Al Hassan Naqiyy (born Arlandis Hinton; January 23, 1975), better known by his stage name B.G. Knocc Out, is an American rapper from Compton, California. He and his brother Dresta were Crips gang members when they met Eazy-E and signed to his label Ruthless Records. They both appeared on Eazy-E's 1993 EP It's On (Dr. Dre) 187umKilla on the successful single "Real Muthaphuckkin G's". In 1995, B.G. Knocc Out and Dresta released the album Real Brothas on Def Jam. At the end of the year, they made three guest appearances on Eazy-E's posthumous album Str8 off tha Streetz of Muthaphukkin Compton. B.G. Knocc Out made a guest appearance on DJ Yella's 1996 album One Mo Nigga ta Go

B.G. Knocc Out was sentenced to ten to twelve years in prison for gang-related attempted murder in 1998. While in prison, he converted to Islam and changed his name before being released early in August 2006. In September 2007, he was incarcerated again for parole violation and was released two years later. In 2011, he released his debut solo album, Eazy-E's Protege. He had plans to release another album sometime in 2012, but it was canceled when he quit the music business after making Hajj to Mecca.
