Swizz Beatz Owes Federal Govt $2.6 Million in Taxes

What’s it with black superstars and their penchant for going bankrupt? Earlier, it used to be boxers but now the mantle for leading the pack of millionaires gone broke goes to rappers and there’s any number of them. The latest happens to be Swizz Beatz, the guy who exudes an air of calm. You’d think he’s a safe investor or something like that but turns out that Alicia Key’s husband owes the IRS and owes them big.

The heavyweight producer has federal tax liens filed against him to the tune of $2.6 million. Swizz has income tax issues going on since 2008, in 2010 he owed the IRS $98,246.18.
