Fat Joe Pleads Guilty to Tax Evasion
Fat Joe "has taken responsibility for his tax failures," his defense attorney stated.
Rapper Fat Joe plead guilty in a Newark, New Jersey court to tax evasion on Thursday.
The artist, whose name is Joseph Cartagena, owed more than $700,000 in taxes to the federal government, prosecutors alleged, according to the Associated Press.

The artist is currently free on $250,000 bail and could face up to two years in prison when he's sentenced on April 3, the newspaper stated.
