Fat Joe Calls “SkeeYee” “SkeeYou”
On Tuesday night (Oct. 10), Fat Joe hosted the BET Hip Hop Awards for the second year in a row. The Bronx, N.Y. rap veteran’s hosting duties went off without a hitch, except for the moment when he was bigging up DaBaby and Sexyy Red’s performance of “Shake Smn” where he mistakenly changed her song title of “SkeeYee” to “SkeeYou.”
“Yes in deed. Shout out to DaBaby. Shout out to Sexyy Red. SkeeYou!” Joe yelled.

Fat Joe’s snafu did not go unnoticed. Fans on social media have been joking Joey Crack for his misquote.
“Did Fat Joe say ‘SKEEYOU’ sir it’s SKEEYEE,” one user on X, formerly known as Twitter, posted.
“Fat joe like, skeeyou….. baby she did not say that,” another person tweeted.
“Fat joe wtf is skee-you,” another X user wrote along with crying laughing emojis.
