The South Bronx actor/rapper spoke to VERZUZ‘s Timbaland and Swizz Beatz on Instagram Live to mark the 24th anniversary of The Notorious B.I.G.’s death on March 9, and the three began with telling stories of how they knew the rapper or how he influenced their careers. “You know I say stuff, Tim, and they always say I lie or I say too much,” Fat Joe said. “You know I worked on an album with Biggie? 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. I’ma keep it real – at the time, we were dissing Tupac a lot and all that and so that should have never seen the light of day. Which is respectfully so, because you know they both passed on. But yeah, I worked with the B.I.G. for real.”
