Fat Joe Says He Never Thought He'd Appear On A Song With 50 Cent

Fat Joe names his favorite baseball players, says his new show "Off The Bat" will end disconnect between baseball players and fans.

At the top of this year, Hip Hop fans may have been taken aback when former rivals Fat Joe and 50 Cent appeared on DJ Kay Slay’s, “Free Again.” The pair ended their feud almost two years ago at the BET Hip Hop Awards prior to the Chris Lighty tribute, but it was unclear if the two rappers would ever appear on a record together.

When asked about his collab with 50 and DJ Kay Slay during an interview with Complex, Fat Joe expressed his own shock at hearing a track that features both him and the Queens rapper. He then commented on the presence of unity and positivity in today’s Hip Hop.

“I never thought I’d hear a track with 50 Cent and Fat Joe. You would never hear that, right? And it’s great that there’s more unity in Hip Hop. More positivity,” he said.

The Bronx lyricist also spoke on “Off The Bat,” his new MTV show with Melanie Iglesias. On the show, which premieres tonight (April 2), the lives of Major League Baseball players outside of the field are detailed.

“The good folks at MTV contacted me,” Fat Joe said. “And I was like ‘Wow, baseball has been around for so many years as America’s past time.’ But believe it or not, throughout all those years they’ve never had a TV show like this. For years I loved the Yankees, but I never really knew what Reggie Jackson did. I never really knew what Mariano—What was his favorite music or what his hobby was…One thing I learned is that they love, love, love Hip Hop. We tend to think basketball, football, Hip Hop. There’s a big disconnect that we know that this show’s gonna bring together.”

Fat Joe later revealed the names of his favorite baseball players. Among the athletes he named were Thurman Munson, Reggie Jackson, and Derek Jeter.

During an interview with Complex last month, 50 Cent revealed that his beef with Fat Joe and a handful of other artists stemmed from his issues with fellow Queens rapper Ja Rule.

“My issues with Fat Joe. My issues with Jada and the entire LOX. These things came from my Ja Rule issue,” he said. “It came from them trying to help him. I can’t let you help him while I’m destroying him… Everybody gotta get some of this until they leave him alone and he just goes off to be buried.”

    It's not a real collaboration if they didn't record it in the studio together.

      i guess most collabos arent real then because thats just how it goes in 2014. i heard pitbull on howard stern last night saying he doesn't even go to the studios he records in his hotels everywhere he goes and emails songs back and forth to Shakira or whoever.

    Fat Joe n Sheek Louch seemed like they really hated 50 more than any other nigga that dissed him
    • Anonymous
      I dont think Sheek is capable of hatred of another Black man he just disliked the dude that was trying to hurt the careers of his brother for no logical reason other than them appearing on a song with Ja Rule. Thats why its so funny that Eminem put Wayne on his album and Dre jumped on a Ross album and 50 couldnt do shit except take his anger out on Yayo and Banks.

      So Kay Slay put them on a track together and they weren't in the studio, sounds about right

      Sheek was on Hot97 last week and said it was all love for Fiddy.
    • lox n ts
      I know they okay wit him now but at the time joe n sheek seemed to have a real dis-like towards 50 more than just the music. Watch sum the interviews joe really wanted to catch him n knock out his teeth n sheek was callin him a fuckin faggot hiding behind his bodyguards so he couldn't get his hands on him lol
