Fat Joe has grown bitter and tired. His career is in the trash, there's no more Terror in the Squad and he's fled The Bronx for Miami.
Acknowledging he can't win his beef with 50 Cent
, Joe has decided to d**k ride Toronto rapper Drake
. The new hot rapper of the moment in the hopes he can claim some kind of sad victory over Fif if Drake has a successful career.
was recently interviewed by Vibe.com
. The subject of Drake's current buzz came up and was compared to 50's pre 'Get Rich Or Die Tryin
This is what Joe "The Groupie
" had to say about that:
“Two very different artists… As far as I’m concerned, [50 Cent] had one hot album, and his first album was a classic and that’s it,” said Joe. “After that everything else was bubble gummed down. So Drake, I think he will outlast 50 Cent
“If you talk about 50 Cent on top really making hot music it didn’t even last two, three, four years
,” Joe added. “Looking at the quality of the music that Drake is making and the different lanes—he wrote that song for Alicia Keys, ‘Unthinkable’—I think we ain’t seen nobody like him yet. I’m still not saying he’s the best in the game ’cause I gotta hear Kanye new album before I make those remarks, but he’s definitely very, very, very impressive.
Notice Joe didn't dare mention his rap career compared to Fif's.
Bottom line 50's sold more than 40 million albums
, is still a worldwide phenomenon as witnessed by the current Before I Self Destruct Tour
and still has more albums to come. While Drake has yet to release an album.
