The slimmed down rapper brought along his Hip-Hop and R 'n' B friends to appear on his latest music video.
Fat Joe premieres his star-studded music video for "Pride N Joy", one of the singles lifted from his upcoming 11th studio album. The video features Kanye West, Miguel, Jadakiss, DJ Khaled, Roscoe Dash, Busta Rhymes and Ashanti but excludes Mos Def who could not make it to the video shoot.
Directed by Hype Williams and shot last month, the video kicks off with Joe and Kanye rapping simultaneously and goes on revealing the guest stars one by one. The video also gives plenty of screen time for the liquor Nuvo L'esprit De Paris.
On working with Kanye, Joe gushed to MTV, "I got a phone call from Kanye West. He said, 'Yo, Joe, it's time, let's do it''. You know, he's one of my favorite rappers of all time, one of my favorite producers, so when he gave me the call, I jumped on that plane immediately and I said, 'Let's go'."
