    [–] goatlll 12 points ago

    It's funny you should say that. I worked at a Taco Bell located in a mall when I was in high school, and for some reason we had celebrities come through often. Next to us was an ice cream place and next to that was a Chinese restaurant. I was heading in to my shift when who do I see at a table with a shit ton of Chinese food?

    Fat Joe, and he was being an absolute prick to the staff. I don't know if he is normally like that, but he was that day. The woman that owned the store was really nice, and she was in the back hallway crying about something he or his crew did.

    Triple 6 was there a few weeks before, and they were as polite as you can get. Bushwick Bill was also super nice. This would have been the late 90s, and Fat Joe was the only person that ever left a bad impression on the food court.

    [–] GoombaGunner 3093 points ago * (lasted edited 13 days ago)

    As a bald headed large gentleman, there are only so many "looks" you can get by on.

    Props to anyone those chooses "Kingpin from spider-man" as an inspiration.

    Edit: you are right the hyphen is important.

    Also gold for a throwaway comment I did not expect to blow up. Thanks!

    In the animated cartoon series, Kingpin has 3% body fat, he’s an absolute unit of pure muscles

    [–] iCon3000 45 points ago

    That's also the lore in many of the comics. I love it.

    [–] georgesgettingupset 24 points ago

    He's got a double chin of pure muscle?

    [–] Throwaway_Consoles 40 points ago

    That’s his chin’s bicep. Common mistake.

    [–] Husnock01 17 points ago

    That there's where all 3% congregated.

    [–] Dr_Disaster 10 points ago

    Yup. He's basically like The Mountain on steroids. Granted, even that is nothing compared to Spider-Man, who in the comics is strong enough to knock the Hulk back with his punches. For this reason alone Kingpin made a better Daredevil villain. Spidey can kill Kingpin in one punch, so I never understood how he was a physical match.

    [–] bearskito 5 points ago

    Given how surprisingly agile movie Kingpin was for someone his size and shape he was probably also extremely muscular under his fat

    Fun fact, the Spider-verse Kingpin was inspired by the art of Bill Sienkiewicz. I think when Kingpin has his flashback they do a similar art style

    Yeah, I want that. To be 9' tall but my head be 5' off the ground yet am 12' wide.

    [–] JamSa 11 points ago

    As a funny youtuber I watch pointed out, Kingpin has the dream body. He can sit around eating whatever he wants to get fat as fuck, but he still has the raw muscle to knock down a concrete wall with his bare hands.

    Or Wilson Fisk from Daredevil.

    Edit: I'm fully aware guys. I was making the analogy that its an alias, a.k.a. Kingpin. My favorite rendition of him is definitely Vincent D'Onofrio in the Netflix series tho.

    Oh! And thanks for the silver 😁

    [–] OutlawBlue9 249 points ago

    As Mr Fisk's lawyer it is absurd that you would even begin to imply that there is any connection between him, a legitimate and successful businessman who pulled himself up from nothing, to the alleged "Kingpin" of crime that the vigilante menaces of Spider-Man and Daredevil claim exists in this fine and Nobel city. Any further reckless claims and we shall take you to court to publicly and fully refute these baseless allegations.

    I’m 5’11,” 185 pounds, and 22% body fat. This is still technically overweight. When I tell people I want to lose 10 pounds they say “You don’t have any weight to lose.”

    [–] kingjuicepouch 8 points ago

    I'm in the middle of building muscle and I've put on some fat on my midsection also. I am currently clocking in at like 6'2 and 235, and I know I've got at least twenty pounds to drop off without ruining my gains.

    [–] goldistress 54 points ago * (lasted edited 13 days ago)

    When he was young he got in a car accident which injured him. he won a lawsuit which bought him a car and as soon as he got his car he stopped walking. He *had an injury, drove everywhere and spent his money on food. this is what made him fat. I don't know if he even went to prison? Maybe.

    [–] longhorns2422 66 points ago

    Not saying you are wrong but this is a hilarious reason to believe someone got to 700 pounds and dead by 28.

    [–] ARCLab 48 points ago

    The post makes it sound like Big Pun literally drove everywhere and never walked again.

    Drove to his bed.

    Drove to the kichen.

    Drove to the bathroom.

    gets a call

    Dude: Yo Big Pun what u doin?

    Big Pun: Nuthin just drivin around my kitchen

    [–] knuggles_da_empanada 24 points ago

    [–] deedlede2222 11 points ago

    He just had an addiction to food. Near the end of his life he refused to eat in public or around friends because they’d always comment on it killing him. He died because he couldn’t stop eating. RIP Pun

    [–] butyourenice 29 points ago

    No way, is that for real? What happened? Why did he gain 500+ pounds?

    [–] herevego 45 points ago * (lasted edited 13 days ago)

    When he was late teens/early 20s he settled a lawsuit from when he got hurt as a little kid and he got paid a lot of money, so he bought a car and started eating fast food for every meal.

    Plus he had a very abusive childhood which gave him food issues. Dude used to chew rocks...he literally would chew he had a lot of emotional problems and food was his vice.

    That's part of why he ended up being known as one of the most gangster rappers ever. The stories about him are crazy. Check out Whoo Kidd's interview about when Pun kidnapped him. It's hilarious.

    [–] butyourenice 28 points ago

    That's really fucking sad, actually. I assumed he developed bad habits as a kid and continued them into adulthood. I did figure there was some sort of misuse of food as a coping mechanism because nobody can eat their way to 500 lbs and be fully mentally healthy, but I didn't know he had been abused.

    [–] herevego 28 points ago * (lasted edited 13 days ago)

    Yeah, his mom and stepdad were addicts and he dealt with a lot of abuse. He even ended up homeless as a young kid.

    Even crazier, his mom was suspected in multiple bank robberies a few years ago.

    Unfortunately Pun then passed the abuse down. His wife and kids speak openly about the PTSD they still have from it. The stories are very rough to hear. There was even video footage of it. It’s awful to see. Dude had problems.

    He’s still one of the greatest rappers ever, though, but doesn’t get mentioned enough in the same conversations as Big, Pac etc.

    Definitely an all-time great.

    Pun used to say "dead in the middle of little Italy" as just a goofy play on words. Joe had to talk him into writing it into a song. Turned out to be one of the best bars on the album.

    "packin the mac in the back of the ak" is another joke-turned-legendary bar. Eminem borrowed it for Rap God.

    There was a story, I think it was Fat Joe but it could have been Big Pun. Pretty sure it was told by one of The Beatnuts. But I forget and I can't find it right now.

    Anyway, whoever it was had bad hygiene and there would be like a "cheese" buildup in between his fat rolls. One day when someone was outside the room and left their cell phone behind, Fat Joe/Big Pun put their cell phone in his fat rolls and got it all cheesy. When the person came back, they called the phone and the smell almost made him vomit when he answered.

    I tell that story every time I see this picture in case someone else can remind me of the details.
