Fat Joe made a big mistake by overlooking Eminem.
Joe is a multi-platinum-selling rapper with five Grammy nominations to his credit. He has also helped discover and propel artists DJ Khaled, Remy Ma, and Big Pun. One artist he totally mis-scouted, however, is Eminem.

Joe, 49, recently spoke at a live event for Miami’s 99 Jamz radio station about his early interactions with Eminem.
“Eminem out here in Miami, he gave me his demo like six different times,” Crack recalled. “Everywhere I went was this little white boy and he kept giving me his demo.”
“He was like, ‘Yo, listen to my music, I’m telling you, I’m nice, I’m nice, I’m nice,'” Joe revealed. “I didn’t do it and now he’s the biggest guy in the universe.”
He later retweeted an article about his comments, writing: “Biggest mistake of my life.”
