Joseph Cartagena, better known as hip hop artist Fat Joe is urging Latinos and African-Americans to vote Democrat in the upcoming presidential election; because the Republicans, who have been in power for eight years, killed his sister.

The heavyweight hip hop star of Puerto Rican and Cuban descent insists poor health services cost his sister her life and he's enthused by Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama's promises for improved health care.

The NY based Terror Squad Entertainment hip hop MC rants, "Every problem the blacks have, the Latinos have. There's two systems of health care: the one for the rich that's really good, then there's the one for the inner city, where they leave ladies in the emergency room unattended for 24 hours until they drop dead.”

"People don''t even check on her hours after she's dead. This is normal stuff. This is what's happening in the U.S." And the death of his sister made him realize just how bad health care in America is.

The hip hop MC tells MTV News, "To me she was murdered by doctors. She was having a baby in the Bronx, and they gave her an epidural - a normal procedure that was supposed to numb her from the waist down. They numbed her from the waist up, because they had amateurs learning in the Bronx hospitals. Students murdered my sister in the inner city.”

Fat Joe went on to say "I love what Barack is doing with the heath care system. Once he gets universal health care for everybody, then we gotta step up our system to make it the best in the world."
