A tweet from Fat Joe on Monday indicates that the rapper is headed to begin his four-month prison sentence after being found guilty of tax evasion.
Joe, real name Joseph Cartagena, failed to pay taxes on more than $1 million income in 2007 and 2008 from performances and music royalties.
Per Joe “There was a lot going on in the years that I didn’t file my taxes, but it was my responsibility,” Fat Joe told the court. “I did everything I could to achieve what I could, to move my family; I tried to stay positive, focus on the positive, and get myself out.”
He is scheduled to report to prison today Aug. 26. 2013
