(BlackMediaScoop) Beanie Sigel was sentenced to two years in prison for tax evasion. The rapper, whose real name is Dwight Grant, failed to file tax returns from 1999 to 2005, save for one $10,000 tax payment in 2001.
While earning $2.2 million in taxable income over those six years, Sigel owed the IRS $728,536. Sigel pleaded guilty to the charges in August, which stemmed only from 2003 to 2005 due to the statute of limitations.
