Feds To Benzino: Show Us The Money
Today, the Boston Herald and AllHipHop.com reported that Benzino has been charged by the Feds in Massachusetts for failing to pay taxes on $1.5 million in income in 1999 and 2000.

This apparently is part of the decade-long FBI probe into Benzino and his former group, the Almighty RSO. That probe included an extensive search into Benzino's background, including whether he and his crew were involved in a homicide case.

He said, "They been investigating me for years and all they got me for is not filing taxes."

You gotta hand it to Zino. He's always ready with an entertaining quote. Here's more from his lawyer, a former federal prosecutor named Leonard Sands:

“He’s very likable, very versatile, very outgoing,” Sands said. “He’s a very down-to-earth, soft-spoken guy.”


Benzino took the opportunity of his indictment to tell Allhiphop.com he has two new dis tracks coming--one aimed at Funkmaster Flex and the other at Eminem.

Thought he and Em had squashed their beef? Well, bills must be paid.
