Rap singer Doug E. Fresh is facing tax liens from the federal and state government, along with foreclosure of three homes.

The 46-year-old entertainer, whose original name is Douglas Davis, has been hit with a $367,000 tax lien from the Internal Revenue Service, along with a $40,000 bill from New York for unpaid state taxes, according to the New York Post.

On top of that, banks have filed three foreclosure actions against him for a total of $3.5 million owed on three properties in Harlem. American Express is also pursuing him for almost $60,000 in unpaid credit card charges.

Despite the legal and financial woes, he plans to soon open a Harlem restaurant, Doug E.'s Fresh Chicken & Waffles.
