Fat Joe Inducted Into White Castle Hall of Fame

Fat Joe (middle) was recently inducted into the White Castle Craver's Hall of Fame.
Fat Joe is officially a Hall of Famer.

No, the Bronx-born rapper and actor won’t be joining Eminem this fall when he is inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame later this fall along with other luminaries from across the music industry.

He has been, however, inducted into White Castle's Cravers Hall of Fame as a Craver in Extremis.

The legendary burger chain, known for its square hamburger sliders, held a surprise ceremony in Joe’s native New York borough on Thursday.

White Castle vice president Jamie Richardson presented the rapper with a plaque commemorating his induction and said the company was proud to be associated with him.

"The Cravers Hall of Fame honors our loyal fans who represent the best of White Castle, and Fat Joe embodies that lifelong dedication," said Richardson. "We share the same values, including family, humility and commitment to the community. We're grateful to have someone such as Fat Joe as an ambassador."

The Cravers Hall of Fame is an exclusive club that White Castle created in 2001 to recognize its most zealous fans, who are affectionately referred to as Cravers.

Joe, who also received word that a booth in the Castle is now known as the "Fat Joe Lean Back Booth," a nod to his 2004 classic song and in his honor, said he appreciated the love from one of his favorite franchises.

"If you're from the Bronx like I'm from the Bronx, the White Castle in my neighborhood was a flagship location,” he said during the ceremony. “I've been coming to White Castle with my aunts, uncles, mother and father, wife and my kids, and that's what it is all about."

The Grammy-nominated artist said his go-to meal at White Castle is a Double Cheese Slider, onion rings and clam strips.

This is just the latest collaboration between Joe and the company. Earlier this year they teamed up to introduce the Spicy Joe Slider and Sloppy Fries to celebrate JOE-nuary as a month dedicated to all things Joe.
