Beanie Sigel Sentenced to 1 Day in Jail, Facing 6 Months in Halfway House

Beanie Sigel was sentenced to one day in federal prison on Wednesday (January 9) for a violation of his probation. According to the Associated Press, U.S. District Judge R. Barclay Surrick handed down the sentence and also extended the rapper’s probation by 18 months after Beans took an unauthorized trip to Atlantic City and made contact with a convicted felon. The first six months of the extended probation will be served in a halfway house, which will severely limit his ability to travel or promote his new album, The Solution. Although Beanie has recently made an effort to portray himself as a changed man, Judge Surrick explained that he needed to show that through his actions. The MC recently shot an anti-violence PSA and joined outspoken comedian Bill Cosby for a peace march in his hometown of Philadelphia. “If they’re looking at you as a role model, you’ve got to do the right thing,” Surrick told Beanie. In 2005, the Rocafella artist served a year in federal prison on a gun conviction.

    cops are just doin this because he was on that commercial



    How can you can you have any sympathy for Beans? He is a grown man allbeit, a clown, a puppet and incredibly talentless rap act. dude is a make-believe hard rock. Lol @ Beans got tough after he made the State Property movies. lmfao @ beans shooting a dude to look like the man for some coke-head strippers, ROTFLMAO @ trying to create a buzz for a flop record. Ya morons can’t see the reality of this business if someone gave you a microscope and a telescope. Do the math (Beans – Jay-Z = <<<<>>>>) another anecodote in hip hop history, a mere blip on the radar screen for the early 2000′s thats all he is-was rather. Im mad at my self for wasting finger movements on this herb.

He ain’t really THAT hungry no more, cuz he had minor success, so y not jus fall tha fuc back n chill? I mean, peep Freeway. Chillin’. Young Chris-chillin’. But bottom line Beans, if u knew better, u’d do better. Smarten the fuck up Broadstreet Dummy.
