So You Wonder Why They Call it Rap?

3/29/2008 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So you think you got troubles? Rapper Beanie Sigel has just been thrown in the pokey -- again.

Sigel was sentenced to three months in prison for giving his probation officers a fake a urine sample. Oh yeah, he had also tested positive five times this month for Xanax and Percocet.

Sigel, who, thank God, changed his name from Dwight Grant (that's sooo white collar), was in the middle of serving a six-month term in a halfway house for violating a prior supervised release. Even if you aren't following this precisely, you're getting the point.

Oh yeah, in 2004, he was sentenced to a year in prison for weapons and drug charges. But Sigel had some good news, too -- in 2005 he was acquitted of attempted murder charges.

If your kid stayed out too late last night, don't come down too hard on her. Things could be worse.

How can 13% of the population cause so many problems?

Is it genetic?

Jesus, it's like they just can't help themselves.

Send him a care package, K-Y and the Koran. Then he can make one more name change to Beanie Brain

If you don't know beans, you don't listen to rap ... so your opinion only shows your ignorance to the subject ... who cares what he puts into his own body anyway ... it's not anyones business but his own ... people love to stick there noses where they don't belong ...
