Swizz Beatz Owes Over $2.6 Million In Taxes

Mr. Game Time's tax problems come to light.

While Swizz Beatz can hang his hat on a successful career, a recent marriage and the birth of a son, his finances aren't entirely in order.

Swizz joins a bevy of artists who've failed to pay their taxes on time, and detnews.com's "Tax Watchdog" segment has revealed an itemized list of what he owes.

The list includes a $283,562 lien against the producer, filed by the IRS on Monday (January 3) with the New York City register; a $134,738 tax warrant against him and ex-wife Mashonda filed by New York; and various other liens filed in 2008, dating back to taxes owed from 2006.

The address on the newest lien is Swizz' mansion in Ponoma, New York.

Other Hip Hop artists who're now in Uncle Sam's debt include Xzibit, Lil Wayne, Flavor Flav, Nas, Fat Joe, Doug E. Fresh, Omarion, Method Man, and others.
