Hip-Hop icon Doug E. Fresh is reportedly being pursued by multiple banks aiming to collect over $3.5 million in debts for his New York City homes.
According to the New York Post, three of Fresh’s Harlem home mortages are behind payment and he is facing around $60,000 in debt stemming from credit card charges by American Express.
The Human Beat Box has also received a $367,000 tax lien in addition to over $40,000 currently owed to the New York tax collector. Reports show the performer recently had a foreclosure suit in Manhattan last August making that debt average around the $1.73 million range.
As front man for The Get Fresh Crew, Fresh was known in the ’80s for his “human box” sound effects. Fresh has collaborated with various rap stars including Nas, Ludacris and most famously with Slick Rick for the 80s hits “The Show” and “Ladi Dadi.”
An official response to the debt claims has yet to be released.
