Did Papoose really beat up Fat Joe?

Never pick a fight with a man who buys his ink by the barrel.

-Mark Twain (right?)

You know what would suck balls? If you and your crew went to beat the shit out of a guy, but instead of that happening, the guy ended up punching you in the face twice, and then 50 Cent posted a story about it on his blog for the world to laugh at you.

Supposedly, this is what happened to Fat Joe this weekend, but I’m not sure if I’m buying it, for a few reasons.

The first and most obvious reason we shouldn’t necessarily believe any of this, is that the main place it’s being reported is Fiddy Cent’s social networking site ThisIsFiddy. And you know Fiddy Cent and Fat Joe stay beefing with one another.

A few weeks ago, ThisIsFiddy posted a cover of Hip-Hop Weekly, in which Benzino suggests that he ran up in Fat Joe’s wife, but that turned out to be BS. (Or so Fat Joe is claiming.) So what’s there to suggest that this isn’t as well?

However, where as the Benzino’s Confessions incident turned out to be mostly BS, in that there was no such issue of Hip-Hop Weekly, I’m assuming there is some truth to this incident, in that there actually was a confrontation.

It probably just didn’t go down the way Fiddy is claiming.

Supposedly, Fat Joe was pissed off about the fact that Papoose was on a radio show where Fiddy was talking shit about him – not that Papoose actually said anything about Fat Joe, just that he was on the show. Which sounds like some typical, petty rapper bullshit, and hence is entirely believable.

So Fat Joe and nine of his best friends were gonna go have a talk with Papoose, in a motherfucking Holiday Inn, in North Carolina, before one of these god-awful LCD rap package tours.

To hear ThisIsFiddy tell it, Fat Joe had Cassidy set Papoose up. Or rather, Fat Joe and his crew just so happened to bust into Cassidy’s room not too long after Cassidy had talked Papoose into coming down there to have some important discussion.

At which point Fat Joe was like, “I hear you had a problem with me.” To which Papoose was like, “No, I heard you were the one with the problem.” And then Papoose punched Fat Joe in the face twice, and then the Holiday Inn broke the shit up until the police could get there.

Um, yeah.

Again, I doubt necessarily doubt that this part of the story took place in some form or another, but here’s a few issues I have with Fiddy Cent’s version of the events.

First of all, what’s Cassidy have to do with this incident? Why would Fat Joe need Cassidy to set Papoose up like that, and why would Cassidy even agree to some shit like that? How come Fat Joe couldn’t just go up to Papoose’s room and beat him up there?

It seems likely to me that Fiddy just inserted Cassidy, who also happens to be on this tour, into this story, because he doesn’t like Cassidy, probably because he’s insecure about the fact that Cassidy’s a superior rapper. (For what it’s worth.)

Also, special inside sources (perhaps with the Chinese Secret Police) told Miss Info that Cassidy didn’t have shit to do with this. This shit took place on a floor where a bunch of people were staying, besides just Cassidy.

Another issue I’d have with Fiddy’s version of the events has to do with logistics. Namely, how in the fuck did Fat Joe (they don’t call him fat for no reason) show up with nine people (or five or whatever), but the only thing that happened was that Fat Joe got punched in the face twice?

Papoose does look kinda skinny and otherworldly, but I’m at a loss for how he could even get away with some shit like that without one of Fat Joe’s goons grabbing him and beating the shit out of him. Is he a ninja?

Again, it seems more likely that Fat Joe’s crew roughed up Papoose and his DJ (who may or may not have been taken to a hospital), or maybe they all kinda roughed up each other.

Or maybe there was no physical altercation. If you notice, there doesn’t seem to be any police record of this incident, despite the there were a few famous rappers involved. And despite the fact that the police were called to the scene, even in Fiddy’s version of the events.

For all we know, Fiddy could just be making this shit up. Either way, I’d say it’s Fiddy who emerges victorious in all this. Not Papoose, or Fat Joe. His site was the one that broke the story, so his version has become the official story. By the time the real story ever emerges, if it ever does, probably no one will even give a shit.

Meanwhile, Fiddy was probably off somewhere this weekend balls deep in some stripper. I wonder if he even has any input into ThisIsFiddy, or if he just pays the same African that does Media Take Out to come up with this shit.

    Joey crack maybe a lot of things but ask Cuban links if he’s a bitch:) aint no Ronnie Devoes looking 150 pound kid gonna punch Joey in the grill and walk out of a hotel room with all his facilities. I dont buy that unless it’s floyd mayweather:) as for 50 he needs to grow the fuck up, he must have an album coming out soon and needs the publicity since Kanye ran up in like a cheap hooker last album.

    • EReal

      Just so you know, it wasnt 50 that wrote that or posted it. It wasn’t even G-Unit promotions. Anyone thats a member of that site can post up “news” or a “blog”, ect.

      Fat Joe lost for sending Cease and Desist from his lawyers to all the blogs n sites posting the pic and or story.

  • young p

    All them niggas is stupid. Trap or die get money bitches

  • cold war kid

    that ninja line was classic

  • Pierzy

    I completely agree that the story (or at least this version of the story) is total bullshit. Although, it does seem that Papoose is so angry about never getting an album put out that he needs to punch everyone – Prodigy, Fat Joe, the Easter Bunny like in “Mallrats” etc…

    Also, I highly doubt that 50 is sitting by a computer making up gossip stories a la Perez Hilton but it wouldn’t surprise me if he’s sent out a memo saying some shit like “Make any and all news about Fat Joe, NaS and Ghostface make them look terrible.”

    • bobby

      that wasn’t papoose asshole…that was saigon that punched prodigy in the face…

  • fred

    papoose at 150 punch fat joe 300+ pounds in the face and the fight breaks up nah papoose would have been vamoose if this were true!
    50 is just being 50!

    • mask

      50 just a gossip girl!

  • og bobby j

    I do know fat joe or papoose as far as hand skills, but shere mass favors the TS cat. I couldnt careless, but why would pap be fighting for 50? maybe he is on the payroll…..who cares…i would like to see rapper boxing, where all these big ,mouth pussies can duke it out on pay per view.

  • Tyler

    but I’m at a loss for how he could even get away with some shit like that without one of Fat Joe’s goons grabbing him and beating the shit out of him. Is he a ninja?
    Huh yea’. He looks like a ninja turtle, don’t U agree? 50 also had sum really good photo shopped pics up of Joey Crack’s grill all mash in which was a nice touch even tho’ shit ain’t true well not the way 50 has painted. But Yea’ U gotta give it to 50, if you had a shitload of money and a bunch of dumb goons around that would do anything 4 U wouldn’t U be doing all types of shit 2 the people that U really hate? Fifty 3 Joey Crack 0
    Why don’t one of these dudes spice shit up and kill the other dude. That’s Hip Hop.

  • Mr.215

    It’s crazy the way that these dudes just let 50 manipulate them. He had Pap on the radio goin at Max B then he follows up with Uncle Murda talkin shit about Pap. Then fat joe and Pap fight??? These dudes is really pawns.

  • Ryan

    I think it’s hilarious, I hope Fat Joe did get cracked in the mouth, maybe he’d come to his senses and realize that he’s been a joke for almost a decade since he left the DITC camp.

    • WillNice

      A YO First of all joe left ditc and moved on to bigger things like brining out pun and obtaining platnum records and a LOT OF PAPER TO GO WIT IT..NOW IF YOU ASK ME ,PAPOOSE LOST

  • ri067953

    Yo, since when does 50 not spew bullshit to grab headlines and attention. This is school yard shit and makes these fools look like petty bitches. Who beat up who? Who gives a fuck, I gotta pay gas prices that are close to $4.00 a gallon which is my beef.

    • M

      “Yo, since when does 50 not spew bullshit to grab headlines and attention.”

      Somebody needs to let me write for 50′s blog. The story would have been better if 50 came up on the floor with two .45′s and sprayed the scene, saving Pap, and leaving Crack alive to teach him a lesson.

  • b-ease

    I’m still debating what’s potentially funnier: this actually happening or 50 making it up? Both hilarious, yet for completely different reasons…

  • Allen_J

  • NAWLEDGE

    Cosign this whole blog. Bitchy Cent is just makin up some bullshit to get hyped up and make Joe look bad. Make your money and stop worryin about the next nigga. Shit is pathetic Fif. And like Bol said, what the hell does Cassidy have to do with ANY of this?

    “Meanwhile, Fiddy was probably off somewhere this weekend balls deep in some stripper. I wonder if he even has any input into ThisIsFiddy, or if he just pays the same African that does Media Take Out to come up with this shit.”

    I WOULD HAVE TO SAY BOTH. U CAN’T TRUST THISISCURTIS OR CURTIS HIMSELF FOR DAT MATTER.

    ITS GOOD TO C U R HATING AND PRESSING ON THE RIGHT PPL BOL. U’RE 3 FOR 3 NOW. KEEP IT UP.

  • The News

    A couple of years back, before Cassidy went to prison, he had a video out where he dissed the G-Unit. The name of the song was “B-Boy Stance”. In the video he portrays Fiddy as a stripper. Shortly after the video’s release Cassidy went to prison. The song was produced by Swizz Beats. Swizz’s association with Cassidy may have led to the alleged confrontation between Swizz and Tony Yayo at the Busta Rhymes video shoot for “Touch It” remix, where Busta’s bodyguard was killed. Papoose and Lloyd Banks were also on the Touch It video. I believe somewhere therein lies a connection.

  • cHocolate Rain

    Joey got exposed….Fiddy just toyin with these lames

    get money…

  • mark givens

    MediaTakeout has a pic up now showing a seriously Fucked up Fat Joe! Whassup with that? Maybe the story is true!!!

  • Stonyman

    IF Papoose was a ninja no one would have seen his ass punch fat joe. I mean come on when is the last time you saw even saw a ninja. Thus Papoose isn’t a ninja.

  • http://incilin.blogspot.com Incilin

    I don’t know if Mark Twain actually said that, but Judge Phelan certainly said it earlier this season in the The Wire.

    But the quote I would have used is:
    “I’m like Fat Joe’s bones, I move crack” – Papoose

  • Ali

    one thing’s for sure…Cassidy is a superior rapper than 50 lol

  • Christopher

    YOOO

  • supernupe

    The CIAA tournament was held right here in Charlotte, NC and yes the story is true as fiddy is calling it but, I see that Fat Joes eye is not as bad as first told… either way truth be told Papoose got off

  • Penelope Rodriguez

    I don’t believe that Pap punched Fat Joe. I need to see some photos or a youtube video or something for me to believe that sh*t. What’s even more f*cked up is that Cassidy’s name was brought up in this “mess”. He probably wasn’t even near those motherf*ckers anyway.

    Otherwise, 50′s probably making this sh*t up, and it’s lame for him to do this. He got money. He should just leave this dudes alone.

  • TRIZZYLE ON YA BREEZY

    THE ONLY THING THAT GOT THE UPPER HAND IS 50′S TEETH SON. 50 BEEN SUCKIN TOO HARD THATS WHY HE HAD THE GAP IN THE FIRST PLACE. SUCKIN OFF QUEENS NIGGAS RIGHT AND LEFT. THAT WHY THEY CALL HIM BOO BOO CUZ HIS BREATH SMELLS LIKE SHIT FROM ALL THAT BLOWIN AND SUCKIN…YOU FAGGOTS RESPECT THE ONE WHO GOT SHOT BUT LIKE THE GOD HOVA JAY SAID I RESPECT THE SHOOTER NIGGA. NOBODY LAID A FINGER ON FAT JOE AND 50 AINT NOWHERE TO BE FOUND AS USUAL. PAPOOSE IS ASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS GARBAGE HOMEY. FUCKIN GEICO LIZARD.

  • yoprince

    fifty is really rebuilding his brand right now..

  • Sway-z

    Two points

    1, Joe would beat the shit outta Papoose, period. Say what you want about his rappin, Joe been in more than one physical altercation with rap niggas, and I’m talkin on some back alley knuckle up shit.

    2. 50 ain’t sitting at no damn computer wasting time with this shit, he don’t personally run the website, and I’m sure he got other shit to do than sit around making up stories about fuckin fat joe…

  • T-GHETTO ENTERTAINMENT

    Why would Papoose want to pick a fight with Fat Joe? And why would Fat Joe call Papoose whack? Why are these guys claiming that they’re a “Grown Ass Man” when they act like a bunch of Teenagers? And about Fat Joe, he’s a smart dude, I just have to say that. Fat Joe is smart. Papoose is a lyricist, but if they decline if they’re Teenagers, then keep your claims the truth. We don’t no old heads getting on the radio and disrespecting the both of yall.

  • FAT JOE (FAN)

    Fat Joe is the releast rapper alive and my favorite and he inspired me to start raping i own every cd. Sure 50 Cent can make a good song but hes a dick.
