Fat Joe’s debut solo album, Represent, was released in 1993. When it comes to his ideals, the rapper’s priorities are clear. Recently, Nick Cannon entered the Money Challenge to remind the world that the “IRS Is Watchin,” but his message appears to have gone unnoticed. Fat Joe slammed the people who were posing with stacks of cash after Nick.
Thanks to NBA YoungBoy, dozens of people, including celebrities, have contributed to the growing social media challenge in which people use cash to spell out short messages. This flex is usually done with $100 bills, but Fat Joe can’t believe so many people are giving the government a front-row seat to their money.
Fat Joe stated that Busy Bee, an OG Hip Hop artist from New York, was the first to popularise the Money Message trend when he spelled his name in cash in the classic film Wild Style. After that, Joe had a few words for the artists who were participating in this trend and flaunting their cash piles.
“I dare you to look down my Instagram, or anywhere on social media, and see if Fat Joe has ever pulled out a one hundred dollar bill. One! And then these people, when they get caught… You told on yourself.”
“You ain’t never had a legit job in your life. You writing your names with mountains of money. F*ck is wrong with you?! Nick Cannon said, IRS is watchin. F*ckin’ right!… In fact, all they gotta do is hashtag Money Challenge. ‘Alright, who’s Loco32? Who’s JonJon33?’… There’s no explanation. You got money, you got money. Don’t do it to yourself.”
