Philly rapper Beanie Sigel has announced that he will release a new album titled This Time.

Although, Beanie Sigel was sentenced to 2 years in prison yesterday that isn’t holding him back as he has announced a new album that will be released on August 28th, which is 2 weeks before he has to start his prison bid on September 12th.

Sigel’s This Time is set to be released via the recently re-launched Ruffhouse Records.

Ruffhouse CEO Chris Schwartz spoke on releasing Beans’ new album through his imprint:

“We’re extremely proud to be re-launching Ruffhouse Records with Beanie Sigel as our first artist. His sentencing today doesn’t change any of that in the least. Regardless of this unfortunate situation, Beanie has created a tremendous body of work that is totally worthy of the Ruffhouse name. It’s almost ironic that the sentencing is happening on the eve of this record, because this record is about introspection and redemption. Beanie is truly one of the great lyricists in the hip-hop game. He stands tall among all the major MCs and he’s revered by all hip-hop aficionados around the world. I’m basically following the same criteria as the previous Ruffhouse Records for the artists we represent. We’re working with self-established marquee artists, and Beanie is the perfect fit.”
