spoke to XXL yesterday about his situation at Atlantic Records and his relationship with Baby, who was trying to get him off Atlantic.
He said that once T.I. got in trouble in 2007, they put his project on hold. Although he wasn’t signed to Grand Hustle, and even had his own “Chopper City Records” imprint, T.I. was the Executive Producer of the album and it has gotten pushed back 4 times.
Baby even offered to Executive Produce the album, but that didn’t work out. His old label, E1 (KOCH,) offered to help co-release the album, but Atlantic said they would drop him in that event.
Seeing this as an opportunity, B.G. will be dropping Too Hood 2 be Hollywood on December 8th, on Atlantic/E1/Chopper City Records.
And surely #signingtocashmoney soon thereafter. Hit the jump for part 2 of the interview.
