Fat Joe details how phone-call from Eminem saved him from retiring

Legendary rapper Fat Joe may have retired if it was not for Eminem.

In an exclusive interview with Rap-Up magazine, to promote Pepsi’s “Your Wildest Dreams” virtual talent competition, the Bronx legend shared how a call from Detroit legend, Eminem, saved him from forever hanging up the mic.

I really honestly believed that I had retired one million percent. When the G.O.A.T. called, I felt so honored and I was like ‘yo, f**k it, let me hear some beats!.’ Em said you know Joe, you are one of the last ones left. You are making better music now than ever. You can not retire. You can not leave us.” – says Fat Joe

As he previously said, Fat Joe had the chance to sign the Eminem back in the days but passed several times, calling it the “biggest mistake of my whole rap career.”
