Fat Joe


Looks like Fat Joe is disgusted with Daddy Yankee’s endorsement of Senator John McCain. The Bronx rapper has in a recent interview with MTV denounced the Reggaeton superstar for supporting the Republican candidate in the run for the Presidency.

Joe even went as far to say that he would quite happily sit down and school Daddy Yankee on the subject of politics as he believed the remarks came from him out “for a look,” or the fact that he is “not educated on politics.”

Joe like many other artists and entertainment stars have all been in Denver for the Democratic Convention which saw Chicago Senator Barack Obama make his speech last night in front of 75,000 people. Obama who made his speech 45 years to the date since Martin Luther King made his ‘I have a dream speech ‘ had the crowd on their feet with his words of unity and change for his country. “America, we cannot turn back,”  Obama said. “We cannot walk alone. At this moment, in this election, we must pledge once more to walk into the future.”

If you were at the Irving Plaza last night watching Game perform were in for a serious treat. The Compton rapper was obviously sending out a few signs with those who accompanied him on stage as he and his Black Wall Street crew celebrated the release of his third album LAX which hit shelves yesterday.

Game was joined by plenty of NY rappers including Jim Jones, Maino, Fat Joe, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah. But surprisingly enough I thought was the presence of Kool Herc who Game brought out on stage at the packed out show. Joe Budden was also in the house and of course so was  the other G Unit member who jumped ship…Young Buck.

Just wouldn’t have been a show if the two out of towners didn’t mention former label mates 50, Banks and Yayo of course. But all in all a good night appeared to be had by all and Buck was quick to tell Joe he had no beef. So I guess 50 was really pulling strings on the Elephant in the Sand mixtape which was only put out a few months back where Buck openly dissed Joey Crack. Hmmm ok Game
