Fat Boys Rapper

I Dropped 175 Pounds!!!

9/18/2011 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0915_prince_markie_dee_wre_EXFat Boys rapper Prince Markie Dee ain't so fat anymore -- because TMZ has learned, he actually dropped SERIOUS weight ... all thanks to his kids.

43-year-old Prince says he's lost 175 pounds in the last six years ... down from 450 (left) -- telling us, "I am not young anymore. I cant go eat a couple of Big Macs a day and not worry about it. I have to watch what I eat and care about my diet. I have kids to live for."

Prince -- real name Mark Morales -- says he's also planning a huge comeback after a 12-year hiatus ... and has even signed with a label called Uncle Louie Music Group to put out an album.

Prince says his former Fat Boys pal Kool Rock-Ski (below left) will make a cameo on the record -- and he even plans to throw in some beatbox samples from the late Darren "Buff Love" Robinson (below right) ... who died in 1995 due to a complication from his weight.

Kool Rock-Ski should be the subject of this story because he has really lost much weight and become a fitness fanatic.

Can't wait to hear his next album and his work with Kool Rock-Ski they were one of the best Rap Trio's ever.. RIP Buffy glad to know his beatboxing will be returning to new music as he had more talent with a Big Mac in his hand than all of the modern day rap scene had combined.
