Fat Joe was sentenced to four months jail time for tax evasion Monday.

The rapper, born Joseph Cartagena, pled guilty in December 2012 to failing to pay taxes on more than $1 million of income in 2007 and in 2008.

His plea only covers two years, but U.S. Magistrate Cathy Waldor said she took into consideration the government's allegation that Cartagena failed to pay on some $3 million in income for years 2007 through 2010, an estimated tax loss to the government of $718,038.

Cartagena says after surviving the projects of the Bronx, New York, the last place he expected to be — was in jail. He apologized to the court, his family and supporters at his sentencing hearing in New Jersey.
