Hip-hop heavyweight Fat Joe is preparing to unveil a new slimline look - he's been working out every day for the past year.

The LEAN BACK rapper, noted for his huge frame, is now working hard to get himself in shape.

He says, "I'm in the gym, man. Every day, I work out. Every day for the last year. Just getting healthy, man, that's all. Just trying to enjoy what I worked so hard for."

But the star insists he'll always be Fat Joe - even if he slims right down.

He adds, "I'm Fat Joe, and I've still gotta exercise a lot and make sure the food don't catch up with me."
