TMZ reports that rapper Fat Joe has plead guilty to tax evasion after failing to pay the government a large amount of money in back taxes.
Fat Joe (age 42; real name Joseph Cartagena) was accused of not paying the government an estimated $700,000 in income taxes for 2007 and 2008. Cartagena appeared in federal court in New Jersey this morning to enter the plea. He was freed on a $250,000 bond. He's set to be sentenced in April and he could get up to two years in prison.
