Beanie Sigel has a lot of things to take care of before he heads to prison to serve a two-year sentence, for skipping out on his tax bill. In promotion of his forthcoming pre-prison album, The Time, the 38-year-old will embark on an accompanying tour, reports All HipHop.
Starting in mid-August, Beans will hit the likes of New York City, before heading to the Left Coast with stops at the Key Club in West Hollywood, Calif., and The New Parish, in Oakland. In addition to the shows, he will also make spot appearances on programs like 106 & Park, and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, to publicize his new single “The Reunion.”
Back in March, the Philly native signed a distribution deal with EMI which was put in place by his current label home, Ruffhouse Records. “If you've been through what I've been through in my career, you wouldn't trust no one. You'll fourth guess everything,” he explained. “What made me do the deal with Chris Schwartz was actually to get the deal together for State Property.”
The “pre-prison” tour (which is hopefully a working title) begins Aug. 16 at New York City's SOB's.
