We know every artist was doing the most in terms of chains, cars and clothes in the early 2000s. In a recent interview with Elliott Wilson for Tidal’s “CRWN” series, Fat Joe revealed about the time he got carried away with flexing too much, leaving him broke.
“I made so much money that I was going to the bank every f****** day to get 50,000 in cash,” he said. “Every n**** in my crew—30 n****s in the Bronx—has white f****** Cadillac trucks with TS chains on.”
Then, one day, things did not look so bright for Joe. “So I go in there one day and the lady goes, ‘Mr. Joe, there must be something wrong. There’s no money in your bank account.'” Joe then said, “my asshole got this tight, my n****… like the cartoons birds is going around your f****** head.”
Joe then continued saying how he made sure to ask everyone that owed him money for his money back. He even talked about the time one unnamed DJ was aggressively targeted for $5,000 because he owed Joe the money.
