Miami producer Scott Storch recently spoke on the return of longtime friend Fat Joe following a three-month bid behind bars and what fans can expect from them teaming back up.
Storch said he is most excited about hooking back up with Joey Crack this year and churning out new hits.
“One of the things that I’m really looking forward to is getting back and working with my brother Fat Joe,” Storch said in an interview. “I just talked to him over the [winter] holiday and he’s anxious and excited to get back in and we’re both in a good place now. I always have good luck with Joe. Lightning has struck quite a few times in the same place — Joe’s got a great ear [for music] too.” (“Mikey T The Movie Star”)
Last month, Joe said he had kept busy with various activities during his jail stretch.
“Man, I just been working, working out, reading a lot, educating myself, eating healthy,” Joe said when asked how he kept busy during his bid. “I was in the building where you don’t see the sun. So I came out like a white chicken wing – I ain’t have the sunrays.” (Revolt TV)
Joey Crack also discussed a clip he posted of himself surprising his daughter on Thanksgiving.
“They gave me a pass to come home for Thanksgiving. It was like, for a couple of hours. The reason why she ain’t really notice me at first is because I was like hiding behind this wood wall and I popped out on her. I was just so happy to see my daughter. I never told her where I was at. I would phone her and tell her I was on tour overseas and write her letters. That was hard. … My last day of captivity will be Christmas Eve, a Christmas present, yeah. … I’m not able to go to the studio yet so as soon as I touch that studio, I’m ready to go.” (Revolt TV)
Prior to beginning his sentence, the Bronx rapper revealed a personal accountant mishandled his finances which ultimately resulted in a tax-related conviction.
“Well, what happened was I always had the same accountant for years and his son was in a car accident — so he retired and they introduced me to a new accountant so he took over my stuff so I got onto my ‘rapper’ where I have the guy paying all my bills and all that, so I’m wiring him money to pay my bills, my taxes — months and months of not paying [off my taxes], he paid it all off and I already knew this was some Ponzi scheme type dude. … So next day I went and got [a different] accountant and we tried to fix what was going on. … They feel like you, as the leader of your household, you supposed to be over everything that’s going on. You still get the blame even though it’s the accountant’s fault. … I paid them all the money back and I figured if you pay them all your money back — I ended up spending a million two hundred thousand and you know, I’m not Jay Z or none of that. Penalties is on top of that.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
