Not Good. Rapper Beanie Sigel has been sentenced to spend two years in the slammer for tax evasion — he owes $700,000 in back taxes and the IRS isn’t playing.
The rapper, known to have worked with some of the biggest names in the rap game, including Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z, had previously pled guilty to not filing federal tax returns for the years 2003, 2004 and 2005.
Today Beanie told a U.S District Court in Philadelphia judge that he accepts “total responsibility” but griped about family members who allegedly sucked him dry while he was serving time for drug and gun crimes back in 2004 and 2005.
“I haven’t been able to get my career back on track since” … Sigel told the court.
Beanie must surrender to the authorities by September 12 to begin his sentence.
