Fat Joe Details Feeling Abandoned By Nas After Ending His Beef With Jay Z

Back in 2001 when Nas and Jay Z were enthralled in their Rap beef, Fat Joe sided with Nas resulting in tension between Terror Squad and Roc-A-Fella Records. But when the Jay Z-Nas beef was squashed between the two rappers, Fat Joe says he felt abandoned.

“When Nas caught beef with Jay Z, they threw the battery in my back,” the Bronx-bred rapper says in an interview with This Is 50. “Like, ‘We got beef with this man’ and I’m all muscle. So I’m like alright. And I’m moving a certain way and the moral to the story is that there was bad blood between Roc-A-Fella and Terror Squad for a long time and the next thing I know I seen Nas with Jay Z and there was peace. But it left me in the outskirts. He didn’t pick up the phone like, ‘Yo, I’m about to squash this.’ I would’ve told him go get money. I’m all about getting money, so I would’ve told him go get money. Now me and these niggas got beef because I was reppin’ you hard.”

Four years later, Jay Z and Nas ended up uniting on stage at the Continental Airlines Center in New Jersey. The pair also performed together.

Fat Joe says that now he and Jay are good but he does feel like the situation between himself and Nas could’ve been handled differently.

“I felt abandoned,” Fat Joe continues. “Like wow. I was frontin’ nine for a nigga.”

The full Fat Joe interview with This Is 50 is as follows:

Natalie Cole has died at age 65.

Cole, who had struggled with a variety of health issues in recent years, died Thursday night, according to publicist Maureen O’Connor. The cause of death was reportedly congestive heart failure.

A physically weakened Cole, winner of nine Grammy Awards, was forced to cancel a string of concert performances over the last three months after a recurrence of hepatitis C linked to her earlier drug abuse.


The daughter of music icon Nat (King) Cole scored a huge 1991 hit with “Unforgettable” — a virtual duet with her late father. Natalie was just 15 when her father died in 1965, a decade before his daughter launched her own solo recording career.

The album “Unforgettable … With Love” spent five weeks at No. 1 on the pop charts, sold more than 14 million copies worldwide and won six Grammy Awards.

But her career exploded with her 1975 debut album that included the massive hit single “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)” and a pair of Grammys for Best New Artist and Best Female R&B Performance.

Infamous drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who daringly escaped prison on July 11, utilized a tunnel leading from the only “supermax” maximum-security prison in Mexico, where he’d been held. At least that’s the explanation Mexican authorities have given as to how the leader of the Sinaloa cartel escaped prison for the second time.

In the aftermath of the escape, VICE News went to Almoloya de Juarez to inspect the exit of the tunnel that “El Chapo” allegedly used, and spoke with an activist and former inmate of Altiplano prison who claims to have discovered flaws in the authorities’ version of events.
