Following his release from federal prison earlier this month, B.G. recently hit the studio to record music for the first time in over a decade.
On Sunday (Sept. 17), the rapper, who was released from custody on Sept. 5 after serving a 14-year sentence, shared a clip of himself in the studio on his Instagram account. The video captures B.G. rapping into a mic while reciting lines from a notepad, as well as listening back to his recordings while interacting with the engineer helping to record his vocals.
The 43-year-old can be seen dancing excitedly at the sound of his music, looking into the camera in a cocksure manner before the clip ends. In the caption of the post, which is soundtracked by B.G.’s 2009 release “Back to the Money” featuring Magnolia Chop, the rapper reveals that the studio session was made possible after receiving a recreational pass that allowed him to record.
“Waaahhh!!” B.G. wrote, voicing his excitement. “They finally gave me a recreational pass and I took that time to do what I do best. I f**ked that studio up today for the 1st time in almost 13 years.”
The Chopper City creator also warned that his skills as a lyricist and songwriter hadn’t been diminished in spite of his long layoff. “Anybody who think I lost it is about to have a whole pie in they face..” he added, teasing a forthcoming musical release, which will be his first post-prison. “Real ni**as back in style.. Heart of the Streets 3 #ComingSoon,” he concluded.
Addressing rumors regarding a possible bidding war brewing over B.G.’s services, Cash Money Records CEO Bryan “Birdman” Williams assured that the rapper would make his musical return under the label’s umbrella. “For the record, I just want ni**as to know that my ni**a [B.G.] official Cash Money — ain’t no cap in that,” the mogul said during an appearance on The 85 South Podcast.
He then reiterated his statement, debunking any reports to the contrary. “Ya heard me? Ain’t nobody he can ever sign with beside this sh*t.” Birdman added. “I’m bringing all this sh*t together. B.G. signed to Cash Money so y’all don’t got to hear it from nowhere else.”
