Christopher Dorsey, better known as B. Gizzle, Baby Gangsta or simply BG, is a rapper and actor from the United States. He started his professional career with cash Money Records, as one part of the hip-hop duo B.G.’z. Since 1997 Christopher has worked together with the fellow rappers Turk and Juvenile. The collective called itself Hot Boys. In the early 2000s B.G. left cash Money records to start his own music label, entitled Chopper City Records. As for 2013, BG net worth is estimated at $8 million. However, it looks like the rapper is not gonna need these money for the while, as in 2012 Christopher was sentenced to spend 14 years in jail for witness tampering and gun possession.
BG was born in 1980, in Louisiana and raised in Uptown section. His professional career, which eventually boosted BG net worth to millions of dollars, began particularly early: by the time he was signed to Cash Money Records, Christopher was only 12. The boy developed a strong personal relationship with one of CMR owners, professionally known as Birdman. He introduced Christopher to his future band mate Lil Wayne.
Just to remind you, Lil (real name Dwayne Michael carter) is currently a world famous rapper, selling millions of albums in the United States. The audience has been more favorable for him, then it was for Christopher and as for today Wayne’s fortune exceeds BG net worth by tens of millions. According to some estimates, Lil holds capital and assets worth $135 million.
By the time Chris and Lil (together known as B.G.’s) released their debut album, they were respectively 14 and 12 years old. True Story, that was its name, featured only 8 tracks and did not catch the mainstream audience. However, it made their names known in the hip-hop scene of Louisiana. The following year Christopher released his first solo album, entitled Chopper City. It featured such guests as Big Tymers, Juvenile, Bun B, Mannie Fresh and Keisha. Chopper City in the Ghetto, BG’s first studio album, was released in 1999. Due to the success of track “Bling Bling” (ft. Cash Money Millionaires), the album sold over 140 thousand copies during the week after release and eventually garnered Platinum certification from the Recording Industries Association of America.
BG’s latest studio album Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood reached the stores in 2009 and wasn’t even remotely as popular as his early works. Despite the relative popularity of such singles as “For a Minute” and “My Hood” (ft. Mannie Fresh), during nearly three years in the market it has only managed to sell 100 thousand copies. Needless to say, Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood did not make a significant contribution to BG net worth.
