XXLMag.com spoke to Fat Joe about his weight loss and Rick Ross...
Fat Joe may not be shopping in the big and tall section anymore, but just because the Bronx-bred rap vet recently lost close to 100 pounds, donât expect him to change his name anytime soon. When XXLMag.com asked Fat Joe if he would ever switch up his alias now that heâs skinnier, Don Cartegena, replied with a hefty, âHell no!â âIâm Fat Joe,â he stated emphatically. âIâm still fat. You know the fact is if I didnât do it for health reasons I would be fuckinâ 1,000 pounds happy. I love to eat thatâs what I do.â
Joey Crackâs friend and fellow heavy-set collaborator Rick Ross recently suffered two seizures that many are speculating are connected to the Bawseâs weight. Yet when asked by XXL if he had any thoughts on Rozayâs current situation, Crills said he had no advice.
âHeâs a grown man,â Joe said of Ross. âWhatever his health problems are heâs gonna deal with them or do whatever he got [to do]. I canât offer that man nothinâ.â
Joe is currently prepping the release of his new mixtape, The Darkside, Vol. Two, set to drop online for free download on Halloween (October 31). As previously reported, the disc will feature songs with French Montana, Raekwon and Jadakiss.
