Beanie Sigel no longer looks like the "Broad Street Bully" that hip-hop fans have grown accustomed to.

Take a look at his Instagram page, and you'll see that the Philly MC has lost a ton of weight and is looking quite slim these days. 

"Health is wealth. I feel like a million bucks," Beanie says in one of his posts. 

Inquisitr reminds us that Beanie got shot last December and had to have one of his lungs removed as a result. Recuperating from that injury probably contributed to his leaner body.

Beanie's been a mainstay in hip-hop, so hopefully his physical transformation will inspire other artists to get fit, too.
