Rappers and tax issues go together like peanut butter and jelly, and Snoop Dogg is the latest in the long line of artists to lien with it and rock with it.
According to TMZ, the Internal Revenue Service is coming for Snoop Lion after claiming that the rapper owes $546,270.29 in unpaid tax bills. Documents that were retrieved by the gossip site claim that Reincarnated rapper turned rasta owes for two separate years, 2009 ($101,952.44) and 2011 ($444,317.85).
This isn’t the first time that the “Drop It Like It’s Hot” artist has had a brush up with the IRS. In 2008, The Doggfather reportedly owed over $476,000 in back taxes. The issue was resolved quickly once the lien was brought to his attention. Nas, Lauryn Hill, Jermaine Dupri and Katt Williams are just a few of the celebrities who have recently had run-ins with Uncle Sam.
Snoop is currently promoting his new movie and album called Reincarnated which chronicles the gangster rapper’s transformation into embracing the Rastafarian faith. In an effort to reclaim his happiness and inspiration, Snoop & Co traveled to Jamaica where they stayed for one month creating his album.
Reincarnated will be in theaters everywhere on March 15th.
