Although they're two of New York's best-known rap exports, Fat Joe and 50 Cent have not always had the friendliest of history - more accurately, they've had one of the city's biggest beefs. But after coming together for a Chris Lighty tribute at the BET Awards in 2012, the two have supposedly been on good terms. Now, facilitated by DJ Kay Slay, who's been releasing a slew of other songs featuring some of New York's finest MCs, the two are finally together on a track. It's called "Free Again," and it debuted last night on Funkmaster Flex's radio show on Hot 97. It's full of serious New York bars, as the two reflect on their pasts. Joe discusses his time in prison ("Shout out to you-know who / Let me f*ck in the chapel.") and 50 lobs some taunts ("The fuck you think I am? Kanye? / I had them wearing vests / Now these n*ggas wear dresses."). Peep a listen below, it's some of both artists' best work in years. #ORGANIZEDGRIND
