Plaster Walls

I just plastered my walls with joint compound. The inside corner's plaster is cracked (seems from drying out). Does this matter or would the primer cover the cracks?

No The primer will not fill the cracks, you will have to do a skim coat on the corners again and then prime it, and finish coat. What probably happened was you may have put the joining compound on to thick and it cracked as it dried. I hope this will help.
