Benzino receives charges prepares track
Posted on November 28, 2005 by Jamie Slaughter
Benzino has been charged by the United States attorney's office for failing to record tax returns in 1999 to 2000. The rapper who propelled to fame after his famous disses towards Eminem, failed to report over $1.5 to US tax officials.
Officials would not speculate on whether Scott's tax charges are part of a larger probe, but FBI sources indicate that the inquiry also examined his relationship with The Almighty RSO.
While they were never charged, the Boston rap group became the subject of a murder investigation in relation to the 1994 slaying of Roxbury bouncer Michael Adams.
Benzino served as the co-founder of The Almighty RSO.
Benzino pleaded innocent in a U.S. District Court to willful failure to file tax returns on October 28th.
Benzino was freed on a $10,000 unsecured bond.
Benzino also informed that he was preparing work with his new rap group, in order to take a few pops at his rivals.
"I got a diss song against Eminem called 'Detox' this Friday. Capitol One N***as that is my new movement, they got something for 50 and G-Unit."
