Fat Joe has weighed in on Rick Ross and DJ Envy’s ongoing beef, saying he’s not a fan of where it’s headed.
The tension between the pair began earlier this month when the MMG mogul took a hit at the breakfast club co-host during his interview on Drink championsstating that he was “never at my level” when it comes to hosting car shows.
Rozay is hosting his second annual auto show at his sprawling Promise Land estate in Georgia on June 3, while Envy is hosting two auto shows in Memphis and Houston in the coming weeks.
After the lighthearted exchange of blows, things quickly got personal when Rick Ross dragged DJ Envy’s family into the feud, asking him, his girlfriend and his kids to clean his pool.
“DJ Envy, you just gave me a great idea. I just told people who come to clean my pool to hang on because I said Envy and his seven sons can come here, y’all can handle this pool for pool party July 2nd,” he quipped in an Instagram Story video.
“And Envy, out of respect and love for you, this part of the pool, I’m saving it just for your girlfriend and her little baddies.” DJ Envious, you have just started a pool cleaning service. Because you have a job, you work. I’m a little confused – you’re talking to a boss and you have a job to report to. Don’t get kicked out by that white man!
Envy retaliated earlier this week by donning a police uniform and doing an ‘Officer Ricky’ impression on The breakfast clubsnapping photos of Ross’ past as a correctional officer, which remained a controversial talking point throughout his career.
After watching the drama unfold from afar, Fat Joe took to Instagram on Monday (May 22) to share his thoughts on the matter. The Terror Squad leader said that although Ross and Envy are both “beautiful” people, they need to end their feud.
“I don’t like what’s going on with Rick Ross and DJ Envy,” Joe said. ” I do not like it. I like both of them. Handsome, full-fledged, successful men do their thing. I don’t like where this is going. I know I’ve had my share of fights with people, but I don’t like it because they’re both really nice people.
Rick Ross had received a healthy dose of pushback against his upcoming car show, with his permit initially denied by Fayette County after local residents complained that last year’s event had completely crippled the traffic in the area.
However, the Florida native announced on Monday that Fayette County had backed away from its decision and approved his permit just under two weeks before the big day.
“THE CAR SHOW & RODEO JUNE 3 ROLLING!!!!,” he wrote on Instagram while sharing a screenshot of Fayette County signing the show. “@rickrosscarshow @theslipperysoap ‘EAT LIKE A KING HA.'”
However, local police remain concerned about the “potential impact” the car show could have on the community. The department said it would have additional patrols and officers on duty, as well as special traffic plans to minimize disruption.
