After prison bids, owing taxes is slowly becoming the new rite of passage of rappers. Beef between rappers is beginning to pale in comparison to their battles with Uncle Sam. MC Hammer got the ball rolling with his $30 Million bill to the IRS (that later led to a one-sided beef with Jay-Z) and now everyone from Young Buck to Ja Rule is ready to give their accountants a beat down.
Here, theBVX runs down a few others who have faced the IRS music.
Young Buck (born David Brown)
Amount owed: More than $300,000 in back taxes last year What had happened was: When Young Buck and 50 Cent‘s relationship soured, ending his G-Unit affiliation, Buck claimed his financial backing went down the tubes too. In an interview in 2010 with vibe.com, the multiplatinum rapper describes how IRS agents raided his Tennessee home at 6:30 a.m. one morning last August, allegedly with guns drawn, attempting to seize his assets. “If you coming just to serve some tax papers and take assets, then you wouldn’t have M-16s, 12 gauges and glocks all out,” he said. “They making it seem like it’s a drug raid.” (Buck says he owed only $164,000.)
