Fat Joe “A lot of albums I hear these days sound like mixtapes”

28 Sep

Fat JoeFat Joe is almost the definition of longevity in this rap game. He can be called corny, ringtone rapper, or whatever, but he has outlasted most other rappers. Joey Crack has constantly come with hits for over sixteen years.

Currently, Fat Joe is readying his ninth studio album, J.O.S.E. 2, for release next week. In promotion for his album, the Bronx rapper has taken to doing a web series. When talking about albums being released, now-a-days, he had some choice words.

Fat Joe said that most albums that he hears sound a lot like mixtapes. The truth is, most mixtapes from these new artists are sounding better than albums being released by the veterans. He said that every time he goes in to make an album he tries to make hit music.

While his albums rarely sell many copies, he knows how to make hit records. In the past five years, he has released such hits as “Lean Back,” “Make it Rain,” “I Won’t Tell,” “Ain’t Sayin’ Nothin’,” and “One.” While he has made many hits, he has been criticized for his music sounding the same.

His music may be the same, but Fat Joe is trying to change things up. Only one week before his album is released, he is thinking about changing his name to Fat Gangsta and retitling his album to Jealous Ones Still Envy, Part Two.

Whatever the title of album is, it will be released on October 6, 2009 on Terror Squad/Imperial/Capitol.
