Fat Joe ft. Pleasure P & Rico Love - Aloha
Of all the U.S.’ hip-hop hotspots, Miami is undoubtedly the best vacation destination—take it from Fat Joe, who, though he hails from the Bronx, splits his time between NYC and the MIA (thank you very much, Khaled). It seems that Joe’s time in the Panhandle State has given him a taste for other tropical climates; on the newest potential single off J.O.S.E. 2 (dropping September 22), Joe and two fellow 305 residents take a 6,160-mile journey to say Aloha to the female denizens of sunny Hawaii. Though many will point to Pleasure P‘s Shone-esque hook as this track’s highlight, the main attraction for this writer was hearing Rico Love rap again—despite two-and-a-half years in the strictly-songwriting mode, he hasn’t lost a single step. Complete with a beat by Division One star producers EHood and E2, this cut will doubtless meet a Booth reception as warm as the weather in the state that inspired it.
