B.G.’s music career began at the age of 12, when he met Bryan “Birdman” Williams and Ronald “Slim” Williams, the founders of Cash Money Records, in a barbershop. Impressed by his talent, they signed him to their label, bestowing upon him the moniker Lil’ Doogie. Eventually, he adopted the stage name B.G., an abbreviation for Baby Gangsta.

He soon united with fellow rappers Lil Wayne, Juvenile, and Turk to form the renowned group Hot Boys, a powerhouse in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Their second album, “Guerrilla Warfare,” released in 1999, achieved platinum status and secured the #5 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. The Hot Boys were celebrated for their unfiltered, gritty style of rap, heavily influenced by their upbringing in the crime-ridden streets of New Orleans. Alongside their producer Mannie Fresh and mentor Birdman, they played a pivotal role in popularizing Southern hip-hop culture and sound.

However, B.G.’s relationship with Cash Money Records eventually soured due to financial disputes and creative disagreements. Consequently, in 2001, he departed from the label and established his own, Chopper City Records, where he continued to release music independently.

In 2009, Baby Gangsta faced legal troubles when police discovered three firearms in his vehicle, two of which were reported stolen. He pled guilty in 2011 and received a 14-year prison sentence, the majority of which he served in a federal prison. 

On May 11, 2021, his request for compassionate release was denied by a judge due to multiple instances of drug and alcohol use during his prison sentence.

Earlier this week, B.G. celebrated his last birthday behind bars. Taking to Instagram on Sunday, September 3, the Louisiana native announced his impending return to freedom.

“After 12 winters and 13 summers, I see the end zone. It’s my last #Birthday being buried alive. This year I’m celebrating the whole Virgo cycle, matter of fact, from this year forward I’m living and celebrating like everyday is #MyBIRTHDAY

He reflected, “13 years was more than enough time for me to change the reckless path I was on.”
