Former Hot Boy B.G. Pleads Innocent To Gun Charges In Louisiana. Could Face Lengthy Jail Sentence If Found Guilty


B.G., a prominent local hip-hop artist and longtime collaborator with superstar Lil Wayne, pleaded innocent to a gun charge Thursday in Orleans Parish Criminal District Court.

Christopher Dorsey, 29, who raps under the moniker B.G. or Baby Gangsta, was arrested with two other men in November for allegedly possessing three weapons, along with loaded magazines and two extended clips, while driving in eastern New Orleans. Police said two of the three guns had been previously reported stolen.

Officers from the NOPD's 7th District halted the late-model Chevrolet Tahoe after watching the driver commit a traffic violation, police said. Dorsey and Jerod Fedison, 18, were each booked with a count of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. A third man, Demounde Pollard, was booked on gun and drug charges, but prosecutors later dropped the case, according to court records. Fedison, meanwhile, has pleaded innocent.

Dorsey, a resident of St. Rose, has a lengthy rap sheet, and is facing stiff penalties if found guilty on the gun charge.

A request for comment from Dorsey's publicist was not immediately returned Thursday evening.

Last year, he pleaded guilty in Jefferson Parish to driving while intoxicated and was ordered to a serve two years' probation. As part of his sentence, he was to undergo drug testing. He failed a test late last year, and was ordered in Orleans Parish on Thursday to pay $350 to the judicial expense fund and undergo another drug test next week, court records show.

Amid the mounting legal troubles, Dorsey released a well-received rap album, "Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood, " in December on Atlantic Records.

Dorsey has been rapping for more than 15 years. He grew up in Uptown, and was member of the Hot Boys ensemble, which boasts such big names as Lil Wayne, Juvenile and Young Turk.

Lil Wayne, or Dwayne Carter, an international superstar raised in Hollygrove, is facing his own legal troubles in New York. He is due to be sentenced next month on a gun charge and has a plea deal worked out that calls for a one-year stint in jail, according to the Associated Press.
