Method Man forgot to pay his taxes but unlike many others who just make up excuses, he’s honest. He says he forgot to pay because he got high. The self-professed pot head had simply forgotten to pay his taxes since 2002 saying “It’s no secret. Everyone knows that. I go on the road and forget everything else. Sure, [the tax department] sent letters to my house saying, ‘We need this money.’ They started sending them in 2002.” Declared $52,503 in arrears on his personal income taxes, the NYPD and the repo man recently showed up to his house and took his 2008 Lincoln Navigator. It was then that the rapper realized that “I have to get all my paperwork together. That means days of going through mail, ’cause I got mail like woah.”

TI has finally been sentenced and the judge says that he has to go to jail for a year and a day. An Atlanta federal court sentenced the 28-year old rapper last week on federal weapons charges related to buying machine guns and silencers. The plea deal also requires TI to be subjected to a number of requirements after his prison sentence including “an audit of his finances, drug counseling, DNA testing and random searches of his property, and he will not be able to own firearms.” The rapper must also complete 500 hours of community service after jail time. He has between 30 and 60 days to turn himself in.
