Fat Joe wanted to punch Mark Cuban after an Air Jordan bidding war

Tuesday July 29th, 2014

Fat Joe stopped by Complex Magazine's "Quickstrike" show to talk about sneakers and revealed that he almost came to blows with Mark Cuban after losing out on a bidding war with the Dallas Mavericks owner for a rare collection of Air Jordans.

According to Joe, the two were at a charity auction at All-Star weekend and both bidding on a full run of Jordans I-XXIII when Joe had to bow out at the $500,000 mark.

After Cuban won the coveted kicks, he told the rapper that he would just toss the shoes in his closet with all his other things, driving the Jordan loving Fat Joe to the point of rage.

The Bronx rapper seems to have gotten over the incident as he tells the story with a healthy dose of laughter, but it doesn't seem like a great idea to come between Fat Joe and his sneakers.
