“Irv Gotti a sucker, man. He a sucker,” Fat Joe said in an Instagram video. “Y’all can @ Irv Gotti, Ja, whatever the fuck you want. Whatever Irv has with Ashanti is 20 years old, right? I know he was making some points that mean a lot to him, his heart, and soul. But when you keep ranting about somebody 20 years later, it felt like he’s not over the young lady, right.”
In response to Fat Joe‘s rant, Irv Gotti denounced the rapper as his friend, despite their longstanding relationship with each other. “I feel like [Fat Joe] fooled me. He’s not my friend. I was fooled, but in life you get fooled,” Irv said in an interview shortly after.
It appears that the two have made peace since the back-and-forth online. On the latest episode of The Fat Joe Show, the rapper said explained that his comments came from a place of love for Irv Gotti.
“Irv Gotti said I’m no longer his friend. He’s correct because I’m his brother,” Joe said. “And I love him. I love his entire family. I love his mother, I love his sisters, I love his brothers, I love his sons. I love them all. And so sometimes, brothers check each other. That’s the furthest I’ma go.”
No word from Irv Gotti yet but we’ll keep you posted if he responds.
