Fat Joe is the latest celeb in Hip-Hop to be hit with a hefty tax bill now that he reportedly owes the government thousands of dollars in back taxes.

Although he’s still prepping for the release of his The Darkside album, Joey Crack’s been cited for owing the government $139,000 in federal and state taxes.

In addition to the back taxes, he was also hit with a $71,611 mortgage bill from his bank for his $2 million Florida mansion that recently went up for sale.

After reviewing public records, The Detroit News reports that Joey took out a $250,000 mortgage with SunTrustBank four years ago but was sued by the institution in January.

SunTrust was awarded a default judgment of $71,611 and the $139,000 bill for the government is reportedly still pending.

Additionally the DN reports that the IRS filed a $31,987 tax lien against him in New Jersey in addition to a $2,200 tax lien the state filed against him and his Terror Squad Productions Inc.

Joe has yet to comment on his reported tax woes.

Bronx bred emcee Fat Joe recently sat down to discuss the status of his relationship with fellow rapper Jay-Z.

In the interview with, Fat Joe states that although there is no static between him and Jay Z, he has no plans to collaborate with the Roc Nation mogul.

“I respect Jay [Z] as a business man,” Fat Joe said, “but as far as working on a project, nah.”

In addition to addressing his relationship with Jay Z, Fat Joe also talked about the issue of ageism in Hip-Hop and why there can be no age limit. Joe who turns 40 this year, states that trying to put an age limit on Hip-Hop is impossible.

“How can they say that people who are 40 can’t make good music?” Fat Joe said. “ I mean it’s obvious we are doing it, look at Busta Rhymes, Jay-Z, LL. Cool J, they have successful careers and are 40. If you tell an emcee that is 40 they can’t rap, then you are eliminating history because Hip-Hop is not even 40 years old. You can’t put an age limit on Hip-Hop. It’s not R&B, it’s not Rock, It’s Hip-Hop and Hip-Hop is still a baby so we’re writing history right now.”
