B.G., who rapped alongside Lil Wayne, Juvenile, and Turk in the 1990s hip-hop group Hot Boys, has been released from federal prison, online records show. “After 12 winters and 13 summers, I see the end zone. It’s my last #Birthday being buried alive,” B.G. wrote on Instagram. “The main focus, is to stay focused. I’m not letting nobody rob me of my productivity, prosperity, positivity and peace of mind. My dreams then got bigger and my vision is clearer. 13 years was more then enough time for me to change the reckless path I was on.”
B.G. was arrested in New Orleans in November 2009 on gun possession charges after being pulled over by police. Demounde Pollard, who was also arrested during the traffic stop, told authorities that the guns belonged to him, but police later alleged that he made the claim at B.G.’s request. The case was eventually moved to federal court, and the rapper was sentenced to 14 years in prison in July 2012.
In 2015 and 2017, while B.G. was incarcerated, Lil Wayne got members of the Hot Boys back together at New Orleans events.
