Legendary hip hop host Angie Martinez is chatting it up with the one and only Fat Joe in this EXCLUSIVE preview of Untold Stories of Hip Hop: Quarantine Edition. Angie wonders what the inside of Fat Joe’s phone looks like and asks him about it. “If somebody got a hold of my phone, it’d be bad because I got some people on my phone for real,” Fat Joe says. She asks the rapper if he gives his celebrity friends fake names in his phone in case someone else got a hold of it.
He says that Jennifer Lopez is “Jenny from the Block.” Angie laughs and tells Fat Joe that everyone will know exactly who that is. He adds that he has a plethora of celebrity numbers. Angie decides to play a game of FaceTime Roulette with Fat Joe, and he adds the 5 biggest names in his phone to the wheel — Diddy, Snoop Dogg, JAY Z, Mike Tyson, and J.Lo.
Angie asks if JAY Z ever answers his calls. “He answers to me. All the time,” Fat Joe says. When the arrow lands on Jennifer, Fat Joe says he’s going to call her. The final seconds of the preview feature Fat Joe’s iPhone screen as he calls “Jenny from the Block.”
