Rapper Trick Daddy is the latest in a long line of artists that the Internal Revenue Service is claiming didn’t pay their taxes. Trick Daddy owes over $157,000 in back taxes for revenue he earned as far back as 2002, according the Detroit News.
The tax problem is just one of the rapper’s monetary troubles. The Florida resident’s $320,000 home in Miami was sold last October, after a bank foreclosed on it in May.
A lien was filed against Trick and his wife in September for $85,366 for money he earned in 2007, 2008 and 2009, while another one in July was filed for $16,709 for revenue earned in 2006. Trick was also hit with a separate lien in July for $54,979, for income taxes owed in 2002.
Trick isn’t the only rapper who has run afoul of the IRS in recent months. Other artists called out by the feds this year alone include, Young Buck, Beanie Sigel and Wyclef.
Over the years, the IRS has kept a tight leash of the earnings of people in the rap industry. There is a laundry list of artists that have been in trouble for tax evasion over the years including Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Obie Trice, Method Man, Eve, DMX, Nas, Swizz Beatz, Doug E. Fresh, Mos Def, MC Hammer, Lil Kim, Big Boi, Fat Joe and D12.
