Fat Joe teamed up with Krasdale Foods and Goya Foods for his annual Thanksgiving food drive in The Bronx.
On Tuesday (Nov. 21), thousands of people were lined up for blocks in his hometown to pick up bags with some of their favorite Thanksgiving goods. In a clip posted on his Instagram page, the “All The Way Up” hitmaker said, “Every year, you know people hungry out here, man. The lines are like four times bigger. I’m happy to help, you know? You come over here, you get a Turkey, you get stuffing, you get rice… candied yams… I remember years when my mother had to borrow money to get Thanksgiving [dinner] and the fact that we can give thousands of families Thanksgiving… it’s a beautiful thing. God is great, man.”
The partnership Fat Joe has with Krasdale Food, one of The Bronx’s long-standing grocery distributors that has been around since 1908, and other local supermarkets started four years ago. See related posts below.
In related news, back in September, the Terror Squad leader gifted a pair of the newly released “Blackout” colorway of his Terror Squad x Nike Air Force 1 to Bill Clinton at the former head of state’s global initiative event.
In a video shared to Instagram, Fat Joe could be seen revealing the black-and-white kicks to the 42nd president, while deeming him an “honorary member of the squad.” During the meet up, he said, “Special delivery. Hottest sneaker in the game, sold out in five minutes. But, if I didn’t bring it to Bill, it wouldn’t be official. I love you so much. So many years, you fought for the people. We love you. I’m a huge fan of yours. Thank you so much for what you did for us, but the mailman delivers.” Check out Clinton rocking the sneakers below.
