It’s time to add Young Dro to the list of rappers facing a pesky tax struggle. Months after the “Shoulder Lean” rapper’s Maserati was repossessed, comes word that he owes the state of Georgia a serious chunk of change.

According to TMZ, Dro, born D’Juan Hart, owes the  state more than $45,000, for failing to pay his taxes back in 2007. In total, Dro is accused of not paying the state of Georgia $45,139.99.  As a result, the Georgia Dept. of Revenue filed documents against him, to officially take the steps to recoup the funds.

Always a professional Dro is focussed on his music, despite the news about his finances. He took to Twitter  early Monday (Oct. 15) morning, to announce plans to drop new tracks depending on how much his followers increase. “I will be leaking new music every 1,000 followers that I receive RT#droback.”

Dro previously released the mixtape, Ralph Lauren Reefa, which came out in September.

Rather than solely worrying about his online presence, the Georgia native may want to keep an eye on his money, and make a call to his accountant. Aside from the tax bill, he owes the leasing company that repoed his car, $61,220.37, raising his debt total to more than $100,000.
