Fat Joe has slimmed down, but his personality is still as big as it's ever been. After dropping an astounding 88 pounds, Joey sat down with NYDailyNews to discuss his weight loss and why he wanted to change. "I've just seen too many of my friends die, so I've been trying to be focused," Joe explained.

How did he do it? Joey says he ate six, healthy small meals a day rather than the traditional breakfast, lunch, and dinner pattern we abide by. In addition, he also says he exercised frequently.

Despite the weight loss, Joe's moniker will remain the same.
