Why Is Rapper BG In Jail?
The incident dates back to 2009 when Rapper BG was driving back from his partner’s home. He was apprehended at a traffic stop by the Orleans police. When the police checked his vehicle, they discovered three firearms in the vehicle. After more investigation, they discovered the shocking truth that two of these firearms were stolen.
So Rapper BG was having illegal possession of weapons. He was immediately arrested and put on a trial. It was shocking for fans to know about it because BG had been gaining popularity during that time. His albums were getting popular and were huge hits.
BG was earlier part of the Hot Boys group, but he later left the group due to some financial distress and conflict among the members. But that did not stop him from gaining success. He was getting fame and popularity as a solo artist.
So when the news of his arrest became viral, fans were in shock. Some suspected that this was a ploy. And it was just an attempt to defame him. But when Rapper BG himself pleaded guilty to illegal weapon possession as well as tampering with witnesses, it became clear that he had committed a grave crime.
Has Rapper BG Been Released From Jail?
Rapper BG has tried extensively to get out of jail. But all his efforts have failed. And the recent news of him getting an early release is also mere speculation based on the post of Birdman. Rapper BG whose real name is Christopher Noel Dorsey, has filed 2-3 motions to get a release.
The first one was filed in February, where he mentioned how he could become a victim of Covid-19 due to his pre-existing health conditions. But the judge didn’t approve the petition by stating that there were not enough compelling reasons to ensure release on compassionate grounds for Rapper BG.
Rapper BG again filed for an early reason in June, and it was rejected. Now it was clear that there was no way for Rapper BP to escape from jail before completing his sentence.
Birdman’s Efforts To Get BG Released
Birdman has proved to be a true friend of BG.
Birdman has given an update about Rapper BG’s early release, but right now, he is still lodged in jail. A letter written by Birdman earlier this year garnered an emotional response. In the letter written to the judge of the case, Birdman advocated the early release of BG.
Birdman wrote that BG’s release would be beneficial. He has gone through a lot of ups and downs. When he shares his experience with another young man, then that will definitely help them get on the right path. A lot of youth get misguided, and BG can provide them with an essential message, as BG does have that kind of impact and influence.
Before this, BG had made attempts to get an early release from prison; during the Covid pandemic, he filed a petition stating that his health could get worse in jail. Therefore he should be released keeping his health issues in mind. Like the judge rejected his plea stating that there was no neglect on the part of prison officials that would affect his health. Hence there was no reason to release BG on moral or compassionate grounds.
