Fat Joe appeared on Bomani Jones and Dan Le Batard's ESPN show Highly Questionable today to discuss his childhood and the Roy Jones Jr. line in "Lean Back," among other things. The highlight of the interview came when Fat Joe revealed the identity of the New York Knicks player that Notorious B.I.G. mentioned in his Life After Death cut "I Got A Story To Tell." According to Fat Joe, the player in question was Anthony Mason, who played with the Knicks from 1991 to 1996. "That was the rumor," Fat Joe told Jones and Le Batard before adding, "[rappers] stretch the truth." Mason died in 2015 due to congestive heart failure at the age of 48.
