Fat Joe reveals Anthony Mason was the Knicks’s player in Biggie’s “I Got a Story to Tell”

Appearing on ESPN’S “Highly Questionable” with Dan Le Batard, which aired on Monday, 16 May, the infamous Fat Joe answered one of the most talked about mysteries in rap/sports history that dates back to 1997.

On the record “I Got a Story to Tell,” which appears on the late rapper‘s album “Life After Death,” Biggie explains about how he hooked up with a girl at her place — and the Knicks player, allegedly Mason, arrived home putting them in a compromising situation. South BX rapper, Fat Joe, claims Biggie was talking about the late Anthony Mason, who died last February at the age 48: “I could tell you, but I don’t want to be disrespectful… But um… It was about Anthony Mason, Rest In Peace.”

In the song the woman asked the Knick’s player⎯ Mason⎯ to bring her a drink, in that time B.I.G., realized he had his gun. He then tied her up with rope, covered his face with a scarf and stuffed a pillowcase in her mouth making it look like he was sticking the place up. At the end of the song, B.I.G. stated he walked away with a substantial amount of money.

Fat Joe said the song was not all facts, “… And Ant Mason’s my brother. I love Ant Mason. But you have to also know, that rap is entertainment. We stretch the truth. We change things up.”

Le Batard and Jones finally cracked a mystery they’d spent a substantial amount of time to solve. Fat Joe later stated that he regretted making the claim, adding “I thought everyone knew, but it is what it is.” To make the claim more concrete, though, Puffy himself confirmed the story on Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club.
