Fat Joe's Blog: Keeping It Real Is Taking Care Of Your Family

A lot of rappers live in mansions in the suburbs talking about they on the corner doing this and that, which is not true. Music is a form of entertainment. It’s no different than if Scorsese makes a movie about some serial killer. When you go in the studio, there's no telling what the music will be. It's whatever your mind tells you to make it that day, whatever the music tells you to do.

Sometimes I make happy songs, sometimes I make sad songs, sometimes I make drug dealer anthems. It doesn’t matter. It’s just on the vibe. At the end of the day, keeping it real is taking care of your family and being a real man and taking care of your kids. As far as reality rap, there are a few of us who speak reality in most of our music but I’d be lying to you if I tell you every lyric I ever said was the truth. It would be a lie, because at the end of the day, we’re poets. We’re authors and we should be held to that.

I’m by far one of the realest rappers if you check my history and what I’ve done or wherever I come from. I have a justifiable story. But when you look at it in the bigger perspective, no rapper should have to be held to those standards of if you’re a rapping gangsta then you have to walk around with a gun, you have to shoot somebody or get caught hustling. That’s not the truth. You’re a poet, you’re an author, you’re allowed to make any kind of music you want as long as it’s dope.

If you're reading this blog, you'll understand what Fat Joe is saying. I always tell kids don’t listen to a rap record and want to go rob a bodega. Use it as energy if you want to use it to work out in the gym and box, play football. You hear a DMX song and go play some football and kill them on the football field. No one should be naïve enough to be like, "Jeezy’s selling a bunch of cocaine, I’m going to Columbia." Those guys need to be educated anyway because they’re obviously followers.

Incoming Attorney General Letitia James Planning Investigation Of Donald Trump And Co.

Incoming New York Attorney General Letitia James is planning a sweeping investigation of Donald Trump, his family and anyone associated with the president.

While speaking with NBC News, James said she will use every corner of the law to look at any illegal activity committed.

“We will use every area of the law to investigate President Trump and his business transactions and that of his family as well," James said.

Specifically, James will investigate any illegal activity associated with the president's New York real-estate holdings, including the 2016 meeting with a Russian official at Trump Tower and any government subsidies he's received.

"We want to investigate anyone in his orbit who has, in fact, violated the law,” the Democratic attorney general said.

After James announced her forthcoming investigation, Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen will face the music for lying to Congress and violating campaign laws. Cohen faces four years in prison.

Petty is a registered sex offender in the state of New York and did a seven-year stint in prison for manslaughter. In conjunction with Petty, there has also been a discussion about Nicki's support of her brother Jelani Maraj, who was convicted in 2017 of child rape charges. In Palmer's report on the Queen artist's current beau, it seems like he's only reporting the news, Deadspin notes. The news site published a video of the actual report where Palmer discusses the matter with co-host Alicia Quarles.

Here’s what the next two weeks look like on the @latelateshow! Seeing the year out with a bang x x x

A post shared by James Corden (@j_corden) on Dec 10, 2018 at 5:17pm PST

In addition to the “Money” rapper, Amber Heard and Armie Hammer will also appear on the same episode. Corden is closing out the last leg of 2018 strong by having a slew of other prominent stars on the show on the last week before the program goes on break for the holidays. The likes of Gwen Stefani, RuPaul, Jennifer Lopez, Emily Blunt, Leah Remini, Lin-Manuel Miranda, among others will be featured on the show after Bardi’s Monday episode.

To say the least, we're sure the British talk show host and the newly minted Grammy-nominated rapper are going to have the time of their lives.

The 26-year-old's now estranged husband Offset, along with the other members of Migos were guests on the beloved show. Joining Corden as he drove through the streets of Los Angeles, the trio performed a slew of hits including "Walk It Talk It"  while also giving a nod of praise to past hits, including Whitney Houston's "Wanna Dance With Somebody."

With all the fun Migos had with Corden, we can only imagine what shenanigans James and Belcalis are going to get into.
