The First One

03-12-2020 • 44 min

DJ Khaled welcomes one of the most important people in his life, Fat Joe, to this week's episode of "The First One." As the founder of the Terror Squad, it was Fat Joe who first helped bring DJ Khaled to prominence. In this episode, the two dig deep on their history together, which is forever tied to the iconic record "Lean Back," featuring Remy Ma. Joe and Khaled speak on how that record was created out of a necessity for a new publishing deal, how the video helped launch Kevin Hart's career, how Joe's upbringing was surrounded by Hip-Hop history and much more. The two also speak about the making of "All The Way Up," the hit record in which Joe and Remy reconnect after a much publicized falling out. This conversation spans through the long and storied friendship of the two over decades of Hip-Hop history.

New episodes of "The First One" release every Thursday, only on Amazon Music. Featured guests include Lil Wayne, J Balvin, T.I., Jon Bon Jovi, Big Sean, and more. Check out the music featured and discussed in this episode on The First One Playlist: smarturl.it/FirstOnePlaylist.
