Fat Joe's a wonderful storyteller because he gets so animated and descriptive. In our interview, we fell onto the subject of "boombap rap" and that's when I asked him about Joey BadA$$. The minute Fat Joe heard his name, his eyes lit up and says that he tried to sign him over a year ago. The deal didn't happen but Joe still has nothing but respect for Joey BadA$$.
We also talked about his future in film, how to properly pronounce, "buffet," and what the film, Fresh meant to him when it dropped in the 90s. Get comfortable, this interview is good.
[Tip: Jump to the 4:36 mark for Joey Bada$$]
