Before Twitter, news of celebrity feuds spread like wildfire the old-fashioned way—through the rumor mill like an elaborate game of telephone. One of these pre-internet beefs was between rappers Fat Joe and Jay Z. But the story at the time wasn't quite in line with reality. When Fat Joe visited VICELAND's Desus & Mero, he gave the lowdown on what actually happened between him and Jay, including one awkward elevator encounter.

Along with discussing his complicated relationship with Jay Z, the hip-hop icon talked all about his various living situations—including growing up in the Bronx projects, moving to New Jersey, staying in his bird-infested Florida "dream home," and what happened when he became neighbors with Kelly Rowland in Miami. 

You can watch last night's Desus & Mero for free online now, and be sure to catch new episodes weeknights at 11 PM on VICELAND.
