Some major breaking news comes from theJasmineBrand surrounding the situation with Hot Boys member, B.G. According to theJasmineBrand's sources close to B.G., he is going to be released from prison earlier than anticipated. That person is the artist's aunt, who confirmed this in a social media post. This is terrific news for him and his family as it was originally predicted he would not be a free man until at least April 7, 2024. The Cash Money 1993 signee was charged with accounts of witness tampering as well as illegal gun possession back in 2009.

According to reports and from theJasmineBrand, this all went down at a traffic stop in New Orleans. Authorities uncovered three guns, two of which were reported stolen, inside the vehicle B.G. was operating. Before that though, he was already booked on an illegal carrying of weapons charge. But, B.G. allegedly pressured one of his associates into falsely claiming ownership of the firearms. Then, two years later on December 7, 2011, he pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of a firearm and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice. Finally, in July 2012 B.G. was handed down 14 years in federal prison on top of three years of federal supervision after his release.
