Fat Joe’s new single “Love Me Long Time” could not come at a better time, as the rapper wants to make sure fans will be around after he does his four month jail time in a federal prison for tax invasion.
The Bronx emcee teams up with the auto-king Future for the Eif Rivera video which highlights some of the finer things in life.
Shot in a decked out mansion, the video features Joe chasing after a lady who he thought would be there with him through thick and thin and love him long time. In the end it turns out she was a user and had other sugar daddy’s. Hopefully that will not be the case when Joey Crack turns himself into the Feds on August 26th.
Fat Joe is the latest celeb to get caught up with the IRS. The government cracked down on Joey Crack with a 4-month sentence in prison for failing to pay more than $1 million in income taxes.
Fat Joe, pled guilty back in December to tax evasion for the years 2007 and 2008. He originally faced up to two years prison, however Monday he sentenced to just 4 months in prison, a $15,000 fine, and one-year supervised release.
Fat Joe is amongst a list of celebrities who have received jail time for failing to pay taxes. Grammy Award winning singer and MC Lauryn Hill was sentenced to three months in prison for or failing to pay taxes on an estimated $1.8 million in income she earned from 2005 to 2007.
Actor Wesley Snipes was also convicted in 2008 with tax evasion. The “New Jack City” actor served two years in prison for his conviction.
