B.G. Must Get All Future Songs Approved by U.S. Government Before Release


Rapper B.G. must get all of his future songs approved by the U.S. government before they are released to the public.

Before his next songs are recorded or released, the rapper, who was recently released from prison, is required to provide the federal government copies of the lyrics. If the lyrics are deemed to be at odds with his rehabilitation, prosecutors may attempt to modify the conditions of his supervised release.

U.S. District Court Judge Susie Morgan, who oversees the Eastern District of Louisiana, refused the prosecution’s request to prohibit B.G. “from promoting and glorifying future gun violence/murder” in any songs performed during his supervision, citing free speech concerns, the Guardian reported.

In 2012, BG received a 14-year prison term on two charges of possessing firearms and one count of conspiring to obstruct justice. After serving 11 years, he was freed in September of last year and is currently completing a three-year sentence under federal supervision.

That supervision became an issue when he began rapping again, particularly after he did a show in Las Vegas in February with Boosie Badazz, who has multiple felony convictions.
