Album Review

Fat Joe's success with Terror Squad's "Lean Back" came at a small price that made a surprisingly big ripple. A dis, however unprovoked, came from 50 Cent on "Piggy Bank": "That fat n***a thought 'Lean Back' was 'In da Club'/My sh*t sold 11 mil, his sh*t was a dud." Big deal. Fat Joe doesn't seem to have body issues (maybe that's why he calls himself Fat Joe), and a lot of grandmothers can confirm that "Lean Back" wasn't a dud. This non-event also had something to do with the decision to change this album's original title, Things of That Nature, to the more serious All or Nothing. (A wise move since "Things of that nature" is almost as synonymous with Arnold Schwarzenegger as "You're fired" is with Donald Trump.) The album, Joe's first in name since 2002's Loyalty, caught some extra attention thanks to a reluctant response track. "My Fofo," in which shots are fired back, demonstrates why he doesn't consider himself a battle MC. For reasons hinted at above, and the fact that he caved into pressure from fans, he doesn't seem all that into it, even though some of the rhymes are wittier and meaner than the ones that provoked them. He's far more convincing when laying out general boasts and talking about street life. Apart from that one uncharacteristic track, All or Nothing isn't much of a change from the past few Fat Joe albums, with some durable hard-hitters rounded out with a handful of tepid R&B crossovers (featuring R. Kelly, Jennifer Lopez, and Mashonda). Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, and Just Blaze kick out some beneficial production work, but Cool & Dre handle several tracks and often match their more famous peers. While Fat Joe has yet to come up with a landmark album, he also hasn't released a dud since his 1993 debut.

Where is it?

Where is the Explicit version? Whats the point of the clean version? There are too many edits.

Fat Joe vs. 50 Cent = Airplane Food vs. Hospital food.

I am a hip hop enthusiast. Usually, if it's more mainstream than Mos Def, I won't bother. But after hearing buzz about this album, then seeing it in the employee's choice on the iTunes main page, I decided to sample it and see if there really was anything to it. I had no idea Fat Joe hates 50 Cent almost as much as me, but when i found out, I was really prepared to like it. Now, as much as I hate 50, Curtis is definatley stronger than Joe. After listening to every track, Fat Joe comes off as the least original sound in the game. The beats are generic and uninspired and his rap style is bland and weak. He'd make a great member of a rap crew, or maybe as a guest appearance on whatever tripe Eminem is pushing these days, but he simply isn't strong enough to carry an album by himself. Picking between 50 and Joe is like picking between airplane food and hospital food. No, more like choosing either stomach cancer or brain cancer. One of them is the lesser of two evils, but it mostly comes down to minor personal preferences. The nicest thing I can say about him is that he isn't 50 Cent, but he's still a generic, wishy-washy, flash-in-the-pan, hack and I believe you actually get stupider as you listen to his album.

Fat Joe went to town on this one

This cd leaves nothing behind, i accidentally ruined the last half of my cd because it got caught somewhere in my cars dash and got scratched to death. I went out and bought another copy. Now im not sayin we should all love this guy, but his style is really his own, u gotta give him some respect.

Latino rapper Fat Joe (aka Fat Joe da Gangsta, Joey Crack, and his real name, Joe Cartagena) was raised in the South Bronx area of New York.
