From all indications it seems Fat Joe will not be a part of the music scene for this summer as reports have just emerged that he was sentenced to four months in federal prison for tax evasion.
Reports are that Fat Joe (Joseph Cartagena) admitted to the tax evasion responsibilities; he however blames ‘fancy guys in bow ties’ for the mishandling of his finances. Apart from the four months sentence he was also slapped with a $150,000 fine and one year of supervised release once his prison term is served.
According to reports Fat Joe failed to pay over $718,038 in taxes from 2007-2010. He has since said he will repay the entire sum.
