Nick Cannon is looking to squash his beef with Eminem, but he needs a little help from Fat Joe first. On Monday (Sept. 7), Cannon chopped it up with Joe for an installment of “The Fat Joe Show,” where they discussed his decade-long feud.

“One day, hopefully, dude and I will get an opportunity to sit down, ’cause like I said, I do respect his ability,” the “Wild ‘n Out” creator said about Em.

Joe offered to facilitate a conversation between Cannon and the “Not Afraid” rapper, which Cannon said he would gladly accept. The radio host also revealed he’s reached out to Royce Da 5’9” to mediate a potential sit-down, too.

“If you can do it, man,” Cannon told Joe. “I been trying to get... I done talked to Royce [5’9”], we trying to really get it popping, ’cause I think at the end, two men need to have that conversation.”

“While you at it, tell [Royce] to come,” Cannon added. “We’ll set up an exclusive ‘Wild’ n Out’ Detroit.”

Eminem and Cannon’s feud began with Em’s 2009 song “Bagpipes From Bagdad,” where he dissed both Cannon and his former wife Mariah Carey. The beef was regifted last year when Slim Shady called out Cannon on Joe’s track “Lord Above,” which Cannon responded to with a series of diss tracks.

His three singles aimed at Em drew comments from 50 Cent, Joyner Lucas and others, while Joey Crack committed to not playing either side.

“I’m an innocent bystander!” Joe previously told TMZ. “I love Nick Cannon, he’s a good guy. Eminem’s a very good friend of mine, and they got their little personal hip hop thing going.”

“When you talk rap, Eminem’s a G.O.A.T. He’s an alien,” he added. “I look up to Eminem lyrically... I love them both. I think this is fun stuff [that’s] going on.”
