Beanie Sigel Admits To Tax Evasion, Faces Jail Time

The Broad Street Bully cops to failing to file his taxes, and now possibly faces jail time as a result.

It looks like the Broad Street Bully Beanie Sigel may be heading back to prison sometime soon. Like Ja Rule before him, Beans recently admitted guilt to failing to file his taxes between the years 2003 and 2005.

According to a recent report from ABC News, the State Property and former Roc-a-Fella rapper admitted to not filing his taxes during the two year period. Although his lawyer contests the amount of money owed, the prosecution says that Beans owes $350,000 out of a reportedly $1 million income that went undeclared.

The punishment Beanie Sigel faces with this latest legal mishap could be quite severe. If convicted at his November 18 hearing, he could face up to three years in prison.

This isn't the first time that Beans has had trouble with the law. In 2004, Beans was sentenced to prison for possession of a gun and drugs. He was also sent back to prison in 2008 for violating his parole terms three times, and also currently faces a lawsuit stemming from a shooting incident outside Philadelphia's Power 99.

    if the govt is trillions of dollars in debt they're not paying, why do the citizens have too? makes no sense to me.

    Note to all rappers: Quit frontin when you really don't got it. Quit living beyond ya means to keep up with the Joneses. Hire accountants/lawyers off of their integrity & professionalism not only their reputation. Watch & inquire about every dollar made/spent, make sure all money is accounted for. Understand that your brand is a business not only a hustle. Donate 2 charity & invest in all these hoods ya'll claim 2 rep. Strap up or prepare 2 pay child support...

  • lol @ these comments

    lil kids need OGs in their lives. CHILD SUPPORT IS STATE, NOT FED ISSUES. THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH 'FACES' ISSUE. YOU CANNOT COMPARE BEANS & 'FACE. 2 DIFFERENT SCENARIOS. AND JUST LIKE TAXES, MORTGAGES, AND STUDENT LOANS, THEY NEED TO REDO THE CHILD SUPPORT LAWS. AND I'MA WATCH AND SEE WHO ACTS HOLIER THAN THOU TALKING THAT "THEY NEED TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR CHILDREN" WHEN THERE'S PROOF THE MONEY GOES TO THE STATE 1ST, THEN THE KIDS. AND THE REST WILL JOCK JAY Z' BANK ACCOUNT. MOST OF Y'ALL ARE YOUNG KIDS REPEATING WHAT SOMEONE ELSE SAID ANYWAY. I BET ALOTTA Y'ALL GET CHILD SUPPORT AND ACT LIKE YOU GRIND ON THE BLOCK. HE WHO HAS NOT SINNED CAST THE FIRST STONE.

      lol at you I thought that lil kids need fathers and mothers who try to act like role models! Learn the kids to make progress and leave this street Bull Shit behind REAL TALK!!!

    Those bitches got scarface in jail on back child support. They can't get current support if he in jail, dumb bitches, having a black man locked up. Them bitches want that money for them so they can have what they want not , the kids, child support for some bitches is come up money. It don't take 5 or 2 thousand a month to take care of a kid. That bitch keels is trifling, the way she did nas is wrong, ladies if you have a son, do you want a bitch to do him like that. Kelis has a son and to not have compassion on nas is disgusting, she wouldn't want that for him.

      What the fuck am I waking up from? You think you've suddenly became aware of some fact that no one else has? GTFOHWTBS!!! Wake up. Pffft. And how the hell are we supposed to help that man? You said it yourself he held a multi-million dollar a year job. I'm sure that afforded him some type of legal advice and representation for his woes. Just tell me...what the hell are we gonna do that his lawyer(s) haven't done already? That's right, you're gonna do nothing. You funny guy.

    • lol @ these comments

      HEY BIG DAN, CONDOMS ARE FLAWED. AND HOW DO YOU KNOW 'FACES PROBLEMS ARE BECAUSE OF CHILD SUPPORT? CHILD SUPPORT IS NOT A FEDERAL VIOLATION. HE IS BEING HELD IN A FED PEN. YOU THINK THAT SCARFACE, A MUSIC INDUSTRY CELEBRITY, WHICH MAKES YOU A PUBLIC FIGURE, AND WAS THE PRESIDENT OF DEF JAM SOUTH, A MULTI MILLION DOLLAR JOB, COULDN'T BE FOUND FOR CHILD SUPPORT? HIS CHECKS COULD HAVE BEEN GARNISHED EASILY! IF YOU BELIEVE 'FACE WAS PLAYING AROUND, DRANO SHAKE YO'SELF. IF ANYTHING, 'FACE NEEDS OUR HELP TO GET OUT! HE WAS EASY TO FIND, BABIES IN DIFFERENT STATES FROM A CELEBRITY? WHO'S THE LAST CELEBRITY TO BE LOCKED IN A FED CELL FOR ALMOST A YEAR FOR THE SAME THING? Y'ALL NEED TO WAKE THE FUCC UP

      Day care is over 400 a month to begin with, but I won't get into all that. What I will say is wrap it the %&#& up and you won't get into these problems. You don't use protection, but you complain about the consequence. And with regards to Scarface, shouldn't dude be a multimillionaire by now?! I don't care how screwed up (there's a pun there somewhere - Texas rap music) his deals were, at this point, he should have big money in the bank. Why can't he pay child support. Rappers need to reassess their idea of what real is. Scarface has all this "real" talk on his songs, but after twenty plus years in the game, he is in jail over a few gees. Common b, that's foul.

    • Shawn

      Scarface is legally being extorted, with child support, it don't don't takes thousands of dollars to care of no kids, these trifling bitches want that money so they can up. Brothers strap up, these bitches will file on you in a heart beat. Rappers are being targeted by I.r.s., they have a whole unit to investigate rap artist. You need tax attorneys and accountings to keep you shit straight.

    • Sole

      Man, and plus rappers are being targeted. Specifically with the tax evasion...It's like their a hot commodity in being caught.
