Fat Joe Claims They Were Working On A Project With Biggie! Fat Joe has opened up with news about some unreleased Hip Hop tracks. The New York rapper was joined by producer Rashad Ringo Smith On The Fat Joe Show, who shared a snippet of an old Lil Kim and Foxy Brown collaboration. The surprise comes shortly after news Fat Joe shared with the Verzuz and now Triller moguls, Swizz Beatz and Timbaland. The three were sharing about their successes on Biggie Day- marking the anniversary of The Notorious B.I.G.‘s tragic murder at only -years-old, when Fat Joe revealed that he and the late icon were cooking up some new music on a new project before his tragic demise.
Timbaland was the first to share his story about being at the Vibe after-party on that fateful night back in 1997 after speaking with Biggie about a possible collaboration in the future. The producer shared that later, he was in his car just a few cars ahead of Biggie’s when the rapper was fatally shot and killed in Los Angeles. Soon after Timbaland finished detailing his story, Joe made the big announcement.
“You know, I say stuff and they always say I lie or I say too much. You know, I worked on an album with Biggie,” the rapper said. “We cut about five songs together. He was like, ‘You the Latino don, I’m the Black don.’ And we was in that studio going crazy. It’s verified by Puff Daddy and everybody.” Then he mentioned on why these tracks may still be locked away in the vault.
“I’ma keep it real. At the time, we were dissing Tupac a lot and all that,” Continued Fat Joe . “So that should have never seen the light of day, which is respectful, so because, you know, they both passed on, you know. But yeah, I worked with the B.I.G. for real.”
