#Fat Joe Defends Copping Donald Trump Sneakers

Fat Joe is a well-known sneakerhead, and he has now made a case for himself after purchasing a pair of Donald Trump’s new shoes.

During an Instagram Live stream on Monday (February 26), the “Lean Back” hitmaker insisted that works of art stand by themselves despite the politics of the people behind them. According to him, it’s no different with the former president, who he also openly disavowed.

“If you collect art, do you really know what [Jean-Michel] Basquiat was into?” he began. “Do you know what Andy Warhol was into? Any of these artists that you was into? You love the art, so you get it. I guess they separate art from the person.

“Now, me as a sneaker collector, I had to get my hand on the Trumps […] But listen, I have thousands and thousands and thousands of pairs of sneakers. When everybody flipped on Kanye [West], I went and bought the two most exclusive Kanyes ever.”

He then clarified: “Once again, I’m not a Trumper. I dislike Trump. I’m not voting for him — not now, not never — but I’m a sneaker collector into the art.”

Joey Crack has been a footwear enthusiast for quite some time now, and his latest purchase isn’t even the first time this interest crossed over into politics.

Last year, the New York City native began giving out pairs of his Nike Air Force 1 x Terror Squad collaboration like candy, and he even pulled up on former President Bill Clinton to bless him with the new kicks.

In September, the 53-year-old attended a Clinton Foundation event where he had the opportunity to lace the Democrat with the official Terror Squad Nikes and profess his admiration for the politician as well.

“He’s an honorary member of the [Terror] Squad,” Joe joked while handing over the sneakers. “But 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.

“These are cool, oh wow,” Clinton said in amazement.
