Fat Joe is a longtime Kanye West fan, so the fact that he is currently singing Yeezy’s praises

has very little to do with the fact that they are working together for the first time.

West appears alongside Fat Joe and Busta Rhymes, DJ Khaled, Miguel, Yasiin Bey (Mos Def),

Roscoe Dash and Jadakiss on Don Cartagena’s latest single, “Pride N Joy.”

“In the world of Kanye West, it’s an adventure,” Fat Joe told MTV News of their in-studio

collaboration when we visited Joe Crack, Kanye and the rest of the gang on the set of the

single’s Hype Williams-directed video.

I got a phone call from Kanye West. He said, ‘Yo, Joe, it’s time, let’s do it,’ ” the Terror Squad

MC said of how the collaboration came about. “You know, he’s one of my favorite rappers of

all time, one of my favorite producers, so when he gave me the call, I jumped on that plane

immediately and I said, ‘Let’s go.’ ”

While Yeezy loved the track Joe played for him, he ended up taking it apart and putting it

back together to his specifications. “He was like, ‘Yeah, all right, engineer, erase everything

… and now let’s start,’ ” Fat Joe recalled of ‘Ye’s process. “I was like, ‘Wow, this guy’s crazy,’

but you know, it’s an adventure.”

Whatever the process, Fat Joe walked away in awe of West’s creativity. “It was amazing, man.

He’s a genius,” he said. “To get in there with him is incredible, and he likes perfection, and

that only means the record is going to be hot, so, you know I love it.”

Whether the two will work together again anytime soon is anyone’s guess. “I really don’t know.

You know, there’s some rumors,” Joe said cryptically. “That’s all I can say. It’s a rumor until it

happens, just put it like that.”
