HipHollywood recently reported that rapper Beanie Sigel was sentenced to six to 23 months in jail after pleading guilty to narcotics possession. To anyone else, this would be an unfortunate event, but a rep for Sigel tells HipHollywood exclusively that it’s actually “good news”.
“Although most other news sources ran this story on Sigel’s birthday as if it were bad news, it is in fact good news,” Sigel’s rep explains. ”Beanie beat the gun case and was sentenced to six to 23 months. This sentence will run concurrent with his federal sentence. We expect an early release. This is actually good news.”
Beanie was already sentenced to two years in prison July of 2012 for federal tax evasion, after failing to file federal income tax returns from 2009 – 2012.
When asked how Beanie is holding up while being locked away since last August, the rep replied, ”Beans could be home before his birthday next year, he’s in good health, and he will finally be clear to focus on his career.”
According to his team, once released, Beanie’s career focus will be to finish a much anticipated album collaboration with Scarface, Mac and Brad.
