Fat Joe

Advice: Record like Tupac.
XXL: How has hip-hop changed since your freshman year, 1993?
Fat Joe: It’s no longer about camaraderie. When I first came in the game, people were working with each other, no money involved. It was just about the music. Now it’s more separated. It was better before. Money and ego got involved, and people started thinking they bigger than life, they bigger than music. As long as you love music and you work hard, making great music, the money gonna come.

But it’s harder to make money these days.
Everything’s faster now. Lil Wayne... Tupac did it like that. We’re still hearing new ’Pac records. Wayne works like a slave, and he’s one of the richest niggas in the game. The whole industry falling down, and this nigga making money. Muthafuckas are living in that muthafuckin’ studio now. Now everyone knows, If I want to be more relevant, I gotta work like that. We was much lazier back in the days. Rakim was the hottest nigga out and would drop one album every three or four years, [and then] chill, relax in the sun. And that was normal!
