2. “Before I was rapping, I was always around the rap game, even though I was in the streets. I would be at all the parties and all the events, and I was pretty hard to miss.

11. “I love to eat. If I could eat everything in the world and still be healthy or wouldn’t catch a heart attack or stroke, I’d eat everything. I just can’t. So I got to watch my health and take care of my family.” – Fat Joe

12. “I was really from the streets, and I really did hustle in a major way. When I got my record deal, I left the streets alone as far as hustling. I never, ever hustled again. I said, ‘I’m gonna change my life, I’m going legit. This is where I’m at.'” – Fat Joe

13. “My coldest days, my darkest days, ain’t no sun out, all I got is my fans. They are the only people I ride for. Believe it or not, if you’re a real Fat Joe fan, a Terror Squad fan, I do it for ya’ll.” – Fat Joe

There’s more and more of a need for me to succeed or take the legacy a step further, and that’s what it is.” – Fat Joe

20. “If you really analyze my music, there is a lot of violence in my music because the Bronx, at the era and time I was coming up, was almost equivalent to how a ‘Braveheart’ or ‘Gladiator’ movie would be.” – Fat Joe

21. “Never get involved with a business that you can’t really be hands-on – that if your employees quit, you can’t run yourself. If I can’t cut hair, why open a barbershop?” – Fat Joe
