Like Second line Sunday, New Orleans engages in “Free BG Friday” at the end of each week. It’s not just Friday, it’s #FREEBGFRIDAY. Speaking, of course, about New Orleans rapper and original Cash Money Hot Boy BG.
Because I know #FreeBGFriday is already on your mind, check out these classic photos of BG, taken by legendary New Orleans photographer Polo Silk.
Having been convicted back in 2012 on gun possession and witness tampering charges, BG is currently serving a 14 year sentence. Regardless, the love the community has for BG has never faded, and only continues to grow.
