Fat Joe has recently set down with Remy Ma where they talked about many things, including an incredible story on Eminem and Big Pun collaboration which almost happened:
“Let’s be clear, Jadakiss is one of those guys that stood the test of time. He didn’t get wack. The only discussion me and Big Pun had and he put it to me, and he’s talking about doing a song with anybody, any cypher. His goal was to kill everybody. So at the time, that’s when ‘John Blaze’ was out, and ‘Banned From TV.’ He felt like out of all those records, he had to watch for that muthafucka Jadakiss. Cause he gon’ do what he do. But I can honestly say that he was waiting for Eminem. That was his thing.”
“He was like ‘I can’t wait to get on a track with him. That was his goal. Out of his lips, he told me. He cannot wait for the song to come with him and Eminem. That’s what he was waiting for. I was like, I can’t wait neither!” says Remy Ma
Considering that Pun passed away in February 2000, it’s likely he was familiar with Eminem’s Slim Shady LP and the features he did for Dr. Dre’s 2001.
