True Story was originally the debut album by American hip hop duo B.G.'z, released on July 29, 1995, by Cash Money and Universal Records. Originally, B.G.'z were a group consisting of Lil Doogie (B.G.), who was 14 years old, and Baby D (Lil Wayne), who was 12. This album was released in 1995, and re-released in 1999 as a B.G. album, when Cash Money Records got a distribution deal with Universal Records.

Due to his age, Wayne's mother didn't allow him to record such profane lyrics but he still did, and the name B.G. was given to Doogie. "True Story" and "Fuck Big Boy" are diss tracks towards Mystikal and Big Boy Records, another independent label from New Orleans.[3]
