The much-loved New Orleans rapper, who just released a new single, was ordered back to prison for 90 days starting May 14 because he violated probation.

Mr. Ghetto Takes on NOLA Violence
When we interviewed him last year, Mr. Ghetto insisted to us that he had more than just a one-hit ode to Wally World up his sleeve (Well, it had many hits in YouTube terms). Turns out, he wasn't lying. Having recently been to jail and the hospital, Mr. Ghetto has had the city's out-of-control violence on his mind. In his new video, "Close My Eyes," the 7th Ward native ditches the panty-panty-panty-panty-hose, and gets reflective. Check out the video after the jump:
Mr. Ghetto Visits the ER for 'Heart Attack'

Hot Boy BG Indicted
NOLA rappers are physically incapable of staying out of the news this week. While Mr. Ghetto was hitting the nation, Cash Money millionaire B.G. was getting indicted by it. U.S. Attorney Jim Letten handed down a 3-count indictment on Baby Gangsta Thursday. The indictment stems from 2009 gun charges. B.G. was arrested in December of that year for possessing 3 guns in New Orleans East. Though it might be fitting that B.G. follows his old pal into the pen for the same types of charges, this won't be a brief, hype-grabbing sojourn at Riker's. B.G. faces 10 years for his crimes.
