Rapper B.G. ... aka Baby Gangsta ... aka one of the guys from Lil' Wayne's old group Hot Boys -- has been sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for gun possession and witness tampering.

The 31-year-old -- real name Christopher Dorsey -- 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.

According to Nola.com, officials say B.G. later obstructed justice by pushing one of his associates to falsely claim ownership of the firearm.

B.G. already had 3 felony drug convictions on his record.

No word on when the rapper will begin his sentence.

Three drug convictions and caught twice in possession of a firearm. In another viewpoint... 3 victimless crimes plus 2 'Constitutional' carries. Now he lives off the taxpayers for the next 14 years.

Shame and a waste of talent. This dude is a legend in the New Orleans rap scene and carried Cash Money Records way before Lil' Wayne blew up…

The definition of stupidity here. You make it through the slim doorway into the entertainment industry. You have the opportunity if you just keep your nose 1/2 way clean to have a lot of freedoms, money in the bank, perform your art, have a voice in media through show business.....and you land yourself in a cell behind bars with total restriction for 14 years. really?

Y'all talk so much **** about rappers & people you don't even know. I'm from new Orleans .. yes I'm White, but ive met lil wayne & his old group they armrests so nice & welcoming , & my brother was in the bloods .. if you understand they have to have guns for their protection if their bodyguards fail. So back tf off of him & realize what your saying.
