Behind the Video: Fat Joe f/ Kanye West, Jadakiss, Miguel, & Busta Rhymes – ‘Pride N Joy’

Fat Joe and Kanye West

Fat Joe was joined by some of his famous friends including Kanye West while shooting the Hype Williams-directed video for his feature-heavy single “Pride N Joy” last month in New York.

“I got a phone call from Kanye West. He said, ‘Yo Joe, it’s time. Let’s do it,’” Joey Crack told MTV News. “He’s one of my favorite rappers of all time, one of my favorite producers, so when he gave me the call, I jumped on that plane immediately and I said, ‘Let’s go.’”

The clip also features appearances from Jadakiss and Miguel. “The vibe is chill when you’re working with good people,” said the “Adorn” singer. “It completely sets a different tone. It’s not stressful, it’s real easy, and professional as well.”

Busta Rhymes made his cameo en route to the airport. “If I miss my plane, I’m suing Joe Crack my brother,” he joked before making a quick exit.
