    Amazing. Best line? “I remember going to garden and being in the nose bleeds… and now I sit on the woods.”

    50′s better no question.

  • Druelz

    @ Tzvi… I thought it was only me who found that to be hilarious !!!

  • rayray

    Don Cartegena! Aw man big up to the whole TS squad. On the real 50 did nothing for the world but make it a worse place. Pun on the other hand he was a blessing…

    F haters who dismiss the TS
    90′s hip hop was on a whole different level to now.

    Des guys have da brain da size of a pea y’all


    “I can’t sleep,” Fat Joe said of all the speculation over where top NBA free agents such as LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh will land. “I been talking to Carmelo [Anthony] since the Puerto Rican Day parade. I been hammering on his head like, ‘We need you.’ He loves the city.

  • Fat Lever

    Fat Joe should worry about convincing Finesse, OC, and Show and AG to team back up with him again to make good music.

    maybe amare could return the favour and help joe release a decent album

  • Fat Joe

    There’s a reason they called upon yours truly to recruit Amar’e Carsares Stoudemire to play for the New York Knicks. I have the divine power to lure anyone to anywhere, call me a snake charmer. I lured Obama to the White House. I lured the Sun to Earth. And I lured YOU to this website. I, Fat Joe, can do anything you please.

    Do not worry about my music career for the moment. When I release said album, I shall lure you to the stores and iTunes to purchase. You don’t have a choice when Fat Joe is involved.

    Be Merry.

  • John Starks

    Yea, Fat Joe has been an undeniable force in my life. He makes the impossible possible As he mentioned, I was at the dinner and we had a great talk about life. Hey Joe next time save some food for everyone. Haha, just messing with you. Thank you for your divinity

  • Fat Joe

    John, my brother! How hast thou been? That dinner was a mighty fine one. I apologize for eating more than my given ration of food, I sometimes get greedy when it comes to my meals. Hence the name “Fat.” Our next outing will be a grand one, dear friend.

  • John Starks

    Yes indeed. NBA store perhaps?

  • Fat Joe

    NBA Store it is. I’ll be picking up LeBron’s new- oh wait, LeBron isn’t changing teams! I’ll keep the same jersey I got 7 YEARS AGO.

  • ciroqobama

    Can someone convince Fat Joe to stop talking and/or rapping? My ears are bleeding. TS is garbage.

  • http://twitter.com/darrellma dma

    The only way Fat Joe will be relevant again is if Pun ghostwrites for him.

  • JMJ

    Fat Joe should return to his day job FULL TIME.

  • edmalhas

    Fat Joe and Amare have a similarity. Both careers are taking or gonna tank soon in NY. lol

  • kh

    Who is Straham?

  • deano

    hip hop = delusional infantile 40 year olds……and this is coming from someone who used to be a die-hard fan of the music and culture

  • http://www.slamonline.com riggs

    if you were a die-hard fan of the music and culture then you would know that your comment is a stupid one. How about you listen to more people than just the ones on the radio?

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    Capital Punishment>any rap album in the last 5 years..

  • cipe

    wtf,he bring amare to knicks,he doesnt even know what nba stands for,if nyk bring lbj he would say that lbj is his favourite player

  • The Fresh Prince of Nsam

    Come on people, I mean why all this hate??? It’s summertime, enjoy! Go out and have some ice cream!

  • Clay

    Video: Amare Convinces Fat Joe to Lose Weight.

  • Fat Lever

    Hahahahaha, @Clay. Then he’d just be Joe. Then we’d need to differentiate R&B Joe vs Rap Joe.

    Just a big ol’ fat kid

  • hangtime Hec

    @ Riggs to a certain extent he is correct. I am a teenager myself and can attest to that.

  • http://www.stonesthrow.com Michael NZ

    I am not surprised by any of this.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    Fat Joe can barely convince Nike to give him free shoes anymore. Amare went to New York to get paid and play in the spotlight, not because some beached whale told him to.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    If I could re-tweet BETCATS comment, I definitely would.

  • Sean

    hahaha..dude is a joke. He might of got a “hard-body” but Amare ain’t doing shit without a good point guard and center…no way.


    @Riggs….perhaps deanno is just some delusional and angry 40 year old who really believes in that dumb blanket statement he made. In the end, types like that usually are just hatin’ from the sidelines in the game of life.

  • Harlem_World

    Joey got invited into the Knicks inner-circle! Hahahaha, man, I’m happy for him. I don’t care how he got here, he’s finally here and word on my block is that Lebron is coming too. If we get Bron to go with Amare, man I don’t give a damn what anybody talking about, NY is BACK! Sign some bum PG’s to a 1 yr deal and use the other cap space we didn’t use this year on getting Derron next year and run the league for the next 5+
