The rapper Fat Joe is a legend in the rap game. He has delivered us countless songs that are truly unforgettable and we’ve listened to his music for many years. Fat Joe is definitely beloved in the rap game and now he’s beloved for his actions for Puerto Rico as well. Fat Joe is Puerto Rican and helped out the island in a major way after it was dealt a devastating blow by Hurricane Maria. The response time to Puerto Rico’s disaster wasn’t exactly prompt so someone had to do something and that is exactly when Fat Joe stepped in.
The Puerto Rican rapper had to enlist the help of his friend Jay-Z and the company Tidal to try and help fundraise 200,000 pounds of supplies so that they could send a plane to Puerto Rico. He was nervous and didn’t know if he would be able to come through with the supplies that were needed in a fast enough time.
They decided to use Tidal to collect donations from New York and even the Governor Andrew Cuomo jumped in and began to help. Pitbull eventually jumped on board as did Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. By the end of the day what Fat Joe accomplished was truly amazing. He didn’t get 200,000 pounds for one plane, he got a million pounds on five planes. Also, he is now expected to be able to load up five more planes and send a million more. In total Fat Joe will send two million pounds of supplies to the desperate Puerto Rico.
The desperate Puerto Ricans will now get water, canned food, women’s hygienes and toothpaste all thanks to the Terror Squad rapper who decided to step to the plate and really do something.
When most people think of rappers they think of them as bad guys but Fat Joe has proved otherwise thanks to his charitable actions and helping out a desperate island in this time of need. Puerto Rico still is in need of donations so if you could take after this great man and donate some supplies to the island of Puerto Rico it would be very much appreciated by everyone, especially Fat Joe.
What Fat Joe was able to accomplish is truly inspiring. It really goes to show you what happens when you put your mind to something. Nothing feels better than truly helping people who are in need and no one knows that better than the amazing Fat Joe. Jay-Z is fantastic as well for agreeing to use Tidal to help collect donations and without a doubt, their actions have had a huge impact on the island and they will continue to make an impact with their charitable donations and not with their music. They’re not just legends in the industry, now they’re legends in the face of adversity.
