The last time Funk Flex invited someone for a lengthy conversation, Jim Jones gave an emotional interview which prompted Cam’ron (and Joe Budden) to respond in kind. Suffice to say, Fat Joe‘s sit-down with the Hot 97 personality is as entertaining as its predecessor.
Throughout the two-hour conversation Joey Crack gave his life story, speaking on his early days as… well… a goon from the Bronx to a promising rapper making a name for himself on the Apollo circuit. He speaks on being a member of two groups which, tragically, each lost its brightest star (Big L in Diggin’ In The Crates, Big Pun in Terror Squad), sinking into a deep depression following the death of Pun, and how Irv Gotti helped him out of it.
Joe also gets personal about quelling the issues he had with JAY Z and 50 Cent, but while unable to solve the problems between he and Big Pun’s widow and former Terror Squad member Cuban Link. It’s a densely interesting interview.
UPDATE: On top of Joey’s interview with Flex, he also sat down with Wendy Williams with Remy by his side. During the sit down, Remy had the following to say about her issues with Nicki.
“It wasn’t necessarily the little subliminal stuff on records because I didn’t care,” Remy said. “I don’t care about records. I’d spoken to her before like, ‘Whatever you say, you supposed to say you the best and none of y’all better than me.’ It was the behind-the-scenes things that you people will never know about, as far as, trying to keep me off of red carpets, trying to make sure awards don’t go to me or she’s not going to be in attendance, or trying to get people to make bad reports about my album sales, or just anything that I’m doing to make me look less and make her look better. I have a problem. When you’re trying to stop my bag, when you’re trying to stop me from taking care of my children, now, I have a problem with that.”
