Fat Joe Not Retiring From Rap Anytime Soon

Fat Joe is a long way from retiring.

In a recent interview he was asked whether he would be putting the mic down soon.

"I don't think so. I mean, I'm really good at this sh*t, man. And I'm on time," he said. "I know when rappers gotta give it up. A lot of legends that we looked up to was the illest in the world, [but] when they got older, they wasn't on point with the flow, they weren't on point with everything. They sounded dated [...] Fat Joe knows everything going on. I'm pushin' P right now."

Fat Joe also thinks he hasn't been given the credit he deserves.

"I never get the credit that I deserve. You don't get the credit that you deserve," he said. "But that's the sh*t that keeps us going [...] When I do music, for like the past 10 years, it wasn't even doing music for people that's living. I'm doing it for 20 years, 30 years from now, for the kids that got no opinion, that got no bias, that got no crew, ain't got no team. When they start studying hip hop in 20, 30 years from now, when they do the math, they're gonna be like, 'This is one nasty mutherf*cker out here. He was putting in that work.' That's what it's about for me now."
