Birdman has offered another update regarding B.G. and his pending prison release, and has claimed that the former Hot Boys member should “be home in a minute.”
On Friday (March 10), the Cash Money Records founder posted a pic of his protégé — who is currently serving out a 14 year sentence in a California prison— on Instagram, giving fans an update on how the rapper has been.
In the pic, B.G. (real name Christopher Dorsey) sported a Khaki colored uniform, with what appears to be a very icy watch, letting people know, the drip doesn’t stop no matter the place.
The Louisiana rapper’s initial release date was scheduled for early April 2024, but according to Birdman’s photo caption, he’ll “Be home in a minute heart of tha streets @new_bghollyhood #CCRG #Cashmoneymillionaire @cashmoneyofficial.”
This isn’t the first time that Birdman has hinted towards B.G.’s prison release being imminent, despite yet having been freed. This past December, a video was uploaded to the imprisoned rapper’s Instagram documenting Birdman’s journey to the Federal Correctional Institution in Herlong, California to visit B.G., where he’s been incarcerated since 2012.
The clip followed a number of recent rumors that suggested the Chopper City rapper may be freed well ahead of his 2024 release date. Prior to B.G.’s post, reports surfaced online that Birdman shared an IG Live revealing the rapper was set to be released in a few weeks.
In late September, U.S. District Judge Susie Morgan rejected a motion submitted by another federal prisoner, requesting to have the rapper’s 14-year sentence commuted.
Titled “The Court Misconstrued Defendant’s Motion,” the September request argued that a letter submitted to the courts in 2021 wasn’t intended to be a legal motion, but rather an attempt to raise awareness about B.G.’s displeasure with how his attorney had handled a previous compassionate release motion.
The letter encouraged the court to reconsider him for a compassionate release and asked for the 2021 denial not to be held against him. In her decision, issued three days after the 2022 motion was submitted, Judge Morgan stated that the rapper “has offered no new evidence that would affect the Court’s prior decision.”
B.G.’s first request for an early release this year came in February, after the entire Bureau of Prisons system went into lockdown due to violence in USP Beaumont. At the time, he wrote that “murder and mayhem” were normal occurrences in federal facility where he was being held and that the public had no idea what was really going on behind prison walls.
He also claimed his health issues make him more susceptible to COVID-19, chiding his previous attorney for “incompetence” and refuted prosecutors’ attempts to “paint him as a violent individual due to his rap lyrics, adding that the only thing he’s ever killed was a microphone.”
B.G.’s original 14-year sentence was handed down in July 2012 after the rapper pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm, and obstructed justice by convincing an associate to claim ownership of the gun.
