Beanie Sigel Arrested Two Weeks Before Prison

Beanie Sigel

Two weeks before he was scheduled to go to prison, Beanie Sigel has been arrested on separate charges of drug and gun possession.

According to TMZ, the former Roc-A-Fella Records signee was pulled over during a traffic stop in Philadelphia on Wednesday morning while riding in a vehicle with drugs, cash, and a gun. Police claim to have found numerous prescription bottles, pills wrapped in plastic bags, and marijuana.

Sigel was allegedly carrying a bottle of codeine syrup along with $4,650 in cash. A gun was also found in the car. Both Sigel and the driver are convicted felons prohibited from possessing a firearm.

The 38-year-old rapper was previously sentenced to two years in prison for failing to file tax returns and owes more than $700,000 in back taxes.

He was scheduled to start serving his sentence in two weeks and had just released his new album This Time.

    What’s even sadder is that THIS is the only time Rap-Up is willing to cover REAL HIP-HOP artists like him…every other time you cover the pop-tarts, but when a real hip-hop artist releases music, you give him NO coverage, except when he’s arrested.

    P.S. All these rappers with gun and tax trouble…most of them happened since January 20, 2009. And something tells me you’ll all vote for four more years of this BS going on.
