B.G., former Cash Money Records artist and founding member of the New Orleans rap group the Hot Boys was released from federal prison this week after serving 12 years. B.G. formed the group alongside fellow rappers Turk, Lil Wayne, and Juvenile.

According to Billboard, a Cash Money representative said the New Orleans rapper served 12 years for gun possession and witness tampering. Billboard also explained the details of the Hot Boys rapper's legal situation, "In 2009, B.G. was arrested during a traffic stop where cops discovered three guns inside his vehicle, with two of them stolen. Two years later, he entered a guilty plea deal for two counts of firearm possession and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice. He received a 14-year federal prison sentence."

On Tuesday, Cash Money Records founder, Birdman, went live on Instagram, showing fans that B.G. is home from prison as the two embraced one another at an outdoor location. Before his release, B.G.'s Instagram page posted about his upcoming release and birthday: "After 12 winters and 13 summers, I see the end zone. It's my last #Birthday being buried alive. This year I'm celebrating the whole Virgo cycle, matter of fact, from this year forward I'm living and celebrating like everyday is #MyBIRTHDAY."

Cash Money has not provided details regarding whether the Hot Boys star will attempt to resume his rap career as a solo artist or with his former group. Hot Boys created a bit of industry hype with their successful album Guerrilla Warfare.
