True Story was originally the debut album by American hip hop duo B.G.'z, released on July 29, 1995, by Cash Money. Originally, The B.G.'z, formed in 1995, were a group consisting of Lil Doogie (B.G.), who was 14 years old, and Baby D (Lil Wayne), who was 12.[3] This album was re-released in 1999 as a B.G. album, when Cash Money Records got a distribution deal with Universal Records. It sold over 20,000 copies at the time of its release.

"True Story" and "Fuck Big Boy" are diss tracks towards Mystikal and Big Boy Records, another independent label from New Orleans, Louisiana.[4]
