Fat Joe’s time in the Rap game goes back to the early 90s, and over the decades the Bronx rapper has worked with a number of notable names including Diddy, Busta Rhymes, Lil Wayne, and many more.
Now, Joe has revealed that he allegedly started recording an album together with The Notorious B.I.G. before the late legend’s passing, which just eclipsed the 24-year mark on Tuesday (March 9).
The New York native said they had been in the lab and got a few songs in – recording Tupac disses that never ended up seeing the light of day.
You know I say stuff, Tim, and they always say I lie or I say too much. You know I worked on an album with Biggie? We cut about five songs together. He was like, ‘You the Latino don, I’m the Black don.’ And we was in that studio going crazy. It’s verified by Puff Daddy and everybody. I’ma keep it real – at the time, we were dissing Tupac a lot and all that and so that should have never seen the light of day. Which is respectfully so, because you know they both passed on. But yeah, I worked with the B.I.G. for real.Fat Joe
The discussion came a little over a week after “Biggie: I Got A Story To Tell,” a documentary that reflected on the late rapper’s life, was released on Netflix.
