Rapper B.G. pleads guilty to felony gun charge

- Associated Press - Thursday, December 8, 2011

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans rapper B.G., an original member of the late-1990s rap group Hot Boys that included big-name rappers such as Lil Wayne, Juvenile and Young Turk, has pleaded guilty in a gun case that could lead to 40 years behind bars.

The Times-Picayune reports (http://bit.ly/w4ZoyR) that the 31-year-old rapper, whose real name is Christopher Dorsey, pleaded guilty Wednesday to being a felon in possession of a firearm and witness tampering.

Prosecutors allege that Dorsey has ties to some of the city's most high-profile criminals. But they said no plea agreement has been made with Dorsey.

Many of Dorsey's songs have a "no snitch" motto. 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."

Dorsey's sentencing is March 14.
