Rapper Beanie Sigel was arrested early this morning in Philly for drugs and gun possession. Just 2 weeks before he’s supposed to turn himself in to prison for a separate crime.
Beans was sentenced to two years in prison for failing to file tax returns for the years 2003, 2004, and 2005 and owing more than $700k in back taxes.
According to police, the rapper was busted this morning during a traffic stop, in a car filled with drugs, cash, and a gun. Police claim the driver was carrying numerous prescription bottles, several pills wrapped in plastic bags in a cigarette pack, and marijuana.
Sigel was allegedlly carrying a bottle of codeine syrup with the label scratched off and $4,650 in cash. Police say they also found a gun in the center console.
Beanie and the driver are convicted felons prohibited from possessing a firearm. The two were arrested and charged with gun and drug violations.
The CEO of Beanie’s record label Ruffhouse Records says, “Obviously we are very disappointed … Beanie has been struggling with some personal issues, and we continue to support him now and throughout his impending incarceration.”
