Fat Joe is known drop n-bombs in any and all situations.
The problem is he lacks the melanin to do so in these woke times.
He addressed this tragic situation during a chat with Charlamagne and The Breakfast Club.
According to Joe, the n-word was burned into his DNA growing up in The Bronx among Black people. (Joe says his childhood neighborhoods were between 80 and 99 percent black.)
Joe wants to stop saying it, but he just can't.
This is always QUITE the conversation, especially for Black people who haven’t grown up in New York and always wonder “WTF” has he always been comfortable saying it?? https://t.co/tYAbv1GK9P— Andrew Jones (@TWDTV1) October 4, 2022
"We use it as love. But we know the record states that this is a negative word. I wish we never used it," Joe said, and CTG agreed "And I try my best. But you know Fat Joe, his nose, his green eyes. I've been saying this thing. It's in my DNA. It's hard. Really, seriously. I've been trying to stop. You know what I'm saying? But I've been saying this since I was born. I've offended anyone that's cool. But I want them to know no one is going to pressure Fat Joe into saying or feeling anything that he loves that he believes in. You got one life and nobody's going to tell me what to say, tell my what to do, tell me what to think. Do I look like a racist? If someone is really upset about me using the n-word, are you saying I'm a racist?"
Are you saying that?
