New footage of Joey Crack surprising his daughter in time for Thanksgiving posted onto his Instagram page yesterday.
Earlier this year, Fat Joe was sentenced to four months in prison, a $15,000 fine, and a year of supervision after his release for tax evasion. According to the original report, “Joe owed $718,038 in back taxes from 2007 through 2010 but in the end, he only pleaded guilty for the two years. The report also claimed Joe made $1.18 million in 2007, more than $1.28 million in 2008, more than $265,000 in 2009, and more than $630,000 in 2010.” On August 26 of this year, Joe turned himself in to Miami’s Federal Detention Center to serve his four months. Today, according to an Instagram post by “All I Do Is Win” producer DJ Nasty, Joe has been released early–right in time for Thanksgiving dinner! There are no other details at this time.
