Sigel – born Dwight Grant – served a year in a Fairton, N.J., federal prison after pleading guilty to weapons and drug charges stemming from a 2002 traffic stop in Philadelphia.
His retrial for attempted murder begins September 19th. Prosecutors allege Sigel shot Terrance Speller outside a Philadelphia strip club in July 2003. His first trial, in April 2004, resulted in a hung jury.
Sigel’s third album, The B. Coming, was released earlier this year.
