Born and bred in the South Bronx, Latino rapper Fat Joe (aka Fat Joe da Gangsta, Joey Cracky or his government name Joe Cartagena) secured a record deal with Relativity early on in his career.
From the onset, the MC made hits. His single "Flow Joe" from his debut peaked at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Rap Singles chart. His most notable single, "Lean Back," made it cool for non-dancing dudes across the country to stay calm, cool and collected in the club.
He's still go that undeniable swag and unwavering Bronx spirit that we can't wait to experience at this year's BET Awards.
