Reports have landed online which claim Fat Joe and Jay-Z came across one another during a recent nightclub celebration in New York City, however, appeared to keep their distance.
According to reports, the rap veterans were spotted together in a Manhattan venue as Joe celebrated his J.O.S.E. Part II album.
The feud between Jay-Z and rapper Fat Joe may be simmering down, but it's not over. Both attended a party at club Imperial the other night, and spies said they didn't speak at all. One source says, 'Jay-Z arrived and totally upstaged Fat Joe. He rolled up in a Jeep with no roof or doors, and was blasting out his new song. Then, when he got into the DJ booth, the whole club just came to a standstill. Fat Joe was not a happy camper. He made sure he wasn't in the DJ booth when Jay-Z was there. Instead, he ordered a bottle of Hennessey and looked moody in the VIP area. Then, later on Twitter, he thanked Jay-Z for stopping by his party.' (New York Post)
Joey confirmed Hov's attendance in a Twitter posting last weekend.
"@StarburyMarbury yo what's my brother holla at me," he wrote on Saturday (September 26). "Shouts to Jay Z and Swizz for coming thur my party at imperial!!!

NBA veteran Stephon Marbury, who has close ties with Fat Joe, has recently been dissing Jay-Z in his live broadcasts.
"Let me tell you something homeboy, you gonna apologize for saying that 'Don't get me confused with Marbury you run up on me at the light, you gonna lose your life,'" Marbury said. "You never gonna say that to nobody because guess what, I'm setting up programs for everybody that's in jail coming home. Yup, they all gonna be working for Starbury. And guess what, they gonna hear this up north. And guess what? They know up north, whatever Starbury says, he's gonna do it. 'I seen him bring home three tractor trailers to his home in Coney Island and give out pizza for days...shorts, t-shirt, you name it, he did it.' ... Jay-Z, you better say sorry! Because we form like Voltron in here, you know what that's gonna be...Nobody don't like you no more...Come on son, how you gonna hate on T-Pain?" (Starbury Fan)

"Yesterday, I listened to Fat Joe's record, and it hurt me. And I told you people, not to listen to his music, and some people didn't listen. And look what happened. Young Buck tried to ride his motorcycle after listening to Fat Joe's record and look what happened...The skate boarders. The people riding their bikes. There's people playing the music trying to work out. It's terrible. [crying] Fat Joe's record is the worst thing to ever happen to hip-hop. And it hurts, it hurts bad because I love hip-hop. I don't know what else to say, I mean, everywhere. This is happening all over the place, and it's because his music sucks so bad. It's gonna kill people. Don't listen to it, please, please."
