6. C-Murder

In a case of life imitating art, Master P's little brother found himself in a precarious position, having to change his rap moniker from C-Murder to C-Miller in 2003. At the time, he was facing second-degree murder charges after a shoot-up at a New Orleans club resulted in the death of a 16-year-old fan. He was found guilty in 2009 and sentenced to life in prison.

5. B. G.

New Orlean's rapper B.G. makes the list for pleading guilty to felony weapons charges and tampering with a witness. In 2009, he was pulled over for a traffic violation. And knowing he was gonna get caught all strapped up, he just convinced his 17-year-old passenger to say the weapons were his. It was easy to believe, because the kid had already been arrested three times that year. But too bad for B.G., it didn't stick. This makes for three out of four Hot Boys with felony convictions. Better step your game up, Juvenile.
