Trick Daddy's Money Woes Continue, IRS Claims He Owes $157,000
Trick Daddy so busy coming up with new "thug puns" for his album titles that he forgot to pay his taxes... many, many, many times.
Trick Daddy is once again in a financial crisis. The rapper, whose Miami residence was foreclosed on by his bank in May of this year, has now run afoul of the Internal Revenue Service to the tune of more than $157,000 in unpaid back taxes, according to The Detroit News. Three separate liens have been placed against Trick Daddy dating back to this summer. The agency claims that the money is owed on the emcee’s earning from the years 2002, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009.
The man born Maurice Young appears to be the latest target of the IRS special task force whose main purpose is to investigate financial malfeasance of athletes and musicians. Just a few of the other notable names that have been investigated by the agency since the founding of the task force: Nas, Big Boi, Lil Wayne, Wyclef, Beanie Sigel, and Fat Joe.
Trick Daddy has yet to comment on the IRS’ allegations. The Dunk Ryders CEO released his autobiography, Magic City: Trials of A Native Son, in November and is currently working on www.thug.com2, a sequel to his 1998 breakthrough, www.thug.com.
