Analyzing the Truthfulness in 95% of Rapper Fat Joe’s Songs
Fat Joe’s Defense of Young Thug’s Lyrics In RICO Trial.
Fat Joe’s admission that most of his fictional songs raise questions.
While many fans appreciate the storytelling and entertainment value of his music.
Joe Cartegna admits he is not the only rapper whose rap is primarily fictional.
And that the prosecutors in Jeffrey Williams, aka Young Thug’s case, were not that.
According to Complex, Joey Crack shared his thoughts during a CNN interview with Gayle King.
In that interview, Joe shared this,
“I’ve been rapping professionally for 30 years — I’ve lied in almost 95 percent of my songs,” said Joe. “I’m being honest. I write like I feel that day. I’m just being creative. You couldn’t build a jail high enough for the lyrics I’ve said on songs which are all untrue.”
This was news to his fans and followers, especially since most thought he was talking from experience.
But that was not the case. He went on to say,
“What I am is I’m a family man, someone who gives back to his community all the time. I opened businesses in my community so the music would never amount to the actual person Joseph Cartegena. What’s even more horrible is the District Attornies. They know those lyrics ain’t real. They know that’s creativity, but if it helps their case, they’ll use it to put these guys in jail.”
Rappers create a specific persona by crafting intricate stories and amplifying certain aspects of their lives.
Their lyrics often make them look larger than life to their fans.
Often, selling records becomes the premise for allegedly lying about street life.
Not to mention that their songs touch on the daily struggles of those in the masses.
Therefore, listeners can connect with the experience when they hear a rapper’s music.
While the accuracy of his lyrics may be up for debate.
It is clear that rappers’ lyrics, like Fat Joe’s and Young Thug’s, have an impact and resonate with fans.

“Jeffery would listen to beat after beat after beat. These are billions of musical chords that he would listen to. He tried and he forced himself to speak fast within the beat and rhyme words.” pic.twitter.com/uyFA8DRpCE
