Fat Joe May Wanna Come Up With Another Name!

He made the world Lean Back about 6 years ago and now he’s about to kick off a new tune. How about the tune of close to 100 pounds! Read the story below to see how Fat Joe is working on getting things in a different perspective.

After losing seven friends (all in their 30s) last year to heart attacks, Fat Joe shifted his focus from dropping beats to dropping weight: The rapper has lost 88 pounds in the past nine months.

“What’s the difference between me and [my friends]? Health doesn’t discriminate just because I’m famous,” the 40-year-old told the New York Daily News. “I can’t leave my daughter behind. I want to be here for her; I don’t want to die on her.”

The Bronx native, whose real name is Joseph Antonio Cartagena, debuted his slimmed-down frame in his new music video for “Drop a Body” Tuesday. Once topping the scales at 425 pounds, the 6-foot-2 heavyweight is now around the 265-pound range.

Fat Joe, known for the 2004 hit “Lean Back,” leaned out by trading his high-fat, high-carb plates for six healthy small meals a day in addition to weight-training and cardio sessions with his trainer.

So will his new weight loss call for a change in alias? “They’re all trying to alter my name, but I can’t see myself as anything else,” he told the Daily News, referring to friends who started calling him “Skinny Joe” and “Joey Flaco” (Spanish for “thin”). “I think I gotta ask Diddy what my new name is.”

Trying the live healthier now is the new style of doing it. Actually trying to lose the weight myself, I can admit that it is a trying process. Good Luck to Fat Joe on his new lease on life. Keep it Up!
