Cash Money rapper, B.G., is reportedly being released from prison a year early after In 2012 he was sentenced to 14 years on gun, witness tampering charges

Cash Money rapper B.G. is reportedly being released from prison a year early. In 2012 he was sentenced to 14 years on gun, witness tampering charges.

B.G. may be leaving the California prison where he’s currently serving out the remaining few months of a 14-year sentence earlier than expected.

Reports have surfaced online that, during a recent IG Live session, Birdman announced that his Cash Money Records protégé is set to be released in a few weeks. That would mean B.G. (real name Christopher Dorsey) could be a free man about a year earlier than his last reported projected release date of April 7, 2024.

HipHopDX has reached out to representatives for B.G. to confirm the updated release date.

In late September, U.S. District Judge Susie Morgan rejected a motion submitted by another federal prisoner, requesting to have the Hot Boy 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.”Morgan had previously denied a motion submitted by B.G. in June, which was supported by letters from Birdman, Slim, Wendy Day and Gary Payton, Sr., among others.

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.

B.G., born Christopher Noel Dorsey, is currently serving a 14-year sentence in federal prison after pleading guilty to gun possession and witness tampering in 2012. His sentence stemmed from a 2009 arrest in New Orleans when police discovered three firearms—two of which were stolen—in B.G.’s possession during a traffic stop. Earlier this year, Birdman penned a letter to the “Bling Bling” rapper’s judge advocating for his release. At the time, Baby wrote: “He is not only a generational artist, but he’s got a platform and the chance to share his experience to better today’s young men who need to hear what he’s got to say. When he is released, I know he will give back and use what he’s gone through to help as many people as possible.”

In September, U.S. District Judge Susie Morgan rejected a motion submitted by another federal prisoner, urging to have the New Orleans rapper’s sentence shortened. The same judge also denied a June gesture asking for his release with supporting letters from Birdman, his brother Slim, Wendy Day, and more.

One of B.G.’s motions dating back to February outlined health issues that could easily make him susceptible to COVID-19. However, all of B.G.’s attempts for an early release have been denied.
