Terror Squad leader Fat Joe recently discussed the United States’ economic crisis citing its impact on every hip-hop artist and their fans.

Along with the recession, Joey Crack also discussed 50 Cent‘s controversial footage of DJ Khaled‘s mother earlier this year.

“The recession has affected the whole entire globe,” Joe explained. “Anyone telling you the recession ain’t real is a liar. So the recession is too real, it’s affecting everybody, you know, if people ain’t got money how can they go to your show? If people ain’t got money, how can they buy your record? Another way that it’s affecting me is a lot of my friends are being laid off. They’re coming to me like, ‘Joe I’m messed up, what can I do’ I try to help but I can’t help the whole world…It really upsets me to know that so many of my friends are doing so bad during these times as well…In hip-hop, where do we draw the line…Notice he hasn’t had a fight with nobody yet in every beef he’s had in the universe. Disrespecting DJ Khaled’s mom, that’s not hip-hop. I haven’t heard anybody that thought it was dope.” (Wild 101.1) Read the rest of this entry »
