Fat Joe Passed On Signing Eminem Six Times

Eminem had many doors slammed in his face as he was shopping his demo in hopes of getting a record deal. Fat Joe recently revealed that he was one of the naysayers that decided not to give Em a chance.

“Man I got so many regrets,” the Terror Squad rep told the South China Morning Post. “The biggest is that Eminem gave me so many demos – six different times he approached me and I didn’t sign him. Shame on me.”

The Bronx native has not been as active on the hip-hop scene due to taking on the role as the president of urban and Latino development for Market America but says that he has new music and other projects in the works.

“We are working on music now, great music,” he said. “I am working with new talent and that is going to be really exciting. We are also doing movies and television. We are just working.”
