Terror Squad, which began in the late 1990s and lasted till the early 2000s, was one of the most renowned hip-hop groups of all time. Fat Joe, the late Big Pun, Remy Ma, Cuban Link, and others were among the great New York lyricists in the group. However, Fat Joe has recently revealed the terrible story of Terror Squad’s nearly fatal run-in.
The squabble with a mob while in Bridgeport, CT during the Puerto Rican Parade was one of the most well-known stories involving Terror Squad, which most of them never truly addressed. On a recent Instagram live session, Fat Joe finally revealed the story, revealing that Big Pun was the one who persuaded them all to travel to Connecticut for the event, despite the fact that he did not accompany them.
“They invited us to perform up there,” Fat Joe explained. “So we were up there, we were chilling, I ain’t gon’ lie they treated us like kings. We went over there because of (Big) Pun. Pun was telling us to go because that’s his man, and we went up there, Pun didn’t come.”
The wife of the mob’s major drug boss was offered a drink by Cuban Link, who was recognized for providing individual shots of Hennessey at events and such. This enraged the man, who was apparently Frankie “The Terminator” Estrada, a well-known kingpin at the time, leading to a brawl in which Cuban Link hit him in the face.
“Long story short, the main kingpin’s got his wife with him, the Nana, he won’t let go of her hand, he’s one of the dude’s who’s madly in love with their girl. He was the nicest guy in the world, treating us good, fancy hotel. The guy accused Cuban (Link) of trying to f**his girl.”
Joe claimed that after the brawl broke out, the whole population of the club where they had performed attacked them. “Now we go from Puerto Rican parade where we just performed, to 5,000 guys in the club jumping us,” he said “It’s like 10 of us versus 5,000 guys. We had our asses whooped. Listen to me, we got our ass whooped. I don’t know how we’re alive. We fought, at the very least, 1,000 people, the whole f**king club turned on us. We have the best Terror Squad had to offer, there. We weren’t there with p***y guys, we were there with the realest we had. Everywhere you looked we were getting stomped out.”
Fat Joe maintained on how close the call was despite the fact that they all lived to tell the tale. However, below is a video of him sharing the story for the first time in public.
