Trick Daddy Denies That Fat Joe Discovered Him: ‘Maybe He Got It Confused’

Trick Daddy disagrees with Fat Joe‘s claim that he discovered the “Naan” rapper.

Back in 2022 during an appearance on My Expert Opinion, Joe claimed of Trick Daddy, “I took his shit and got him signed.” It was a take that, not long afterwards, got pushback from Uncle Luke, who also claimed involvement in Trick’s early career.


Now, Trick himself is having his say. He went on VladTV on Saturday (February 17), and suggested that Fat Joe might have embelleshed his tale.

“Fat Joe gotta be older than me,” he said. “Because I go to be forgetting things, but I never hallucinate. Fat Joe said he took my CD into Craig Kallman at Atlantic Records. If you got my deal, how do I get a CD? I see him telling a lot of stories. Maybe he got it confused.”

His words about Trick Daddy’s career aren’t the only notable statements Joe has made of late. More recently, there was a confession the Terror Squad rapper made while he was defending Young Thug, in which he admitted that he lied in “95 percent” of the songs that he’s released throughout his career.

During an appearance on CNN with Gayle King back in December, the Bronx rapper called it “horrible” and a “travesty” that Thugga’s lyrics can be used against him in his YSL RICO case.

“I’ve been rapping professionally for 30 years — I’ve lied in almost 95 percent of my songs,” Joe began. “I’m being honest. I write like I feel that day. I’m just being creative. You couldn’t build a jail high enough for the lyrics I’ve said on songs which are all untrue.

“What I am is a family man, the person who gives back to my community all the time, opens businesses in my community. So the music would never amount to the actual person, Joseph Cartagena.”


He continued: “What’s even more horrible is that the district attorneys, they know those lyrics ain’t real. They know that’s creativity. But if it helps their case, they’ll use it to put these guys in jail.

“And here, we’re having a fun show about it and discussion, but there really is six defendants in Atlanta who might spend the rest of their lives in jail for something that’s totally not true. This is very serious. This destroys families.”
