*Beanie Sigel was released from prison after spending two years behind bars.

Sigel was in lockdown for not paying his taxes from 2003 – 2005, but in 2012 the taxman caught up with him.

During that time, his career took a dive in 2004 after going to prison for the first time for drug and gun charges.

Sigel will spend some time in a halfway house to help him transition back into the real world.

In other news, Black Twitter blasted Nelly for promoting Cheerios on Twitter instead of posting about the death of Michael Brown.

A police officer shot Brown to death last weekend in Ferguson, Mo. — right outside of St. Louis where Nelly grew up and still owns a home.

The photo above of Nelly holding a box of Cheerios was met with much criticism since he acknowledged the product over a black teenager who died at the hands of a racist system — right outside of his hometown.

Check out how Black Twitter went in on Nelly below:
