Beanie Sigel Faces Prison Time for Tax Evasion

East Coast rapper Beanie Sigel faces 3 years in the slammer after pleading guilty to tax evasion.

The former Roc-A-Fella rapper is but another hip-hop artist to run into trouble with Johnny Law in recent weeks, following the arrests of Big Boi and Big Sean.

In court, the lyricist admitted that he neglected to pay taxes from 2003-2005 and reportedly owes the government $350,000.

Sigel is no stranger to jail time, serving a year long stretch in 2004 for drug and weapons charges and again in 2008 for failing a drug test and violating his probation.

Sentencing takes place on November 18th.
