    Fat Joe Claims "All Music Is African" & Says Caribbean Latinos Are Black

    The Bronx rapper shared his thoughts with Ebro Darden.
    There has been an ongoing conversation in the hip hop culture and beyond regarding ethnic inclusions and exclusions of Latinos in the Caribbean. The most recent, and notable, artist to tackle this topic has been Cardi B who has been vocal about her Dominican roots while sharing that she considers herself to be a black woman. She has shared, however, that there are plenty of people who don't share her same views.

    During his visit to Hot 97, New York rapper Fat Joe, who is of Cuban and Puerto Rican descent, was involved in a discourse about the controversial topic with Ebro Darden. The talk show host shared a clip of the conversation that began with Joe emphasizing "all music is African" and that he's been in tune with Afro-beats throughout his career.

    Things quickly moved from music to the are-Caribbean-Latinos-black dialogue, in which Joe stated that the answer is yes. "All the music is African, but you right, even in Puerto Rico when you go to the Caribbean—alright, let's speak about Latinos not being black. Latinos are black. In Cuba, at one time, there was eight million Cubans," Joe said. "Five million, unfortunately, were slaves. Three million were actual Cubans, and the integrated and had babies. Same thing with Puerto Rico when you go to Loíza. You talk about Santeria, that came from the motherland Africa. Sometimes, Latinos may even identify themselves with African and black culture more than black people. This ain't no crazy thing. Fat Joe ain't on crack. He know what he talkin' 'bout." Thoughts?

    Joe was part of Zulu Nation he ain’t stupid. Sometimes he talks too much and just rambles but he knows the root.

    Old school BX Latinos were much more accepting of black culture. Especially the Puerto Rican’s.

    Afrobeat and Kizomba been making noise all over the world for a while now. It's in the U.S. that people are just now paying attention to it. Back in 2012 i was in London and wend to a couple of clubs there. shyt was crazy. Same thing in France.

    But personally my favorite is actually Congolese music which itself doesnt fall under the afrobeat umbrella. Dope shyt tho. Ivorian music (zouglou) is pretty dope too.

    I understand what Joe is saying but all Caribbean latinos ain't black. Some Ricans have no black blood, and we know about the white cubans. They claim Spaniard colonizer not negro.

    Mexicans

    Most have no black in them. They spanish and indian.

    Ricans and cubans . Most are white or metizmo.

    On the island only 15 percent of ricans identify as black

    Domincan and Brazilian have a larger black portion. Most are either black or mulatto mix


    And they music did come from africa

    Caribbean culture is heavily rooted in african cultures though. Even white latinos dance to merengue and salsa, eat rice, chicken, plantains and beans and visit brujos :yeshrug:

    Dont tell them that.

    So many of these 'Latinos' are ashamed of being associated intimately with anything black. A nikka could be darker than wesley snipes getting heated when you refer to him as a brother.

    "Latino" is an amalgamation of Europeans, Native Americans, and African ancestry.

    I wouldn't say Latinos are black though neccesarily :hubie:

    The crazy thing is a black person would probably shoot and kill you if you called them latino. Alot of black people are ashamed of being associated intimately with anything latino/non black. A black person could be as light as a latino and break your neck for asking them if they're latino or mixed with latino.

    Hell nah. Black people are a special unique people. We don't like non black people trying to associate their selves with us. You're latino. You're damn sure not black
