B.G. reflects on time in prison on new single, "Really Understand"

B.G. shows his vulnerable side on his latest song, "Really Understand."

On the track, which dropped via YouTube on Friday, the former Hot Boys rapper reflects on his time in prison, rapping about the personal struggles he faced while behind bars.

The 43-year-old was released from prison in September after serving 12 years for firearm possession and conspiracy to obstruct justice.

"If you done been to jail before, you really understand / How hard that time be when no one there to hold your hand / You hear from the streets that your bitch got a new man / Can’t wait to get released so you can go ’round up that bag," he raps on the song's chorus.

Elsewhere on the track, the father-of-three raps about missing his children.

"I'm laying in my cell looking at pictures of my kids / Tryna' think how I'ma say I'ma miss Christmas again," he spits.

Fans were quick to praise B.G. for being open with his emotions on the track.

"Music that has meaning, this song will touch many hearts," one fan commented on YouTube.

Another wrote: "It's such a good sound to the ears when you hear a real G from the streets speak facts and be real. B.G. it's a blessing to have you around, welcome home homie."

In December, B.G. dropped his first project since leaving prison – a joint mixtape with Gucci Mane titled "Choppers & Bricks."

The 13-track tape features guest appearances from Lil Jairmy and C-Murder, as well as production from DJ Paul, D.A. Got That Dope, and Mike WiLL Made-It, who produced the lead single "Cold."

In an interview with Rap Radar shortly after the mixtape's release, B.G. spoke of his joy at being able to make music again.

“It feel good, man. It’s nothing short of a blessing,” he said. “To be gone as long as I was gone, to come back out here and people still be receptive to the music, to even still want to hear me. It let me know that the music I contributed passed the test of time."
