During an interview with DJ Slab 1 of Q93 New Orleans, former Cash Money artist B.G. came across as being quite reflective as he spoke on his upcoming, 14-year prison sentence. The rapper even went on to speak directly to the youth as he warned them against making the mistakes he made in his life, mistakes he says he wish he could take back.
“Stay in school…Listen to your mama and your daddy. Don’t make the same mistakes that I did,” B.G. explained. “Cause it’s a lot of things I wish I could take back and wish I could do different, but I ain’t able to do that. I put myself in this situation. There’s a lot of kids that look up to me and a lot of fans that I let down, but I ain’t perfect. I make mistakes and it ain’t worth it at the end of the day.”
B.G.’s mellow tone continued in the interview as he accepted full responsibility for the crime that will soon put him in prison.
“I got 14 years. I gotta do 11 off of that…At the end of the day I possessed the firearm and I was a convicted felon,” said the rapper. “I shouldn’t have had a firearm. I had a firearm, I can’t take that back. I took my licks and I gotta do my bid. At the end of the day you gotta live with the decisions you make in life. I made my bed, I gotta lay in it.”
On Wednesday, July 18 the rapper was sentenced to 14 years in prison for gun possession and witness tampering charges that were brought about following a 2009 traffic stop.
