Former Cash Money Rapper B.G. Arrested and Charged For Violating Probation

The New Orleans native was released from prison in September after serving an 11-year sentence.

B.G., who rose to fame as a member of the Hot Boys on Cash Money Records, was arrested and charged with violating his probation by performing at a concert in Las Vegas, NOLA reports.

On Feb. 8, B.G., whose real name is Christopher Dorsey, took the stage with Lil Boosie and Gucci Mane. He also recorded the Choppers and Bricks album with Gucci Mane and released music videos on Apple Music and YouTube in February. Before shooting and posting the music videos, B.G. needed the court’s permission but he failed to get it.

According to the terms of his probation, B.G. is required to have explicit permission from the court before “entering into self-employment.”

Also, because Boosie and Gucci Mane are felons, B.G. needed permission “to associate with those convicted of felony charges” which the court said he didn't do.

After being questioned by federal probation officers following the concert, he was told that he should find another form of employment.

“I’m a rapper. That (is) my profession,” B.G. responded, per court documents.

B.G. was reportedly released on Wednesday, March 27.

Taking to Instagram, B.G. expressed his frustration with the terms of his probation since his release.

“It’s crazy how after paying my debt to society with 12 and a half years of my life, I come home and still ain’t free,” Dorsey wrote in a post on Instagram on Friday (March 29). “I've been doing everything the right way, and it seems like that ain’t enough.

“I've been going through it behind the scenes and got a muzzle on for the time being, but I’m confident I’ll come out on TOP. I always do.”

Following a successful tenure at Cash Money Records, B.G. was sentenced to 14 years in prison for felony gun possession and witness tampering in 2012. 

"I am relieved I found out what my fate was yesterday because I was facing 30 years and my case kept getting pushed back," B.G. said at the time. "I am just ready to get my sentence started because it’s not RIP BG it’s FREE BG ... I feel happy and blessed that I will still be a young man and still be able to see daylight because I am someone, a dad, a brother and a son."

After serving an 11-year sentence, B.G. was released from prison in 2023.

No date has been given for B.G.’s next court appointment.
