Fat Joe has weighed in on Rick Ross and DJ Envy’s ongoing beef, saying he’s not a fan of the direction it’s taking.
Tension between the pair started earlier this month when the MMG mogul took a swipe at the Breakfast Club co-host during his interview on Drink Champs, declaring he was “never on my level” when it comes to hosting car shows.
Rozay is throwing his second annual car show at his sprawling Promise Land estate in Georgia on June 3, while Envy is hosting two car shows in Memphis and Houston in the coming weeks.
After light jabs were exchanged, things quickly became personal when Rick Ross dragged DJ Envy’s family into the feud, requesting he and his girlfriend and children clean his swimming pool.
“DJ Envy, you just gave me a good idea. I just told the people who are coming to clean up my pool to hold on ’cause I said Envy and his seven sons can come over here, y’all can handle this pool for the pool party, July 2nd,” he taunted in an Instagram Story video.
“And Envy, out of respect and love for you, that part of the pool, I’m saving that just for yo girlfriend and her lil’ baddies. DJ Envious, you just started a pool cleaning service. ‘Cause you got a job, you work. I’m kinda confused — you talking to a boss and you got a job that you gotta report to. Don’t get fired by that white man!”
Envy fired back earlier this week by donning a police uniform and doing an “Officer Ricky” impression on The Breakfast Club, taking shots at Ross’ past stint as a correctional officer, which has remained a contentious point of discussion 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 while Ross and Envy are both “beautiful” people, they need to lay their feud to rest.
“Don’t like what’s going on with Rick Ross and DJ Envy,” Joe said. “Don’t like it. I love ’em both. Beautiful men in their own right, successful, do their thing. I don’t like where it’s going. I know I’ve had my share of beefing with people, but I don’t like it because they’re both beautiful, beautiful people.”

Rick Ross had been receiving a fair amount of pushback against his upcoming car show, with his permit initially being denied by Fayette County after local residents complained that last year’s event brought traffic in the area to a complete standstill.
However, the Florida native announced on Monday that Fayette County had U-turned on their decision and approved his permit just under two weeks before the big day.
“THE CAR SHOW & RODEO JUNE 3RD ROLLING!!!!,” he wrote on Instagram while sharing a screenshot of Fayette County signing off on the show. “@rickrosscarshow @theslipperysoap ‘EAT LIKE A KING HA.’”
There still remains concern from local police, however, over “the potential impact” that the car show could have on the community. The department have said they’ll have extra patrols and officers on duty, as well as special traffic plans to minimize any disruptions.
