In a recent interview on All Hip Hop Radio, Cash Money CEO Bryan “Baby” Williams revealed that he was pleading with Atlantic Records to release former Hot Boy B.G. from the label. XXLMag.com caught up with the former Hot Boy yesterday (November 10) to get an update on his label situation and find out his newfound relationship with Birdman.
The New Orleans rapper has confirmed with XXL that he has been consulting with Baby in terms of his career as of late. Unhappy with his Atlantic deal—B.G.’s upcoming disc, Too Hood 2 be Hollywood, has been pushed back four times—he turned to his ex-Cash Money boss.
According to B. Gizzle his label problems started back in 2007 when T.I. got arrested on gun charges, and his project has been in limbo ever since. “When T.I. got caught up in that situation at the [BET] Hip Hop Awards, they kinda froze up on me,” he admitted. “They didn’t know what to do with me. I got a lot of respect for T.I., T.I. my partner but he told them, B.G. is his own man, he can carry his own weight. I don’t have to hold his hand.”- XXL
