Joey Crack might soon be known as Joey Tax.

On Monday, Fat Joe, whose real name is Joseph Cartagena, turned himself into a Federal Detention Center in Miami for tax evasion, TMZ reports.

In December, the "Make It Rain" rapper – who shed 88 lbs. in 2011 – pled guilty to failing to pay taxes during 2007 and 2008.

Cartagena will serve four months and pay a $15,000 fine, followed by a one-year supervised release.
