Fat Joe Salutes Ukrainian Soldiers For Bumping ‘Lean Back’ Amid Russian Conflict


Fat Joe is a man of the people and will do what he can to make sure his fans are always shown some love. The Bronx rap legend did exactly that when a group of Ukrainian soldiers was bumping his music.

On Thursday (March 17), Fat Joe took to his Instagram with a clip of four Ukrainian soldiers fully equipped with gear and armed, riding in a car with Joey Crack’s 2004 hit “Lean Back” blaring through the speakers. The four men are vibing to the song as one of them shows a rifle, presumably heading to a location to fight Russian forces.

“Ukrainian soldiers getting hype to Lean back GOD BLESS,” Fat Joe wrote in the caption.

Hip Hop has weighed in on the conflict between Russia and Ukraine since the war broke out on February 24. Cardi B gave her two cents on the matter, calling on world leaders to think of the people who are really suffering from the conflict.

“Wish these world leaders stop tripping about power and really think about whose really getting affected (citizens) besides the whole world is in a crisis,” she wrote on Twitter. “War,sanctions,invasions should be the last thing these leaders should worry about.”

While some were handling the conflict seriously, others were poking fun at it, such as fans of Chief Keef, who called on him to help prevent World War III. People were creating all types of memes that eventually found its way to Sosa who agreed to help wit a post of his own.

“On the way to Ukraine,” he captioned the post with a gun emoji.
