Can Fat Joe release a Classic Album?

9 Oct

Fat JoeFat Joe is known for making hits. From every album released by him, he seems to always score a top 10 hit. To most people, Fat Joe is known as a pop rapper.

His subject matter rarely departs from the club. Take Fat Joe’s singles, “Lean Back” and “Make it Rain.” Both songs were about the club. Those songs were hits, but just not classics.

Fat Joe knows how to make good albums because his albums are geared towards the club. But, more than anything, Joe is a follower. His music always seems to ride the current trends in hip hop music.

Joe’s albums are usually good, but they are the same. Classic albums are defined as groundbreaking and different. While Fat Joe knows how to make good music, he never brings anything new.

When talking about his latest release, J.O.S.E., Pt. II, Fat Joe said that he wants to take over the rap game with that album. Joey Crack said that his mission is to create the best hip hop album ever.

For a man that always follows trends, that is easier said than done. Also, classic albums usually tend to have deep lyricism, while Fat Joe is a good rapper, he is far from the lyrical level of a Nas or Jay-Z.
