Joseph Cartagena officially changed his name to Fat Joe when he started his music career.

Fat Joe used to get bullied a lot and eventually stood up for himself.

He also accepted who he was at a very young age.

The worst part of being bullied was when his best friend joined the bullies after they threatened to beat him too.

He recalled being sad and crying for a while, but the experience changed his perspective on life.

Joe became a judge on Pepsi Wild Cherry Your Wildest Dreams, a virtual competition about hip hop.

Joe has been married to Lorena Cartagena for 26 years and plans to remain with her for as long as possible.

Fans could watch the complete episode of the show’s premiere on Monday.

The series will feature several Hip-hop stars and their experiences from childhood until their time as successful rappers.
