If there is one thing you can expect from Fat Joe, it’s that he will share his honest opinion even if it’s an unpopular one.
While discussing the music industry, the two exchanged their views on the ongoing JAY-Z vs. Drake debate. Burns voted for the latter, attributing his decision to a “passing of the torch.” “When there’s a passing of the torch, the passing of the mic happens,” he explained before Fat Joe chimed in with a cosign. “I think he [Drake] got the title,” the “Lean Back” rapper began. “JAY-Z grew up, he’s more of a business man now, and so the only thing Drake can do now is try to find that money like JAY-Z has. Music wise, JAY-Z’s not really thinking about the music like Drake is. He’s playing a game called, ‘Get my billions up. I’m already one of the greatest ever in hip hop.’ Me, I think he’s the greatest ever, personally.”
“It was very therapeutic for me,” he explained. “I had to get on Lives and start talking to them [his fans] and trying to cheer them up and tell them stories. And before you know it, I realized they helped me.”
