While Bill Cosby gets used to living behind bars, his fellow prisoners have already given their new neighbor a nickname, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

“Prisoners are excited that Cosby is there,” a source close to the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections told Radar. “Even the toughest cellblocks showed respect for him.”

Now 81-year-old Cosby’s newest fans are showing the disgraced comedian some love the best way they know how: with a nickname.

“They’re calling him the ‘OG’ — lingo for ‘original gangster,’” the source said.

As Radar reported, not long after Judge Steven O'Neill sentenced Cosby to between three and 10 years in jail for drugging and raping Andrea Constand, he was whisked away to the State Correctional Institute Phoenix after a pit stop at the Montgomery County Jail.

"We are taking all of the necessary precautions to ensure Mr. Cosby's safety and general welfare in our institution," Corrections Secretary John Wetzel said. "The long-term goal is for him to be placed in the general population to receive the programming required during his incarceration."
