Bio

B.G., whose songs chronicled the gritty street life of hustlers and the high life of flashy MC's, has been a fixture in the New Orleans rap community since he signed with Cash Money Records at the age of 13.

Born Christopher Dorsey in New Orleans, LA, B.G. made his recording debut in 1995, on the Cash Money album True Story, also featuring Lil Wayne and Mannie Fresh.
Two albums -- Chopper City (1996), It's All on U, Vol. 1 (1997), and It's All on U, Vol. 2 (1997) -- followed, along with the debut album by the Hot Boys (a group featuring B.G.), Get It How U Live! (1997), before Cash Money signed a major-label distribution deal with Universal Records.

B.G.'s major-label debut Chopper City in the Ghetto came out in 1999. The album spawned the hit "Bling Bling", which reached platinum status and, along with Juvenile's "Back That Azz Up", made Cash Money a nationwide success. A second Hot Boys album, Guerrilla Warfare (1999), was released in the wake of this success, and it likewise went platinum, spawning a pair of hits ("We on Fire," "I Need a Hot Girl").

In 2002 B.G. formed his own label, Chopper City Records (distributed by Koch), and subsequently released Livin' Legend (2003). A series of Chopper City releases followed, including Life After Cash Money (2004), The Heart of tha Streetz, Vol. 1 (2005), The Heart of tha Streetz, Vol. 2 (2006), and We Got This (2007), the latter a collaborative album featuring his affiliate group, the Chopper City Boyz.
B.G.’s most recent release has been the acclaimed album Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood and his street album entitled HollyHood.
