Beanie Sigel is a free man. Per the good folks at Hip Hop Since 1987, the Philadelphia rapper was released from prison today.

Sigel’s time behind bars was a compounded sentence that stemmed from a tax evasion charge from 2012 and a separate drug charge from the summer of the same year. The former sentence gave the rapper–born Dwight Grant–two years while the latter tagged on an additional 23 months.

Sigel wasn’t slated to be freed until December, but was released earlier than expected.

Rappers close to the situation, including Spade-O of the Major Figgaz, have confirmed the news. Let’s hope that Sigel makes an appearance on the Funkmaster Flex Show sooner than latter. See a photo below.
