Fat Joe spent 4 months in jail for failing to pay taxes up to $700,000 in 2007 and 2008. But he didn’t want to take responsibility for his mistake, instead blaming the guys he hired to take care of it for him saying, “You gotta understand we hire guys who are supposed to have Harvard degrees to take care of us.”
