Former Hot Boys' member B.G. has broken his silence on his recent arrest in New Orleans on gun charges and said he had no knowledge that three weapons were in the vehicle he was riding in.
According to B.G., a bail was posted shortly after being arrested on November 3rd.
"The bond, [the court] wanted to set it at a 100,000 [dollars] because of my record," B.G. explained in an interview. "But the bond end up being like 50,000...[And] so I got my other little partna [Demounde] out of jail, and he gonna sign the affidavit saying that none of [us] had no knowledge that the guns was in the car so my man [Jerod's] parole officer can come sign him out..."As of right now...I don't know how the guns got in the vehicle. For all I know the police coulda put 'em in the vehicle. But when I got in the vehicle, the guns wasn't in there." (Hip Hop DX)
He was reportedly randomly stopped during a routine traffic stop by police last week.
