Fat Joe is not so fat no more.

Fat Joe: then and now.
Fat Joe might need to get a new name. The rapper, whose real name is Joseph Antonio Cartagena, shows off his new figure in his new (and aptly titled) track "Drop a Body". Joe, 40, got a wake-up call last year, when 7 (!) of his friends, all in their thirties, died of heart attacks. His main reason to shed some weight off his formerly 425 lbs/30st. 5lb./193 kilos? His 5-year old daughter Azaryah, as Joe puts it: "I want to be here for her. I can't die on her," he continues "health doesn't discriminate just because I'm famous."

Joe has been working for the past nine months to steadily get his weight down by working out with a trainer for 2 hours a day and eating healthier foods. It has definitely paid off, since he currently weighs 265 lbs./18 st. 13 lb./120 kilos. He's getting so thin that he even might need to change his name! His friends are already nicknaming him 'Skinny Joe' and 'Joey Flaco' (flaco being Spanish for thin). However, Joe can't see him with any other name then Fat Joe, but he just might ask Diddy (formerly known as Puff Daddy, Puffy, P. Diddy and Swag) to come up with a new name!
