 prison time for failing to pay taxes

"She was released several days early based on a number of factors the Bureau of Prisons takes into consideration, including good behavior. She will now start today a one-year period of probation with three months of home confinement during that year," Hill's attorney, Nathan Hochman told  the media on Friday.

Hill failed to pay taxes on more than $1.8 million earned between 2005 and 2007, as well as unpaid state and federal taxes in 2008 and 2009

Now She's is back with  her release from prison by releasing a single titled “Consumerism,” a follow-up to "Neurotic Society Compulsory Mix," which the 38-year-old released through iTunes shortly before being sentenced in July. In her latest song, Hill raps about social ills such as "compromised commercialism," sexism, "neo McCarthyism" and racism, which she had earlier cited as one of the reasons for her tax problems.

"I shuddered during sentencing when I kept hearing the term 'make the IRS whole' ... make the IRS whole, knowing that I got into these very circumstances having to deal with the very energies of inequity and resistance that created and perpetuated these savage inequalities," Hill said in a statement on her blog. "The entire time, I thought, who has made black people whole?!"
