Philadelphia Rapper Beanie Sigel

First it was Lauryn Hill who plead guilty last month, now it is someone who we wouldn’t have expected. Dwight Grant, better known Beanie Sigel, will be spending two years in prison for tax evasion. Apparently, according to BET sources, Beanie Sigel owes more than $728,000 in taxes since 1999. He failed to file tax returns from the years of 1999-2005, except for a $10,000 tax payment that was made in 2001.

Beanie Sigel earned more than $3.2 million between 1999 and 2005. However, Beanie Sigel told the judge that members of his family took advantage of his funds while he served time in prison for federal drug and gun offenses in 2004 and 2005. Originally, Sigel was expected to be sentenced to three years in prison for the respective charge, but the court decided that two years is sufficient.

This isn’t Beanie Sigel’s first time dealing with the criminal justice system. According to Philly.com, court records clearly state “he was twice adjudged a juvenile delinquent, has three state convictions for drug distribution, possession and assault in addition to the prior federal conviction for drug possession and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. Sigel was acquitted in 2005 of state charges on attempted murder and related offenses.”

Beanie Sigel is releasing a new album next month, hoping to get his career back on track. Stay tuned for an update!
