B.G. Interview w/ The Vibe Source
I recently connected with B.G. to talk about whats been going on with him, his upcoming album Too Hood 2 Be Hoollywood, The Chopper City Boyz, VL Mike, Lil’ Wayne album sales, how he feel about the rumors about Rick Ross being a C.O. and much more. As you all know B.G. was once a Cash Money signee, but left the label back in 2001. Since his departure B.G. has been putting out an excessive amount of mixtapes, some with just him and a few with The Chopper City Boyz, he started his own record label, and connected with T.I. to boost his status back up. At the age of only 27 there is no doubt that B.G. is already a veteran in the game.
The interview after the jump.
Whats good with you B.G.?
Whats good with ya, baby? Nothin’ much just out here.
Naw, I just left New York the other day though, im in Houston right now.
That’s coming out later this year (it was later conformed that Too Hood To Be Hollywood wont be out until early ‘09), then we got The Chopper City Boyz: Live From The Concrete Jungle album coming out, and you know Im on that so I been working.
Its gone be 15. It was hard picking the songs and everything because I been recording everywhere I go then you know I got a studio in Houston. I got so many songs done that my hard drive is crowded with ’em.
Yea, after Katrina everybody came to Houston.
I got Young Jeezy, and T.I. on there, C-Murda, Maino, & The Hot Boyz. You know T.I. executive produced it.
Oh, Most definitely, the Hot Boyz are reuniting. We all grown now & know what we want, plus the fans been wanting that so its due time.
I got Mannie Fresh, Cool & Dre, Scott Storch, I was in the studio with Swizz Beatz, a lot of people.
Aint no pressure at all, Lil’ Wayne like my little brother, and I congratulate him on doin his thang. But naw aint no pressure on me.
Me, Juvie, and Wayne gone shot the video for “Ya Heard Me”, that’s gone be on Access Granted, MTV, and the 80’s babies mixtape, you know Im a 80’s baby im only 27. A mixtape with DJ Smalls and more mixtapes.
B.G., you been out for about 13 years, this is your 11th solo CD, whats to be expected? A lot of growth in this CD, my love for the game and the story and keeping it real.
Yea, Im Blessed.
Yea, I struggled with an heroin addiction but I was able to pull myself up out of that. In different places people be on weed or wateva other type of drugs but back in the 90’s in New Orleans heroin was that drug that everybody was on. Plus I was on it cuz it was like Viagra, had my dick hard for hours and shitt while I was fuckin with my bitches.
Its crazy cuz I fuck with Trick & Ross, you know me & Rick Ross kick it, but man to see him deny it, lie with a straight face make you see what these nigga’ about. Then he claim he roll with Boobie Boys and to come find out he was callin’ roll call.
Hakizzle a solo act now, he doin his thing. My brother laid back, he all good.
R.I.P to VL Mike, to his family n shit, we grew up together ya know. Even though he went against the grind I would never wish anything like that on nobody.
