As a part of his supervised release, Hot Boys vet B.G. must turn in all of his song lyrics to his probation officer before he records them as songs in the studio, according to reports.

B.G. was released from prison last year after serving twelve years in federal prison for firearms possession and obstruction of justice convictions in 2012. Earlier this year, the government claimed that he glorified a life a crime in the songs that he dropped after getting out of prison. He was also accused of associating with known felons after dropping songs with Gucci Mane and Boosie Badazz.

In a new filing obtained by HipHopDX on Tuesday (July 2), the court ruled he did not violate his probation with any of the aforementioned actions, but he now must get written approval from his probation officer before working with convicted felons. United States District Judge Susie Morgan called the government’s attempt to censor B.G.’s lyrics “unconstitutional”, but she did grant the government the right to look at his lyrics in advance. The judge said that if the state had any objections, prosecutors could attempt legal action.

“To address the legitimate concerns expressed by the Government, the Court will impose a special condition that the Defendant provide the United States Probation Office with a copy of the lyrics of any song he writes, in advance of his production or promotion of such song, and that those lyrics be shared with the Government,” the court document reads. “At that time, the Government may, if it deems necessary and appropriate, file another motion for leave to file a rule to show cause why the Defendant’s conditions of supervised release should not be modified because the Defendant’s conduct is inconsistent with the goals of rehabilitation.”

“I ran into a hiccup with my little situation,” he said on IG Live, about his recent probation issues. “I’ma get past it. I need y’all to know that I definitely didn’t jump out there and do nothing that I ain’t have permission to do. It was just a lapse in communication.”
