With almost 30 years in the rap game under his belt, Fat Joe has racked up his fair share of collaborations. But when it comes to making magic in the studio, there’s one rapper who reigns supreme for Joey Crack.
Fat Joe, who has worked with Wayne on tracks such as “Make It Rain” and “About All That,” then recalled a specific studio session where the New Orleans legend recorded his show-stealing verse on DJ Khaled’s 2007 hit “We Takin’ Over,” and being blown away by his energy, creativity and confidence in the booth.
“I was privy to be in there with Wayne ’cause I live in Miami and this guy… He would just get a beat and the guy starts sparring with the speaker! I’ve never seen no shit like this,” he continued. “He’s in a little room and these big giant speakers and he’s staring at the speaker. He goes in the booth, ‘I am a beast/Feed me Hip Hop.’ I was like, ‘Holy fuck! This guy took the record!’ He’s a beast.”
