Report: Beanie Sigel Released From Prison to Half-Way House

Earlier today, photos of Dwight Grant, better known in these parts as rapper Beanie Sigel, aka The Broad Street Bully, started circulating on the social media.

Now TMZ is reporting that Sigel has been released from prison to a half-way house. (The Federal Bureau of Prisons lists his release date from FCI Schuylkill as 12/06/2014.)


This news comes nearly two years after he was first incarcerated following a traffic stop on I-95 in Tinicum and eventually sentenced to 6 to 23 months on drug charges in March 2013. At the time of his August 2012 traffic stop, he was already facing a two-year federal tax evasion sentence, which the rapper served concurrently.
