Busta Rhymes in deep debt with the IRS


Rappers just don’t seem to want to pay taxes.

The latest rapper to fall victim to the IRS’ all-seeing eye is hip-hop stalwart Busta Rhymes.

Rhymes, born Trevor Smith, needs to come up with $780,000 to get back into Uncle Sam’s good graces. This after Busta reportedly neglected to make tax payments of $611,000 in 2008, and $178,000 in 2012.

Rhymes is currently putting the finishing touches on his upcoming second album for Cash Money records titled Extinction Level Event 2, which is scheduled to be released July 4.
