Fat Joe has explained why he admitted to lying in “95%” of his lyrics, arguing that he had to speak out for those whose music is being used against them in court. Joe had been discussing his music and Young Thug’s ongoing trial during an interview with Gayle King on CNN.

“I’ve been rapping professionally for 30 years,” Fat Joe, last week. “I’ve lied in almost 95 percent of my songs. I’m being honest. I write like I feel that day. I’m just being creative. You couldn’t build a jail high enough for the lyrics I’ve said on songs, which are all untrue. What I am is a family man, the person who gives back to my community all the time, opens businesses in my community.”

Joe defended the comments while on Instagram Live, on Sunday. In doing so, he described himself as an “elder statesman of Hip-Hop.” “I had to say 95% of what I say is a lie so that they could understand that it’s unfair to try some kids for the rest of their life with sh*t they might have not done,” Joe explained. “None of this sh*t is true. It’s creativity. It’s imagination. Those who know, know. If I say I use my creativity, my imagination in my music, don’t mean I ain’t lived a real f*cking life in the streets.” Check out his latest comments on the matter below.
