January 11th, 2006 | By Administrator

B.G. is set to release his new single ?Move Around? and in the coming weeks, the rapper will shoot a video for the new single, taken from his upcoming release, The Heart of Tha Streetz: Vol. 2 (I Am What I Am) in the coming weeks.

Produced by Mannie Fresh, ?Move Around? marks the first time B.G. and Mannie Fresh have collaborated since both left Cash Money Records.

“Mannie Fresh created a certain sound for each Cash Money artist and even though I’ve worked with damn near everybody from Swizz Beats to DJ Smurf, Fresh is Fresh,” B.G. said. “We kept in contact over the years and after he left the label, it was on and popping.?

The video was scheduled to be filmed entirely in New Orleans, but B.G. was denied a permit by the city because the area where he wanted to shoot was in the most devastated parts of New Orleans.

The video, directed by Gil Green, will be shot in parts of New Orleans and Atlanta over a two-day period.

B.G., now living in Detroit, confesses that he’s still affected by the disaster that happened in his hometown.

“It can’t get no realer than what happened to New Orleans,? B.G. continued. ?I came to Detroit about three years ago and it’s been like my second home ever since, but everyday I wake up, I’m wishing I can go down to the projects and see my people.?

In related news, B.G. is schedule to return to court on Feb. 6th to answer to charges of possession of a firearm and drug possession.

The former Cash Money Records artist was arrested by police on last month (Dec. 18) in Detroit, after police stopped his car and found a concealed weapon in his vehicle.

The Heart of Tha Streetz: Vol. 2 (I Am What I Am) will be released March 21, 2006 on Chopper City Records.
