In an interview, Fat Joe disassociated himself from fellow New York rapper, Tekashi 6ix9ine.
The Bronx rapper said, “I thought he was a nice guy, and now he can’t be my friend, he can’t come around me ever again,” said Joe. “Those are rules. He crossed that line. I’m keeping it a buck, I pray for people who cross that line — when they talk to the police and they snitch, I pray for them. Yo, we can’t be cool, you over there…please stay away from me, I’d die before you see me in the picture with Tekashi 6ix9ine.”
Fat Joe can’t get over the snitching and sided with Bobby Shmurda after he also blasted 6ix9ine. “Now Bobby Shmurda, I think I’m gonna walk around with a Bobby Shmurda jersey for keeping it real, I’m old school. I’m ready to make a fuckin’ Bobby Shmurda tattoo on my ass. I never knew I loved him so much.”
Back in 2018 on his Tidal podcast, Joe warned 6ix9ine that he could be looking at prison if he didn’t stop doing dirt in the streets. Fat Joe was right!
Tekashi is currently locked up and pleaded guilty to nine counts of racketeering, firearms offenses and drug trafficking.
