Famed rapper BG (pictured) who helped to put the mega-million-dollar Cash Money Records dynasty on the map, was sentenced to 14 years on Wednesday for possession of a firearm, conspiring to obstruct justice, and other charges, according to WWLTV.

The indictment charges Dorsey with conspiring to obstruct justice with two other individuals, Jerod Fedison and Demounde Pollard, and alleges that these three individuals “conspired with each other to obstruct justice by getting Pollard to sign a false affidavit attesting that neither Fedison nor Dorsey possessed three firearms on November 3, 2009,” said a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Fedison and Pollard pleaded guilty to their charges, with Fedison receiving a sentence of 20 years and Pollard receiving 30 months in prison.

Watch BG being interviewed about his gun charges here:

BG, which stands for B. Gizzle or Baby Gangsta, began his career at Cash Money back in 1993.  He was half of a duo, The BG’z, with the other member being none other than hip-hop icon Lil Wayne.  Both performers along with rap stars Juvenile and Young Turk formed The Hot Boys in 1997.

Four years later, BG, whose real name is Christopher Dorsey, left Cash Money over a financial dispute to create his own recording label, Chopper City Records. The rap supernova continued to make recording company moves and spit hard-core, reality-based lyrics, but his flow came to a temporary halt, when in March 2011, he was indicted on a gun charge that came back to haunt him from a 2009 arrest.

The earlier incident occurred when the artist was pulled over by New Orleans police for a routine traffic stop.  When officers searched BG’s vehicle, they stumbled upon three guns, two of which were hot.

At BG’s sentencing, the presiding judge also gave him three years of supervised release at the end of his prison term.
