Fat Joe

From his early days as a member of D.I.T.C. to bringing Pun and the Terror Squad to the masses to his own success in the early 2000s with hits like "What's Luv" and "We Thuggin," Fat Joe has enjoyed a longevity in the game that rarely gets the credit it deserves. He dropped Darkside Vol. 3 in 2013 and shows no signs of slowing down.
