Never trust the “fancy guys in bow ties,” i.e. shady accountants. Yesterday, those men got the Bronx rapper Fat Joe locked up for four months on charges of tax evasion.

In addition to the jail time, Joe will have to pay a $15,000 fine and serve one year of supervised release. And of course, he will have to pay the IRS all of the tax money he owes. He was accused of failing to pay $718,038. He will begin serving time on Aug. 26.

Of course in the meantime, Fat Joe is working on some new music. Sadly, it seems that not enough people care. His last two singles have featured Wiz Khalifa, Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky, and French Montana, some of the game’s biggest artists, and none of them have generated a solid buzz. Not to mention, the 42-year old did drop a song titled “Instagram That Hoe.” ‘Nuff said.
