Rapper BG Indicted on Federal Charges

“ATF be showing they ass around my block, feds get all the respect because they’ll close up the shop.” – BG’s lyrics from The Hot Boys’ song, ‘Tuesday & Thursday’ 

Rapper “BG” a/k/a “B Gizzle” a/k/a Louisiana native Christopher Dorsey is well known for “keeping it real” and “street”. Today, the “Baby Gangsta” was indicted by a federal grand jury on firearms and obstruction charges.

The 30-year old St. Rose, Louisiana resident has been charged in a 3-count indictment for felon in possession of  a firearm, conspiracy to obstruct justice and

BG faces up to 10 years in prison, if convicted.  BG was arrested with two other men in November 2009 in New Orleans East for allegedly possessing 3 weapons, loaded magazines and two extended clips, while driving in eastern New Orleans. New Orleans police said two of the three guns had been reported stolen and the car itself had been stolen from an Alamo rental car parking lot.

The case was later moved from Louisiana state court to federal court, resulting in federal indictments last year of Dorsey’s associates: Demounde Pollard, 19, and Jerod Fedison, 29. Both recently pleaded guilty, paving the way for the charges against BG.

Federal prosecutors allege that BG conspired to get Pollard, who was inside the vehicle at the time of the arrest, to claim ownership of the guns.

ATF agents monitored Fedison’s phone calls from theOrleans Parish Prison. At one point, Fedison called his girlfriend and told her Pollard, who had no criminal record, would need to admit to having the guns, according to court documents filed with the earlier plea deals. Fedison also expressed surprise that the police found the guns in the vehicle’s “stash spot.”

In another jailhouse phone call, Fedison and BG discussed the importance of having Pollard claim ownership of the guns. Fedison told BG to put up money for Pollard’s bond and then make him sell drugs to pay it off, according to court filings.

Pollard eventually signed an affidavit that he, rathern BG, had the guns. As part of his plea agreement, Pollard confessed that statement was false. He is scheduled to be sentenced in August.

Several years ago, BG granted an interview to the Times-Picayune, in which he was quoted as saying, “The streets need me. If it wasn’t for the streets, I wouldn’t be who I am today. Every state and every city all over the United States, they got people that can relate to the stories, and the things I’ve seen and the things that I’ve been through,” he said.
