Beanie Sigel

Released From Prison

Half Way Home

Exclusive Details

Rapper Beanie Sigel is back on the streets ... a free man after spending 2 years behind bars.

Beanie was popped in 2012 for dodging the taxman to the tune of $700,000 between 2003-05.

Beanie's worked with some of the biggest names in rap -- including Snoop and Jay Z -- but his career essentially died after his first trip to the big house in 2004 ... for drug and gun crimes.

Law enforcement sources tell us Beanie will spend time at a halfway house to help him transition.

DJ Drama posted a photo of Beanie on Instagram ... welcoming the rapper home.

If he doesn't have to still pay the money back...2 years is like $958 a day. Not bad wages for doin' nuthin' all day.

IF SIGEL HAY STAYED OUT OF TROUBLE DURING HIS CAREER, HE WOULD BE ONE OF THE LARGEST IN HIP HOP. HE HAS THE RESPECT LYRIC WISE ETC., BUT JUST TO MUCH TIME IN COURT ETC., I ALWAYS LOVED DUDES MUSIC AND HOW HE REPRESENTED PHILADELPHIA!!! ALL THE BEST SIGEL AND HOPE A COMEBACK IS UP NEXT FOR YOU. WOULD BE NICE TO SEE YOU BACK WITH JAY Z, IF NOT JAY, MAYBE CASH MONEY/YOUNG MONEY!!!
