When Fat Joe released his eighth album, The Elephant In The Room, he hoped to finally secure his well-deserved spot in hip hop’s upper echelon. Unfortunately, besides the Top 40 hit I Won’t Tell and the Best of the Booth-nominated Ain’t Sayin’ Nuthin (Remix), not much attention or sales followed. Never one to quit, Joey Crack is already planning album #9, which introduces his new alias: Nino “Dubs” DeLuca. On his new buzz single and potential club banger, Winding on Me, Don Cartagena teams up with his frequent collaborator, hip-hop’s top name of ‘08, and the recipient of 14 BotB nominations, Lil Wayne, as well as veteran producer/up-and-coming artist Ron Browz. Though Nino “Dubs” DeLuca has no set release date, the star power brought to bear on Winding on Me could make the record an early candidate for biggest single of ‘09.
