According to a press release by U.S. Attorney Jim Letten, B.G., real name Christopher Dorsey, was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm and conspiracy to obstruct justice
The charges stem from a November 2009 traffic stop in New Orleans where B.G. and two associates were caught with three guns, loaded magazines and extended clips. Two of the guns turned out to be stolen.
B.G. allegedly tried to get one of the men in the car, Demounde Pollard, to claim ownership of the guns. Pollard signed a false affidavit that said the guns didn’t belong to B.G. leading to the conspiracy charge.
The 30-year old rapper enjoyed huge success in the 90’s as a member of the Hot Boys along with Juvenile, Lil Wayne and Turk. A dispute with Cash Money CEO Birdman over money led to B.G. leaving the label in 2001 and forming his own imprint, Chopper City Records. His last album “Too Hood To Be Hollywood” was released in 2009.
