Fat Joe Talks Weight Loss, Advice For Rick Ross

Joey Crack talks shedding the pounds, and whether he has any health advice for the Bawse.

In the wake of Fat Joe's weight loss this summer, some have questioned whether Don Cartagena would change his stage name.

“I’m Fat Joe,” he stated emphatically. “I’m still fat. You know the fact is if I didn’t do it for health reasons I would be fuckin’ 1,000 pounds happy. I love to eat that’s what I do.”
Joey Crack’s friend and fellow heavy-set collaborator Rick Ross recently suffered two seizures that many are speculating are connected to the Bawse’s weight. Yet when asked by XXL if he had any thoughts on Rozay’s current situation, Crills said he had no advice.
“He’s a grown man,” Joe said of Ross. “Whatever his health problems are he’s gonna deal with them or do whatever he got [to do]. I can’t offer that man nothin’.”

“I’m Fat Joe,” he maintained in an interview with XXLMag.com. “I’m still fat. You know the fact is if I didn’t do it for health reasons I would be fuckin’ 1,000 pounds happy. I love to eat; that’s what I do.”

Regardless of what Joey wants to call himself, however, it's natural to wonder whether he had any advice to give another heavy-set rapper, Rick Ross, who recently suffered two seizures.

“He’s a grown man,” responded Joe. “Whatever his health problems are he’s gonna deal with them or do whatever he got [to do]. I can’t offer that man nothin’.”

Fat Joe is currently prepping the release of his mixtape The Darkside, Vol. 2.

    Fat Joe took the easy way out and had gastric bypass surgery. There's no advice he can give.

  • Fon Z

    I dislike both... but if i had to choose.. Fat Joe > Rick Ross! Fuck the police

  • TheCrit

    this only useful to fat people. not to hip hop heads

  • Andre Stepurlifegameup Cooper

    Again the question i ask.....What does having a seizure have to do with losing weight? No one was saying ross needed to lose weight until he had them issues.... Brain disorder nothing to do with weight....Ross is a grown man and that is his issue if he wants to eat himself to death.... Wkend moving slow i see smh

    • BlazeDatIshUp

      lmao@dan... I'm sure seizures and other problems are linked to having too much weight in some way or form. Regardless folks should want to lose weight for their own personal health. I don't like either of these wack fucks(I can tolerate joe though), but if joe chose to lose weight then its all good and in some ways he is right, the only person who can tell ross what to do is ross..

    • killa city mo

      my mom weighs 120 pounds and that bitch has seizures all the time... its a brain thing. im sure ross should lose some weight but ppl have random seizures all the time

    • fcvs

      "...the seizures were caused by extreme exhaustion, according to Wale." ROFL wait a second, wale is a doctor now?

    • 1984

      Actually there really is no real explanation as to what can actually cause a seizure. For all we know Ross could have diabetes and that caused it. Or maybe Ross is epileptic and he doesnt know it. Fact of the matter none of you fuckers know shit about it so stop speakin on it. Fuckin fags

    • Negro

      You don't even remember Big Pun so shut the fuck up, kid! Tech Nine just did 58 days...so this is the first tour that Ross goes on?? Goddamed negro idiots! Step your game up nigga, niggaz is supposed to be smarter than crackaz these days!

    • Malcolm J. William Ault

      More weight can cause seizures that come stress easier. The physical stress of Ross being fat combined with doing multiple shows caused the twin seizures to happen easier. Tech N9ne just did a 58 day tour and he's laughing. Ross does a week and has 2 seizures within hours of each other? Being fat has everything to do with it. Remember Big Pun at the end of his life?

    • Brandon Hamm

      LOL @ big dick dan... But yeah, Andre's right, the seizures were caused by extreme exhaustion, according to Wale. I think it's more of a connection between health issues and weight in general that would lead to people associating the two.

    • big dick dan

      You are so cute!!! Be my boyfriend

  • Karma

    Well you can offer sympathy for one. But whatever.

  • 1984
