Uncle Sam Sends Rapper Fat Joe To Jail… (Over $1m In Taxes)
Fat Joe, real name Joseph Antonio Cartagena, begun his trial a year ago and admitted to failing to pay his taxes in 2007 and 2008 for more than $1 million in performances as well as royalties.
“You gotta understand, we hire guys who supposedly have Harvard degrees to take care of us,” he said. “At the end of the day, I’m paying all the money back. … I’ma just go like a man, stand up.”
Cartagena ended up being sentenced to 4 months in imprisonment on Monday in New Jersey for failing to file federal income taxes. Inside of a courtroom filled with friends and family as well as supporters, Cartagena appeared in shape and significantly slimmer as opposed to the size which had won him his rap nickname. He has become extremely public regarding his attempts to reduce weight immediately after fellow rap stars died through obesity-related problems, and has talked to schoolchildren, throughout New Jersey and elsewhere concerning the importance of fitness and health.
Lauryn Hill of the Fugees from New Jersey as well, was also recently sentenced to 3 months jail time owing more than $1m in taxes. “Fat Joe,” Grammy-award winning artist whose hits among them “What’s Luv,” have earned him millions, he admitted in December to neglecting to file federal tax statements in both 2007 and 2008. He generated almost $2.46 million throughout that period of time, he explained to U.S. Magistrate Judge Cathy Waldor.
