B.G. Ordered To Have All Future Songs Reviewed By The Government

The ‘Bling Bling’ rapper was released in September 2023 after over a decade behind bars.

B.G. is having his lyrics supervised by the government.

On Tuesday (July 2),  the Guardian reported that the “Bling Bling” rapper must provide the federal government with copies of his upcoming songs before they are produced or promoted. If the lyrics are considered inconsistent with his rehabilitation, prosecutors may move to tweak the terms of his supervised release.

This ruling came on Friday (June 28), when U.S. District Court Judge Susie Morgan, who oversees the Eastern District of Louisiana, refused the prosecution’s request to prohibit B.G. “from promoting and glorifying future gun violence/murder” in songs performed while on supervised release from prison, saying this restriction could violate his constitutional right to free speech, the outlet added.

The New Orleans native, who was formerly a part of the Hot Boys with Lil Wayne, Juvenile, and Turk, was arrested in 2009 during a traffic stop after an officer found three guns in his car — two of which were stolen.

B.G. was released from prison in September of last year after more than a decade behind bars.
