Damon Dash Music

Group’s star rapper Beanie Sigel was released this morning (August 9) from a

Federal Correctional Institution in Fairton, New Jersey.

Sigel was welcomed

home by his mother, Michelle Brown-Derry, his fiancée Melissa and DDMG’s

Damon Dash and Kareem "Biggs" Burke.

Sigel entered prison

on November 8 and was released after serving most of a one year sentence for

gun possession charges.

Sigel was already

tried for attempted murder last April, stemming from a July 2003 shooting outside

of a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania bar.

A mistrial was

declared when the jury could not reach a verdict.

Fans supported

Sigel during his stint behind bars. His latest release The B. Coming

debuted at #3 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart, the highest of Sigel’s career.

The album has moved

over 300,000 copies since being released in March.

Sigel is immediately

planning a tour to support The B. Coming and he will also drop a DVD

August 23rd.

The DVD will include

personal commentary from Sigel himself, BET’s uncut three part special "The

Truth", "The Trial" and "House Arrest", the "Feel

It In The Air" video and never before seen concert footage from a performance

at club Exit in New York City.
