Ruffhouse Records Releases Statement Addressing Beanie Sigel's Arrest

UPDATE: Beanie Sigel's label stands by their flagship artist was arrested just two weeks before he was due behind bars for an unrelated conviction.

Beanie Sigel was arrested earlier this morning following a traffic stop on Interstate 95 in Delaware County in Pennsylvania.

According to ABC Local, the former Roc-A-Fella rapper was stopped around 3:15 a.m. after State Troopers noticed a tan Ford Fusion swerving out of its lane and tailgating another car. The Troopers pulled the car over and ordered the driver, Gerald Andrews, out of the vehicle. A check for weapons turned up several prescription bottles and a small amount of marijuana.

Meanwhile, Sigel was sitting in the passenger seat. Troopers performed a search on him and found $4,650 in cash, a bottle of codeine syrup with a scratched off label and several prescription pills wrapped in plastic bags located in a cigarette pack.

During the search, Troopers also found a firearm in the center console. Both Sigel and Andrews are convicted felons and are not permitted to carry any guns.

Both men were detained and brought to Pennsylvania State Police barracks in Media to be processed and arraigned.

Sigel is scheduled to serve two years in prison for failing to pay more than $728,000 in federal income taxes since 1999. He will report to jail on September 12th.

UPDATE: Ruffhouse Records, which released Beanie Sigel's This Time yesterday, has issued a statement regarding his arrest earlier today. "Obviously, we’re very disappointed,” said Chris Schwartz, CEO of Ruffhouse Records. “However, Beanie has done nothing but display the utmost professionalism in all the initiatives related to the promotion of his new release. Beanie obviously has been struggling with some personal issues, and we continue to support him now and throughout his impending incarceration.”

    Like someone just said this is why Jay don't fuck with this dude he's just reckless not smart at all. You know your situation and yet u gonna b riding dirty yea that's brilliant. How you suppose to help someone that seem like he don't give a fuck about life he's gonna b in and out of jail for the rest of his life cus he never learn. Don't get me wrong beans is my dude i just want some good music from him and yet he do this dumb shit. I'm just tired of this shit to b honest. I thought he was finally gonna get it together make some good music and keep it moving but nah he wanna b in the streets for the rest of his life. Funny thing is niggas think that shit is cool that shit ain't cool you can't do the same shit forever and if u do b smart about it. Oh well gonna listen to this "This Time" album since it's prolly gonna b his last album knowing him when he get out he gonna go right back in for doing something dumb.

    And now y'all see why Jay don't fool with this cat,in my Joe Budden voice YOU CAN BE ANYTHING IN THIS WORLD THAT YOU WANT TO BE,BUT YOU'LL NEVER BE MY DOWNFALL

  • Big Dan

    I read that last interview a week or so ago where dude was talking like he'd figured some things out and I posted that I was skeptical. Ghetto mofos just always know how to talk slick. You've got some problems and you riding like that. And even if that gun wasn't yours, why you even close to it? Jeez!! Dumb ass. Hopefully, your boy can claim the gun and the other charges you can get to serve out your time while doing the tax time. beans you really useless. You've probably blown through all your bread and your career is over. You won't sell enough to see royalties, especially since your new label is probably footing some legal beans. You dumb dude. Why can't you stay in your freaking crib and get as high as you want if you can't stay away from the nonsense?

  • OUCH!

      I understand where you're coming from but watch that, you're not perfect. Your job, girl, or judge may not want to hear what you have to say.

      I agree Bigdummy. youre right. That goes for a lot of these idiots making music. their words are just rhetoric bullshit

    • Anonymous

      If something an entertainer tells you is enough to get you into trouble, your an idiot and have bigger problems then music. Even if your a kid, I grew up in the Gangsta rap era and the only arrests I ever had was a speeding ticket, I guess we can blame that one on "The Fast & the Furious" People who blame the entertainment business for the choices they make in life should all commit ritualistic group suicide ASAP

    WE ALL NEED HIM, but the kid Beans NEEDS to give his heart TO GOD and find peace and clarity, I feel HELLA bad for homie, dude had SO MUCH potential that has just seemingly fell to pieces. Hope Beans can find the Man Upstairs. Like that song on his latest album "Prayer" homie needs to have that on play right now.....

  • Pirate7X

    No sympathy at all fam? It's obvious Beans is an addict with monumental challenges but some of y'all haters still throw dirt. Shouts to Sco, Ghost & Mu for being adults. It's true cats get loaded before a long bid (no excuse) and Beans needs to turn his life around. Stay strong Sigel and net thugs step off.

  • Stop racial profiling!

    i bet it was a racial profiling i know that.

    • Big Dan

      ..and we really need to think about our use of the term racial profiling. When we let them catch us like that, can we complain? If every time they stopped us, they found nothing, most of them would get tired of it. We, well Beans needs to stop!

    • negro please

      Racially profiling a Ford Fusion c'mon son. Swerving sure had to do something with it first. Plus if you gonna drive fucked up don't have shit like that on you, and vice versa.

    Beanie Sigel got the ugliest nose I've ever seen, this pic of him makes him look like an ugly homeless fat ass Oscar the grouch who just got kicked out of his Garbage can because he couldn't afford to pay for rent.

  • The Critic

    Beanie Sigel just needs to fucking retire already. His whole career has been Garbage. I've never seen him on TV since the fallout he had with Jay-z. His raps are starting to get lazy & he's not legendary material any more like he used to be.

    Why in the hell were they checking for weapons?

      Its a quick search of the vehicle for weapons I believe its called a terry search, they have the right to do that when a person is looking suspicious...

    Dang,you can't even start a "Free Beans" campaing with that dumb shit unless you're giving away "Free Beans".

  • Sco*

    niggas abuse drugs when they have to turn themselves in for a bid, not saying its "cool" or morally responsible, but it happens more than you think....im not making excuses in any way, but that is the reality of the situation....the judge tells you, you have to sit down for two years beginning on a certain date, and you get hella loaded up until that date....Niggas live like that forreal, just trying to numb the pain of the sentence.....Not promoting or even defending it, just providing the science behind his reasoning...#beenthere

  • J-Yo

    these ppl r dumb, you would think they would know the law a little better, siegel should go talk to a lawyer....They did a terry search n found drugs, giving them the right to do a thorough search of the vehicle. Had they had everything i the glove compartment, locked, they would have been STR8888 bcuz a kerry search only allos a brief search of the vehicle for everything thats in plain sight....#justsayin

    • The Fresh Fest

      You don't know what dude is living, he got caught with some dope; that's it,-does that make him gangsta? Maybe it makes him gangsta that he failed to pay taxes, or failed to pay child support, or went to the clink a few times or can't keep his business right or is a habitual failure who can't get right. Is he gangsta for that? You're dumber than I 1st thought.

    • the ghost what up

      co-sign @Mu fresh fest try reading a comment before you start talking shit and he says im the ignorant one?

    • Mu

      @The Fresh Fest - Way to spin someone's words just to be hater. He was just saying that Beans isn't a fraud and he's really been about that street life. He wasn't condoning it or praising it. It just is what it is...

    • The Fresh Fest

      Are you serious? Does it make you a better person if you live out your music in real time? Is that what you enjoy? Does that make you better about YOUR life? Dayum. Ignorance always wins.

      Cut that shit out. If Beans was doing what he was supposed to back in the day he would be ok. Those years he didn't pay taxes was when his ass was in jail. HE should have had accountants. He seemed to have good lawyers. Why not have both? He has done his self in. His ignorance and bs fucked him up. Jay tried to give him another shot in 2007 and he fucked that up from acting stupid and hood.

    Hey, guys, just a heads up: You know this is pretty much the worst kind of news gathering, right? You guys rip the whole story and provide a small link once, giving readers no reason to check the real reporting done by the person who worked hard for this story. Love the audio section of the site. Hate the way you guys rip off other media.

    Listen man...I know the police are cocksuckers and they specifically target niggas to try to ruin their life. But with that being known, you should at least TRY to stay out of the way of the police. If you're a convicted felon, think twice about riding dirty like that. If you think twice about it, and you still think it's a good idea, then you get what you get. I feel bad for anyone who's going to jail, because I know how bad it is in jail. But at some point you got smarten up and play the game, for your kids sake and for your own sake.
