New Orleans rapper Baby Gangsta aka B.G. former member of the Hot Boys, Lil Wayne’s group formed in the 90′s has been sentenced to 14 years jail time for gun charges. Damn when heroine take control and money from record sales stopped flowing, and all your old friends have moved on to continue making millions, and you’re all tapped out…..this is what it leads to?
A 31-year-old local rapper who gained international acclaim for his gritty songs detailing drug dealing, violence and a no-snitch mantra was sentenced Wednesday to 14 years in federal prison for gun possession and witness tampering. Christopher Dorsey, better known as B.G. or Baby Gangsta, was an original member of the 1990s rap super group the Hot Boys. His most recent album, “Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood,” came out in 2009 on Atlantic Records.
Christopher Dorsey, who raps under the moniker B.G. or Baby Gangsta, was sentenced Wednesday to 14 years in federal prison.
The New Orleans-born rap artist toured the world, but a 2009 traffic stop in eastern New Orleans — combined with a lengthy criminal history — marked the end of his freedom.
In federal court Wednesday, the hefty Dorsey wore a jail jumpsuit, and for unknown reasons, sat in a wheelchair. His demeanor was a far cry from the grinning, on-top-of-the-world hip-hop hero who drove fancy cars and cavorted with scantily-clad women in music videos.
Dorsey had previously pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm during a 2009 traffic stop in eastern New Orleans. But later, he obstructed justice by pushing one of his two associates to falsely claim ownership of the gun.
Dorsey confessed to the crimes but prosecutors made clear that he was not cooperating, staying in line with the “no-snitch” philosophy he so often espoused in his songs.
In “I Ain’t Tellin”, he raps: “I won’t snitch, never tell, if the law comes and get me, I’m gonna sit my ass in jail.”
And in one his recent videos, Dorsey makes an apparent reference to his own case, proclaiming “This f–king ratting s–t, man, this s–t here is getting out of hand,” he says. “Man, it’s call T-Y-C. Take Your Charge.”
Dorsey was arrested with Demounde Pollard, 20, and Jerod Fedison, 30. Police found three guns, along with loaded magazines. Two of the guns had been reported stolen and the car itself had been stolen from an Alamo rental car parking lot.
Pollard confessed to ownership of the guns, though it was later revealed to be at the behest of Dorsey.
The state criminal case was eventually moved to federal court and both Pollard and Fedison pleaded guilty, paving the way for the charges against Dorsey. Pollard reached a plea agreement with prosecutors and was sentenced to 30 months in prison; Fedison, with an extensive criminal record, received a 20-year sentence.
