Fat Joe Admits Lil Wayne Is The Best Artist He’s Seen In The Studio
When asked who they think is the best at anything, artists never want to appear as if they’re picking one of their colleagues above the other. However, Fat Joe took a chance during his recent appearance on The Shop: Uninterrupted. Along with guests Don Lemon and Amy Schumer, as well as the show’s writers, the rapper paid a visit to the HBO series. Joe isn’t afraid to express himself, so he was asked who he believed were the greatest of the artists he’s seen in the studio.
“I don’t want nobody to kill me, but the best…Lil Wayne,” he stated without hesitation. “Wayne taught me so, what happens is, Lil Wayne took up from where Tupac was, he was putting out two albums a year. This guy was never in the club, he was the No. 1 artist in the world.”
“He was just in that studio, in that hit factory, in that studio,” Joe added. “So, I was privy to being there with Wayne ’cause I live in Miami and this guy, he would just get a beat, and the guy starts sparing with the speaker.” It was something the Bronx rapper had never seen before. Someone asked him to explain what that meant.
“He’s in a little room and there’s big, giant speakers, and he’s just there like, staring at the speaker,” Joe stated. “He goes in the booth, ‘I am a beast, feed me Hip Hop, feed me…’ I was like holy f*ck. This guy took the record. He’s a beast!”
