Fat Joe names the dead rappers he’d like to bring back to life | HipHopDX

Fat Joe has revealed which two fallen rappers he would bring to life if he could, but not for the sake of musical collaborations.

During his recent appearance on Red Table TalkJoe fielded questions from a handful of fans, one of whom asked if there was anyone he wished he could bring back to life.

“If it’s just music, that would be it Biggie and Big pun,” Fat Joe replied. “Oh my God, these guys died so young. And they were my good friends, my brothers. My best time in life was when I discovered Pun and we went through everything.

“Biggie was my brother since day one too,” he continued. “Such a beautiful guy. He didn’t have to die. It’s really sad.”

Fat Joe’s friendship with Big Pun developed after the Terror Squad boss discovered the late Puerto Rican rapper and welcomed him as a guest on the single “Watch Out” from his 1995 album Jealous One’s Envy. During an IG Live conversation with Timbaland and Swizz Beatz last year, Joe shared that his friendship with Biggie almost led the two to release a joint album together.

Earlier this year, Fat Joe also revealed that he was the force behind it Bone Thugs-N-Harmony‘s performance at Biggie’s “Notorious Thugs,” a fact which Layzie Bone confirmed.

“I’ll tell you all something. I was up all night going through what he said and I was just like, ‘Damn. Man, he really did it this time,'” Joe said of Ye’s comments. “And so I just thought about it and how he hurts people with his statements and his comments. He said some really horrible things. And this morning, on the way here, I came out of my hotel. The door opened and it was Kanye West alone.”
