For those of you who aren't into rap and hip hop, Fat Joe is a rapper from NY. He and I are around the same age. I grew up listening to his music in high school. As his name indicates, he was recognized for being fat. One of the artists that he produced was Big Pun who died of a heart attack at age 28, and speculation places his weight at death at around 700 lbs. Whether or not that is true, Joe decided that would not be his fate. Congrats to him for losing over 100 lbs.
