Fat Joe has revealed that he came close to squashing the long-time beef between 50 Cent and Rick Ross, but Gunplay ruined his efforts.

"We originally squashed the beef, me and 50, he gave me his hand and was like peace for Chris Lighty. It was a celebration. I was like 'alright, I'm going to do what other n*ggas ain't do for me. I found Rick Ross immediately, cause he was at the award show. I was like 'yo, I squashed the beef with 50 Cent, you know, he squashed it with me.' He was like 'I'ma move how you move.' So I'm thinking, I'm about to squash the Rick Ross/50 Cent beef! I was there! I had him!" he told DJ Whoo Kid.

But, it was not to be.

"So I get to the back and [G-Unit] fighting Gunplay. I was like 'this is not going to happen. This is not very very good. I cannot squash this beef ever again! I thought that was going to be the U.N. Summit." 

So, the beef was back on before they even had a chance to squash it.
