Fat Joe doesn't have the same type of love for 6ix9ine anymore.
Everything comes full circle, doesn't it? It feels like it was just yesterday when Fat Joe warned Tekashi 6ix9ine about doing dirt in the streets. While Fat Joe's prediction was correct, it seemed like a bit of a shock that the self-proclaimed "gangster" struck a deal with prosecutors and sang like a canary on his co-defendants. Despite whatever excuse 6ix9ine is bound to utter upon his release, Fat Joe has stated that he's officially canceled the Brooklyn rapper for not abiding by the street code.

Sitting down with Angie Martinez, Fat Joe made it incredibly clear that there isn't a chance in hell that you'll spot him hanging out with 6ix9ine. In fact, he said that he can't even listen to the rapper's music in the club.
"I thought he was a nice guy, and now he can't be my friend, he can't come around me ever again," Joe said around the 19:10 mark. "Those are rules. He crossed that line. I don't even understand if I go to the club and they play his song -- I'm keepin it a buck. I pray for people who cross that line — when they talk to the police and they snitch, I pray for them."
Fat Joe said that the kids don't care about the code, nor are they following it and that 6ix9ine could still have a career after his release. However, he stated that he'd "die before you see me in the picture with Tekashi 6ix9ine."
Fat Joe continued to say that if this was back in the day, he would've beat up any DJ who played 6ix9ine's music in the club knowing he snitched.
"I'm looking at what alleges to be street guys or gangsters -- allegedly, we think hustlers, drug dealers singing the guy's lyrics in the club knowing the guy's on the daily news talkin' about he spilled the beans. It's crazy to me," Joe said.
While 6ix9ine lost his support from Fat Joe, the legendary rapper said that he might start walking around with a Bobby Shmurda shirt for keeping it real.
