Fat Joe:That was actually Game’s song, but it didn’t make his album. And he was like, ‘Yo Joe, I got this hot song we should do together.’ And that shit came out hard.

 

I had to send Khaled up in there to the Marley compound and he had to smoke like 72,000 blunts with them [so we could get the sample cleared].

 

“I had to send Khaled up in there to the Marley compound and he had to smoke like 72,000 blunts with them [so we could get the sample cleared to use it on my album]. He came out of there on crutches.

“They don’t really clear samples like that. And they were like, ‘Khaled, me know why you’re here, star. You’re here for the fat man tune.’ [Laughs.] He couldn’t even convince them that he wasn’t there to gas them. They knew I sent him in there. They knew what it was.”
