Fat Joe has more words for 50 Cent, who dissed his new LP J.O.S.E. 2 in an internet video posted on Thisis50.com on September 28. However, this time he’s giving praise to the Queens MC.
Fat Joe appeared on Hot 97’s Cipha Sounds and Peter Rosenberg radio show this morning on New York City’s Hot 97 and sarcastically thanked 50 for all the publicity he’s been giving J.O.S.E. 2 which just dropped on Tuesday (October 6).
Feigning sincerity, Fat Joe thanked 50 Cent for bigging him up and helping him out with the promotion that his label didn’t really provide him with. He said that’s he’s very grateful to 50 for recognizing this and doing something about it which, he believes, shows that 50 is truly his number one fan.
Fat Joe’s praise is a stark difference from what he said via his Twitter account just a few days ago: “Tell 50 to get off my D*CK already. He was sick that my album is SO HOT that real music not that wack sh*t him and his clowns are making!!”
50 Cent was recently called out by Fabolous for his role in contributing to the “isolated & crumbled” state of the New York hip-hop scene, although Fab has since said that his words were taken out of context. -Brooklyne Gipson
