Not every rapper is living the struggle life when it comes to his or her (hello, Ms. Hill) taxes. In February, Snoop Lion got hit with a tax lien for over half a millions bucks, but he has already paid up Uncle Sam’s invoice. 

TMZ reports:

Snoop Dogg could have bought (and munched on) 153,000 Big Macs … 289,000 Chalupas … or 500,000 bags of Cheetos … but instead he chose to pay off his tax bill, all $546,000 of it!!!

TMZ broke the story … the IRS slapped Snoop (now Lion) — real name Calvin Broadus — with a massive tax lien​ back in February, claiming he still owed back taxes for the years 2009 and 2011.

Not one to leave Uncle Sam hanging … Snoop recently paid his debt in full — $546,270.29 to be exact — and the lien was released late last month.

Now he can get back to doing what he does best.

See; pay up, no jail time. It’s as simple as that.

Snoop Lion’s new album, Reincarnated, is in stores now.
