A young Eminem trying and failing to get Fat Joe to put him on is part of Hip Hop lore.
Joe has been quick to acknowledge that ignoring Eminem was the biggest mistake of his career.
In a new interview with WEDR 99.1FM Miami, Joe revealed just how intensely he brushed aside Marshall Mathers.

"What happened was Eminem out here in Miami, he gave me his demo like six different times. "Joe said. "And everywhere I went there was this little white boy and he kept giving me his demo he was like 'yo listen to my music, I am telling you, I am nice, I'm nice, I.' And I never really, I didn't do it, and now he is the biggest guy in the universe. "
Joe went on to say he similarly screwed up with Rick Ross and also had an early crack at Pitbull, but gave him over to a friend in the industry.
