Fat Joe has responded to 50 Cent's recent attacks on his new album, J.O.S.E. Part II, and said the G-Unit leader helped promote the project better than his record label.
Speaking in an interview yesterday (October 6) afternoon, Joey Crack sarcastically declared his "love" for Fif.
"I've realized something really, that, he's my number one fan and really loves Fat Joe," Joey told radio personality Angie Martinez. "I'm really tuned in to that, I really came to that realization that he's my number one fan because I'm a little upset at the label, I felt we could have did way more promotions, but if you didn't know Fat Joe's album was coming out today, I think he said, 'Yo, my man Joe needs this little bit of promotion man, like he's so much of a formidable opponent, that you know, I gotta keep this guy around, I gotta go promote his new album.' Absolutely. Promotions. Nah, thank-you 50, man, major promotions, you really bigged me up. Nobody was thinking about me before that, thank-you, I love you. J.O.S.E. II in stores right now." (Hot 97)
Appearing in a clip with hospital bandages last week, Fif explained the effects of listening to Joey Crack's music.
"Yo, what's up, this is 50 Cent, I just wanna thank everybody for showing their support with all the 'Get Well' wishes I got from ThisIs50.com," Fif said in a video. "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."

Posted on ThisIs50.com, 50's website said the rapper was rushed to a hospital after hearing Joe's new LP.
This afternoon while in his Manhattan offices, employees say that 50 Cent was listening to Fat Joe's new album, J.O.S.E. 2 when all the sudden, he collapsed! An ambulance was called, and by the time they arrived, 50 Cent regained consciousness and was complaining of blurred vision and a severe migraine. 50 Cent was rushed to Mt. Sinai hospital at 4:26 pm. Doctors say after performing a Cat Scan and EKG there seems to be some damage to his auditory cortex, which is the region of the brain that is responsible for processing sound. (This Is 50)

"Tell 50 to get off my D*CK already," Joey Crack wrote Tuesday (September 29) morning. "he was sick that my album is SO HOT that real music not that wack sh*t him and his clowns are making!!" (Fat Joe's Twitter)
