Fat Joe Defends Using The N-Word: I Thought I Was Black!!

During a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, Fat Joe defended his use of the “N” word.

The rapper says when he was growing up as a child, he thought he was Black.

“First of all, my projects is 90 percent, I’ll give you 80 percent, Black still. My grandmother’s projects is 99.9 percent Black to be clear. So I’m Spanish. I knew I was Latino, but the whole time I thought I was Black anyway. So, my mom lives there 40 years before I was born, in this project, and I’m born blond hair, green eyes. This sh-t crazy, right?” he explained.

He continued, “She brings me there, the first thing is they go, ‘Oh, look at this little n-gga Joey. He got green eyes.’ The minute I’m walking, the guys in the building is like, ‘Yo, look at that little n-gga Joe, little Fat Joe.’ That’s all I knew my whole life before even elementary.”
He continued, “It’s a lot of woke society or something going on these days and Twitter and all that I guess they don’t understand where I come from, where I was born or how I was raised or how I lived my whole entire life.”

Fat Joe says the term is used with love.
