Rapper Fat Joe, whose real name is Joseph Cartagena, is headed to jail for four months as the result of a tax evasion charge. 

Cartagena failed to pay taxes on more than $1 million income in 2007 and 2008 from performances and music royalties. He plead guilty to tax evasion in December 2012.

In addition to the prison term, Cartagena was sentenced to one-year of supervised release and fined him $15,000. 

Fat Joe will begin serving out his four month stint in jail on August 26 of this year.
