Album: We The Best
Label: Terror Squad/Koch
Fat Joe: “That was big to me because it was T.I., Weezy, Baby, early Rick Ross, and all of us together. It felt like an all-star team. Akon on the hook. [The song itself] was a movie. It was super big. And the video was sick.
I saw that Khaled not only had the potential to be the number-one DJ, but to be a powerhouse in the game [as a producer].
“I met [Khaled] in Atlanta, at Jack The Rapper or something. And this was when ‘Flow Joe’ was out. And he stepped to me and said, ‘I’m a fan.’ And we became friends and family ever since. I saw that he not only had the potential to be the number-one DJ, but to be a powerhouse in the game [as a producer].
“[Khaled] comes from real hip-hop. Like Mobb Deep, Havoc drums. That’s all he used to play when he first became a DJ. He’s got the roots in that hard shit. He’s got it all.”
