Meanwhile, Fat Joe has claimed that he owns a copy of an unreleased song that he recorded with Jay-Z.

Speaking to GQ about his new memoir The Book of Jose, the rapper stated that Jay-Z once recorded a guest verse on one of his tracks. The song was put on hold in 2019, however, because of controversies related to the NFL.


He said that there were copies in existence: “I got a copy here. I don’t listen to it but I got it.” Although he added: “Dre got it. Let me put it clear. Dre of Cool & Dre got it. I don’t have it.”

In other news, Jay-Z is now tied with his wife Beyoncé for the most nominations in Grammy history, having clocked up 88 nods in total each.
