6 years ago Shive Magazine 45
Fat Joe is celebrating his recent weight lost. The 6-foot, 2-inch rapper lost 88 pounds, slimming down from 425 pounds to 285! In a recent interview with the New York Daily News, he said that his motivation was the loss of seven of his friends in the last year. They were all just in their 30s and died of heart attacks brought on by morbid obesity. Rapper, Big Pun, who was his biggest discovery, also died of a heart attack back in 2002. He spoke of his successful weight loss during a recent interview with the New York Daily News.
“Everybody needs to educate themselves. If you’re from the inner city, the hood, Bronx, Harlem, Brooklyn, whatever, and you go to your store and there ain’t no diet Snapple’s in there, ain’t no sugar free candies, you need to tell them, yo, I need that.”
“I can’t leave my daughter behind. I want to be here for her; I don’t want to die on her,” he told the press.
So…If he continues to lose weight, What would we call him?
