Nick Cannon gave Fat Joe his props as a hip-hop legend when he appeared as a guest on Cannon’s self-titled talk show. He also disclosed that the “All the Way Up” MC was instrumental in helping to squash the decade-long beef between the host and Eminem.
“Your show is so entertaining and so real and authentic, and it helps people,” Cannon said of Joe’s popular Instagram Live chats. “And honestly, I gotta keep it a stack, this brother right here helped end the ‘beef’ with me and Eminem on his show. And it wasn’t no ‘real beef,’ but Joe was like, ‘Man, I gotta get you two brothers together, man.’ And he called Eminem.”
Fat Joe took it from there, recalling his mandate to Em. “I said, ‘This gotta stop.’ You know, y’all both my friends, y’all my brothers, y’all beautiful people, I don’t even know what this is about.”
“Fat Joe ended it, you gotta listen to the OG,” Nick said. “Shouts out to Eminem.”
The feud between Nick Cannon and Eminem, which started in 2009 after the latter called out Nick on his Relapse track “Bagpipes from Baghdad,” had died down in recent years, but it heated up again in February 2020 when Slim Shady took another jab at the Wild ’N Out host on the Fat Joe and Dre song “Lord Above.”
