The Philly rapper was just sentenced to spend two years in prison for stiffing the government out of more than $700,000 in back taxes for the years 1999 to 2005 according to TMZ.

Sigel, whose actual name is Dwight Grant, pleaded guilty to tax charges in August of last year. A judge imposed a year of supervised release after the sentence which was supposed to give Sigel enough time to pay his debt to the feds. He failed to do so and told the judge he accepted full responsibility for not satisfying the whopping debt.

He has until September 12 to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons. Sigel reportedly earned more than $3 million between 1999 and 2005, but only paid $10,000 in taxes.

The man who has worked with A-game recording artists like Jay-Z, 50 Cent and R. Kelly has had a colorful history with law enforcement. According to court records, he was twice adjudged a juvenile delinquent and has three state convictions for drug distribution, possession and assault, among other offenses. Sigel was also acquitted in 2005 on attempted murder and related charges.

Sigel is slated for an album release next month.
