Every rapper has a favorite rapper or at least a list of emcees that they are really big fans of. In the case of Fat Joe, that emcee is the artist now known as Ye. During his appearance on the “I Am Athlete” podcast, the Bronx native opened up about his love for Kanye West. “Kanye is my favorite rapper in the world, and I love him to death. He’s my favorite rapper, he’s been my favorite rapper,” said Joey Crack.
