bg not down with Grand Hustle Records.
With the release of Too Hood 2 Be Holloywood at the top of December, there was a lot of change occurring in the life of New Orleans rapper B.G. Not only was he finally able to release his eleventh studio album, he was also able to cut ties with those that were holding him back.
According to the rapper, not only did December 8 mark the drop of his album, it also marked the day that he would receive his freedom papers and should now be a free agent to continue his rap career with whatever label he chooses.
“I’m gonna be a free agent. I’m gonna sit down with the people that closest to me like my manager and lawyers and see what’s the best route to do.”
B.G. took some time out to provide some clarity to his situation with T.I.’s involvement with his latest album and what led to the demise of his career on Grand Hustle Records.
“No, all that’s over with. He was the executive producer of the project with me when it was on Atlantic. After the situation with him and the Hip Hop Awards, they kind of froze up on me, kept pushing the album back. This was pre-recession. Once I felt like they were playing with me, I stopped calling, got back doing what I was doing, creating another opportunity.”
With the talk of a Hot Boys reunion and album, some would speculate that the rapper might find a nesting ground at his own home and align himself with Baby and Cash Money once again.
“If the numbers right, if it makes sense.”
Whatever road the rapper chooses to walk down and whoever decides to do business, B.G.’s track records shows a man that will truly be an asset to whatever team will allow him to play.
