Fat Joe has had a storied career in the world of hip-hop, however, that has not stopped him from comparing himself to the new generation.
More details below…
Speaking to Rolling Stone for their podcast ‘Rolling Stone Music Now,’ Fat Joe opened up about his new autobiography and some of the moments that shaped who he is.
One such moment was appearing shirtless in a video for his song with Ashanti and Ja Rule called ‘What’s Luv?.’ This is when he compared himself to Lizzo, saying:
“I went out there with no shirt on. F****n’ America loved it. I might have been the first Lizzo. I came out that motherf*****r and they lost it. Sales started going up. Everything was rising to the top.”
He did not elaborate more on the subject and instead focused on other topics like how DJ Khaled gets too much hate and is a “legend” and his friend Big Pun.
Fat Joe’s book – ‘The Book of José’ – is available at all major retailers now.
