““I met @officialbizmarkie when I was a teenager. He was the first superstar to tell me he believed in me and I’ll make it. This is so inspirational to me knowing someone who made it to tell me I’ll make it,” Joe shared. “Biz also made my favorite hip hop song ever, ‘Vapors.’ When I grew up, I had nothing and I told them all I was going to get rich or die trying. I love you Biz thank you for always bringing joy to this world.”
