Former Cash Money rapper B.G. is facing up to 10 years in prison after being indicted on gun and conspiracy charges.

In a statement issued on Thursday (May 19) U.S. Attorney Jim Letten said that the New Orleans native — real name, Christopher Dorsey — is facing one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice and two counts of being a felon in possession of a fireman, following a November 2009 arrest.

B.G. and two associates were pulled over and arrested after a routine traffic stop in 2009, when police found three handguns, loaded magazines and extended clips in the rapper’s car. B.G. and one associate were charged with illegally carrying firearms, while the third passenger was charged with drug possession.

The 30-year-old rapper is now accused of trying to pass off ownership of the illegal firearms to another passenger in the vehicle. If he is found guilty, B.G. can find himself behind bars for up to a decade.

B.G. parted ways with Cash Money Records after having a dispute with CEO Bryan “Birdman” Williams, and has since launched his own label, Chopper City Records. He released his eleventh album ‘Too Hood 2 Be Hollywood’ in 2009, and the his twelfth, tentatively titled ‘It’s All On U, Vol. 3′ will likely be delayed by his current legal troubles.
