Fat Joe and me go way back, I mean, he doesn’t know this, as the relationship is one sided. However, we go way back. I’ve been listening to this guy since I was a teenager. I still remember how he and Big Pun were slaughtering the streets of the Bronx. Mixtape after mixtape that we’d buy at Sandy’s Music World, you’d hear one of them, or both of them together. Pun is gone, RIP, but as Joe will tell you himself, Pun lives on in his work. If you watch the snippet below of Music Choice Chronicles, you’ll hear Fat Joe tell us how Big Pun taught him to make hit records. It’s amazing how this man pays homage to his friend.
During this series, you’ll get an inside look at how Fat Joe came up in the rap game. He’ll take you through the path that a Latino from the South Bronx took to reach the heights that he has. Music Choice is giving us this awesome look behind the scenes, and into the past. Before Rick Ross was taking off his shirt in shows, Fat Joe was already doing it, asking us “What’s love got to do with it, got to do with it?” I still remember watching this MTV performance at my buddy’s house. Not too bad for a boy from the projects, right? My wife recently saw Fat Joe perform at a corporate event for a company she works with.
It is very cool to see Fat Joe get the recognition he deserves, and it is cool to see him talk so candidly about his life. If you’d like to see more, keep on reading, all the details are below!
