Until we get The Life And Times Of Sebastian Rios, Joell goes over the sounds of Jake One with “Seven Deuce”.
New Music: Joell Ortiz – “Seven Deuce” (prod. by Jake One)
After the jump Fat Joe supports Joell Ortiz’s “Big Pun Back”…..
XXL caught up with Fat Joe to get his thoughts on Joell’s tribute to Big Pun, which has received some backlash from others close to the late Christopher Rios.
“I thought it was incredible. I thought it was great. I never seen a guy in my fuckin’ life get backlash for fuckin’ biggin’ up somebody.”
“See, what happened is Big Pun was surrounded by an enormous amounts of idiots,” he added. “And, sad to say, as big of a genius he was, and beautiful as he was, and I’m not just sayin’ that ’cause he dead, ’cause he was the most loyal, beautiful person… He’s my brother. I worship him to death… But, it’s unfortunate he was surrounded by a bunch of fuckin’ idiots. Nincompoops. You got a younger Spanish dude who’s hot in the streets and he wants to honor Big Pun and you throw slander at him and you disrespect him for fuckin’ only honoring Pun? How do expect anybody else to honor Big Pun?! Or talk about him in a good way?!”
“This is the shit, I hope people can open their eyes and see the shit that Fat Joe has been dealing with for the last 12 years,” he continued. “It’s fuckin’ idiotic. It’s fuckin’ lunacy at its finest. ‘I don’t think you should’ve bigged up Pun.’ Like, what the fuck are you talkin’ about? He’s honoring Big Pun, showing respect to Big Pun. What’s the problem? We can’t do that? We’re honoring the one fuckin’ Spanish nigga that wants to step up and say, ‘Guess what? Man, I love Big Pun. Big Pun’s back.’ Where’s the disrespect? I never seen shit like this in my life. Amazing, man. I think I got more upset than Joell Ortiz did, but I know the type of people he’s dealing with.”
