Absolutely terrible news. According to local New Jersey news reports, Beanie Sigel was shot this morning in the Jersey Shore suburb of Pleasantville. Press of Atlantic City reports he was shot in the torso and is being treated at the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.
Beanie was just released from prison in August, after serving two years on tax evasion. And since then he’s been confined to Philadelphia, staying at a halfway house. Not sure whether he had clearance to travel outside the state to NJ when he was shot.
This is a disturbing turn of events when things were just starting to look up. A few weeks ago Beanie sounded sharp on his first post-prison lyrical appearance with Young Chris.
Sigh. We’ll keep you updated.
