Rapper Beanie Sigel will hit the road for a final tour before starting a jail term in September (12).
The 38 year old, real name Dwight Grant, was sentenced to two years behind bars for tax evasion last month (Jul12) and has been ordered to turn himself in to authorities in Pennsylvania by 12 September (12).
He recently announced plans to release a new album two weeks before he checks into prison, and now representatives at his record label have confirmed he will also be playing shows across the U.S.
Ruffhouse Records Ceo Chris Schwartz says, “Regardless of his unfortunate situation, Beanie has created a tremendous body of work that is totally worthy of the Ruffhouse name. He stands tall among all the major MCs and he’s revered by all hip-hop aficionados around the world."
