Beanie Sigel is a free man.
The rapper (born Dwight Grant) was released from a Federal Detention Center in Philadelphia today after spending nearly a year and a half behind bars for drug possession. When contacted by E! News, an officer at the Pennsylvania institution confirmed that the name Dwight Grant "is not in the system for current inmates."
Sigel was arrested after Pennsylvania State Police found unspecified pills and codeine syrup on him and a .38-caliber handgun in the car during a traffic stop in August 2012. He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor illegal drug possession in March 2013 and was sentenced to between six and 23 months in prison.
