    He looks indigenous, too, Borinqueño. Green eyes, red beard…

    His wife’s name is Lorena Rios.

    I can’t identify his grandparents yet, as the search is too elusive. What I am sure is that his mother was born on January 3, 1948, while his father was born on September 15, 1935.

    Google “Peter Swartling” he’s an ethnic Swede who looks part black and resembles Fat Joe.

    This guy (Fat Joe) is probably like 75% Euro and the being SSA (Sub-Saharan African) admixture with slight Native.

    Why do people get so offended when Fat Joe says nigga in his music? He was raised in the hood and he’s Latino.
