Fat Joe said that his time in jail helped him end his beef with Jay-Z and 50 Cent. The Bronx rapper was locked up in 2013 for tax evasion and said he had a major epiphany there.

"It was crazy," said Joe on The Breakfast Club. "This guy came to me and he was like, 'You going to join the basketball league?' And I was like, 'Basketball? I ain't playing no basketball.' And he's like 'Yeah, it's the 40 and over.' "And that sh*t was like ricocheting. I walked away like 'Oh my God. I'm 40.'"

"So that was great," he added. "God gave me that opportunity because that never left nowhere. So when I went to my cell, I knew that my window was smaller ... And I had to fix a lot of relationships. I knew when I came out of jail I had to squash my sh*t with Jay-Z, squash my sh*t with 50 Cent and any loose ends I had out there."

Do you like the refined, more mature Joe or the gangster Joe who beefed with folks?
