Fat Joe has a heavy heart.
Fat Joe invited Tekashi 6ix9ine onto his Coca Vision live steam on TIDAL nine months ago, and a warning he gave the rainbow-haired rapper was spot on. In the segment, Fat Joe warns Tekashi that the police will be coming for him. "One million percent, they are plotting on you," he exclaimed in the video. "You got a lot of energy around you, so the question is. Do you want to be successful? Do you want to be the king? Do you want to be rich, do you want to take care of your family? What do you wanna do? 'Cause I gotta tell you, as an OG... one move. They 'gon try to throw you in there. Big time. Do you understand this?" Apparently, Tekashi didn't understand. Check out the interview below at the 8:30 mark.
TMZ caught up with Fat Joe recently, and asked him how it felt to correctly predict how Tekashi would be taken down. "I was just trying to school him," Fat Joe admits. "I been through that, I had the heat on me, you know, I was wilin' in the streets. I tried to tell him as a young kid, it's my job." Fat Joe also reveals that he was with Tekashi just a few weeks ago in Dubai, and the two stayed at the same hotel. It was then that Tekashi told Joe that he felt like he was about to be wrapped up in some criminal charges. It explains why Tekashi fired his entire staff, in an attempt to distance himself from the crew.
