Rapper Fat Joe may have to make a name change pretty soon. The Bronx, NY born MC has lost 80 pounds and dropped eight suit sizes in just one year!!!

Fat Joe, who was born Joseph Antonio Cartagena, says his weight loss is all due to Oprah Winfrey. The artist went from 370 pounds to 290 pounds after being inspired by a weight loss episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”

“All of them lost like 100 pounds. I was like, ‘Oh my God, I gotta get on this diet,’” he said.

He started out by cutting out fried food and non-essential carbohydrates, as well as working out every day with the help of a personal trainer.

“What really scares me the most is that I really love to eat,” he added.  “Me being Puerto Rican and not eating rice and beans – it’s hard!”
