April is World Autism Awareness Month, and Fat Joe is helping spread awareness. 

Unknown to a lot of people, Joe had his son at 19, and Joey Jr. was diagnosed with Autism early on, which doctors told him would be a challenge. 

Joe didn't care, and has been an advocate and supporter ever since, celebrating World Autism Day on April 2.
