From his perspective, the original TS crew can never be reformed.
"The original Terror Squad is pretty much a wrap," Geddy said in an interview. "Joe kept the brand going. You know, I don't know
if you can regroup and form a new Terror Squad. We're not Menudo, you
can't switch artists like that. But it's still a brand and he does what
he does with it." (XXL Mag)
Last December, he talked about not regretting his departure from TS.
"I'm over it so we're good," he explained about exiting TS. "We're good money. I still talk to Joe here and there. I still talk to Prospect.
I'm just doing my own thing. I wanna say no [reunion], there's no
chance, but you never f*cking know, B. You never know. But at this
point, where I'm at right now and where everybody's at right now, I
don't see that happening because some cats I just don't rock with and
some cats just don't have the integrity that I would feel comfortable
dealing with. They sh*t on you one day and then they got love for you
the next day and then they sh*t on you again. I can't play those
and I can't see that happening. I got people telling me that such and
such needs my help and I should do something but I've been there and
done that. I don't go backwards and I'm not joining the washed up rapper
plan where everybody goes and gets together and goes after the big
fish. I'm not with all that. I'm doing my own thing. As of now I don't
see that happening." (Hip Hop Game)
Ex-Terror Squad member Cuban Link previously cited Fat Joe's shady business practices.
"It's gon be some sh*t man [if I see him in the street]," Link promised in an interview. "Yeah, not that I want to put it out
there like that, 'cause you know. It's still serious enough that I don't
get along with him like that. His talent definitely was business. He's a
business man to the point that he know what he wanted and he'll get it,
whatever. He'll use his of
gab to get it and once he gets it, he uses people and throws 'em away.
That's what he does. He always rides with what's hot right now. You
always see the hottest n*ggas that are out, he always knows hot to suck
up to them so he gets that record from 'em so he stays in the loop...[Big]
Pun gave him the strength, sold a million records and gave him
business power...Talking about blacklisted, he blacklisted Franky
Cutlass, that's back in the day sh*t right there...King
Sun, those are the people that wrote his first album." (Forbez

Joe debuted the group on his Don Cartagena album (1998),
featuring certain members separately and bringing together everyone for
"The Hidden Hand." A year later came the debut, self-titled Terror Squad
album. Atlantic released it in September, but it didn't spawn any
substantial hits. (All Music)
