FAT JOE RESPONDS TO CRITICISM OVER USING THE N-WORD: Fat Joe addressed the criticism he's received over using the N-word. During a recent radio interview, Joe explained, “First of all, my projects is 90 percent, I’ll give you 80 percent, Black still. My grandmother’s projects is 99.9 percent Black to be clear. So I’m Spanish. I knew I was Latino, but the whole time I thought I was Black anyway. So, my mom lives there 40 years before I was born, in this project, and I’m born blond hair, green eyes. This sh*t crazy, right? She brings me there, the first thing is they go, ‘Oh, look at this little n***a Joey. He got green eyes.’ The minute I’m walking, the guys in the building is like, ‘Yo, look at that little n***a Joe, little Fat Joe.’ That’s all I knew my whole life before even elementary.”
- He continued, “It’s a lot of woke society or something going on these days and Twitter and all that I guess they don’t understand where I come from, where I was born or how I was raised or how I lived my whole entire life. Now we know, we use it as love. We know that the record states that this is a negative word and I wish we never used it, you know? And I try my best … I been saying this thing … in my DNA. It's hard. Really, seriously I been trying to stop, but I been saying this since I was born. I tried the greatest level I can to try to understand if I'm offering anybody and that's cool. No one's going to pressure Fat Joe into not feeling or saying anything that he loves or believes in. No one's ever going to do that. You get one life and nobody gonna try to tell me what to say, tell me do, tell me what to think.”
