Portrait Of: Fat Joe

Joseph Antonio Cartagena, aka Fat Joe, has had a career as a major figure in hip-hop for over two decades. With radio-friendly hit singles like "What's Luv?" and "Lean Back," the rapper has become one of the most recognized Latino rappers in the music industry. Cartagena has also made his way into acting—most recently, in the new comedy film, "Night School." Maria Hinojosa talks with the rapper/actor in an intimate conversation about growing up in the Bronx, fatherhood and his new career.
