Fat Joe Turns Himself in for Tax Evasion

Posted on

Joey Crack might soon be known as Joey Tax.

On Monday, Fat Joe, whose real name is Joseph Cartagena, turned himself into a Federal Detention Center in Miami for tax evasion, TMZ reports.

In December, the “Make It Rain” rapper – who shed 88 lbs. in 2011 – pled guilty to failing to pay taxes during 2007 and 2008.

Cartagena will serve four months and pay a $15,000 fine, followed by a one-year supervised release.
