LINK: Cuban Link Interview About Fat Joe

In a new interview with Si Entertainment, former Terror Squad rapper Cuban Link goes in depth about his relationship with Fat Joe, being blackballed from radio and his memories about Pun. But most interestingly, he explains his recent song “You’re Not Hood,” where he dissed not only Joe but Rick Ross and DJ Khaled (listen to the song HERE). He also says that Fat Joe has been using ghostwriters for the last 10 years. Check out this excerpt:

Si Ent.: What was the last thing you and Pun spoke about before his passing?
CL: It was a business conversation about Fat Joe being greedy; he didn’t want to break bread with Pun. Big Pun was ghostwriting for Fat Joe and told Joe let’s write up a contract. Because [on] the first Terror Squad album Fat Joe got [a] $15,000 bonus and kept it to himself, he didn’t give Pun any percentage of that. So that’s how appreciative Fat Joe is towards his people.

Si Ent.: But why did you diss DJ Khaled and Rick Ross on your song “You’re Not Hood?”
CL: There’s a lot of personal s**t involved, it was the situation after Pun died where the biz wasn’t going good for any of us ‘cause I guess we were depressed. And s**t was just numb then. Fat Joe had a fallin’ out with Atlantic at the time. Then one night we were chillin’ at the club after we had parted ways and Fat Joe took a swing at me. I got up, rocked his boat backwards then security came and that’s pretty much what sparked everything. But he’s a f****t because he’ll lock a lot people out the game by talking s**t about them, just because he don’t like them. And he ain’t wrote a rhyme in the past 10 years, he’s got nothing but ghostwriters. To me it’s about being humble in the game and Fat Joe ain’t humble. And I ain’t dissin’ on Rick Ross just because he’s rolling with Fat Joe. Rick Ross got on a track like a year ago and said something’ about me! DJ Khaled and me used to be cool, but when Fat Joe and I started beefing he went on Fat Joe’s side. But I’m not hating I just want to expose him for who he really is, ‘cause he ain’t “so hood.” He’s rolling with Terror Squad and he thinks he’s gangsta, but he’s not.

      yo finally!! Finally people are going to see what the f%*k I’ve been tryin’ to say for the past however long. I knew that fat fake was a jack ass rapper! It surprises me that he had ghostwriters though, they ought to be drag’d out in the street and whupped on cause Fat Joe ain’t never been hittin’, NEVER! I wish that was Joe that Pun was pistol whippin in that video instead of his lady but oh well.

    • http://www.sitv.com longbeach

      Two words “Fuck Joe”!

      And Two more for Khaled “Fucking Faggot”!

  • http://www.first.com First

    Cuban Link is too ill to not have a legit career at this point. Back in the day, he was damn near equal to Pun in my opinion when it comes to skills.

  • DETROIT

    it’s sad to see niggas dry snitchen cuz they broke. If joe was such a bitch, how was cuban under his umbrella for years? what, he never noticed until now? I’m gettin sick of hearing disgruntled rappers “EXPOSE” niggas they were suckin off years ago. So what if fat joe has a ghost writer, how does that effect cuban? We need more real men in hip hop. 50 is responsible for this current generation of sensitive thug rappers aka bitch ass niggas! this shit ain’t cool, it’s rediculous! DO YOU CUBAN, and keep the next niggas name out ya mouth!

    • joe

      who the fuck is cuban?

  • DTRIP

    Fat Hoe is wack anyway…Cuban is hotter than Joe lyrically…I believe Link is tellin the truth..and since when is hip hop about money? last I heard it was about makin good music…as far as the 50 reference…that made no sense except for the fact you hatin on him and he made his own way…you said keep names out your mouth then you start talkin about some shit that don’t have nothing to do with the conversation…anyway…Fat Hoe rode Puns dick to the limelight…and Cuban wasn’t under his umbrella for years…he was basically out close to right after Pun died…

    hey Detroit, if you don’t have a problem with ghostwriters then you don’t understand music at all dogg…YOU AND PEOPLE WITH THAT SAME VIEW are the reason hip hop is where it’s at right now…wack as fuck with a couple of good MCs

    Man I think Cuban is telling the truth 2. Fat Joe is the type of dude who wants the lime light all 2 himself. If u think I’m lying, think about this. How long has it been since Pun died??? About ten years. When is the last time you heard about a new young talent being signed to Terror Squad??? …………….. I mean think about it. He has a label and he has not signed any one. The only person to drop a solo album on terror since pun died besides Joe is Remy ma and she is a female. That nigga Joe is on some real hoe shit.

    Fucc u, fucc u, u cool, I’m out.

    Mayne CUBAN LINK is da truth mayne dat Fat Fuck is a snitch bitch ass nigga Cuban that nigga is reallll!!!!!!!

  • CHICAGO “G”

    It sounds like Cuban trying to position himself to get a G-Unit deal because he knows that joe is an adversary of 50 and if he keeps going at Joe, 50 cent might take notice and sign him just to go at joe and joe would really hate that, but lets see if it works.

    • EReal

      HUH?

  • Gin Joint Jukebox

    If Fat Joe’s shit is being ghost-written he ought to find some better writers ’cause everything he’s released in the past five years has been whack.

  • nellz

    I dunno about whack…he on point when he don’t sound southern

  • rockbeat

    Cuban was a member of terror squad and everybody know’s when pun died there was a silence in the hispanic culture as well as the terror squad……….pun was terror squad’s angle with out him there was no terror in the squad..but as far as cuban in the fat joe beef…i feel cuban has a right to get things off his chest…cuban link is nice and has hits that will ring for decades as well as joe but if what he saying about fat joe being greedy over money is true thats fucked up because not only did he loose friends he loosing his respect from the fans r.i.p pun

  • g-money

    WOW!!!! niggas will say anything 2 get some pub….Pun would of came out wit that shit his self….damn it reggie hammond!!!!!!!

  • King David

    Who is the Terror Squad these days anyway?

  • nellz

    I wonder who ghostwrote the song about his moms on his last album?

  • yaboy1

    fat joe a bitch…lol

  • mike

    Cuban Pink is a bitchass niggah. he need to just sit down somewhere,or better yet, make an album with Remy man, and call it the what could have been album. Cuban sounds like a sucker, and that is why the niggah got touched. Why he not telling on how he fucked Big Puns wife, and that is the reason he got ripped?

  • http://www.picturemedia.co.za I RUN THIS

    …lmao..WE DONT BELIEVE YOU,YOU NEED MORE PEOPLE..LOL

    Dude is obviously hating, misrable and depressed.I mean his timing is perfect, “let me discredit them before they put out their new albums”…I mean why didnt he say all this shit years ago?..Any who cares anyway.All i know is that im gonna buy both Rick Ross and fat Joe’s albums.

    This guy must go tell this shit to someone that cares,he’s must go do an interview on 50′s new site.

  • real talk

    i dont think fat joe has a ghost writer every song, but i could see him needing assistance with the way he changes styles so much. I knew wayne wrote 300 brolic, thats a givin. fat joe seems greedy, i mean he does some smart buissness descisions but this dude cant rap for beans. But i guess he shining if you compare him to most rappers, he on this site every other post.

  • dat nigga

    yo for the nigga mike

    fuck bitch ass niggaz ..get money!!!!

  • B.L.A.H.MASTER

    listen! if this weak ass dude was any kind of hot radio would play him, he has been complaining about fat joe getting him black balled in the industry for like 3-4 years now, do you homey stop blaming other people for your shortcomings, as for what the last conversation he had with pun was about he could say anything cause pun aint here to verify it, i’m sure he wasn’t telling pun he was gonna smash his wifey 1st chance he got, he must have something new coming out so he is trying to amp shit, 1st the diss track now a interview with a washed up rapper, make good music motherfuckers and let that tell your story everything else is propaganda

    fat joe been in the game longer than half the cats that listen to hip hop, pun was TS if he did write for joe, im sure its nothing different from what g unit and the roc have been doing for years.

  • Ali

    man….iono if this is true but i never liked Fat Joe….i guess with a rapper tha only thing u hafta respect no matter how much u hate em is tha fact that he writes his own shit….Fat Joe couldnt even do that lol and he still sucks

  • fireforreal

    Cuban link hands down will murder fat joe but just because joe sells more records he feels he’s better than him so in a way he’s just like 50.He calls 50 out on how he has money and alot of sells but he’s still garbage but Joe is garbage and knows in his heart he did Cuban wrong because he didn’t want anyone to shine but him after pun died.

    First off fam…Link was nice with the mic, but hasn’t really dropped nothing in a minute. The whole coming out now to say something about joe is a little to late I think on his part to expose someone. The reference my man made about pac running to the studio to make a song about being shot 5 times…..when your being truthful or artistic about your life thats what you do. On the real Pac was one of the few niggas that could be in the hood at the parties and kickin it with regular everyday people so don’t get it twisted. Because 99% of the bitch boys in the game now are scared to be or can’t be in the hood because of things they have lied about or nothing about is their fault man. But do ya research a lot of these cats have nick names for things that have nothing to do with them being real streat. Joey Crack got his nick name for sagging and his ass crack showing not for the crack game son. This is why the game is struggling… a bunch of foogazzie niggas in the game…

    • Afi K. James

      I Have neither respect for these two artists, fat hoe is a bitch and a disaster and cuban is now a professional neoconserative and gay-unit ain’t gonna save you son, because game single handedly destroyed that brand and took them apart, I’ll be glad once this current trash is over, we’ve lost in a major way big time.

      Thank God there’s another hispanic rapper that’s better than both of these bitchasses

    Cuban Link and 50 should do a song together since cuban link try to be 50 anyways and i think that could finally eliminate fat joe but the track will need remy ma on there to.

    • Afi K. James

      Not this time, joe would hire the game, lil him and GZA of Wu-Tang to finish gay-unit off for good.

      So it’s either way.

      But otherwise who cares, no wonder this genre’s is heading at a disastrous rate, it’s almost dead.

    Cuban Link is a one helleva MC and Lyricist. It’s a shame how rappers like Link were learning under 2 legends like Big Pun and Fat Joe (He’s been around when I was just in 2nd Grade). A lot of artists keep on exposing other artists and it shouldn’t be that way. Joe however must have some issues handling his label. First, Remy Ma and now Cuban Link. Its the nature of the business that everyone is out for self and don’t care about loyalties cause people on the inside (of the industry)
    feel they can careless about others. It’s just a shame Pun is seeing this from upstairs. That’s not just the nature of the business, Its the nature
    of the beast.

    • Afi K. James

      Cuban maybe one hell of a good MC, But he’s also an idiotic neocon who needs to be removed from the hip-hop game, he never contributed anything new to the game, except for big pun and buck 50.

      Immortal Technique is the real truth.
