According to TMZ, the Cash Money rapper from Lil’ Wayne’s old group Hot Boys appeared in federal court in New Orleans today after previously pleading guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm during a 2009 traffic stop in eastern New Orleans.

The 31-year-old, born Christopher Dorsey, later obstructed justice by pushing one of his associates to falsely claim ownership of the firearm, according to Nola.com.

B.G. already had three felony drug convictions on his record.
