Fat Joe - That White

Posted 8 years ago
Tags: Fat Joe
Producer:
DJ Premier
Album:
Elephant In The Room

When you are given the nickname “Joey Crack,” it makes perfect sense to write and record a song entitled, That White.  Right?  Well, off his forthcoming album, Elephant In The Room, the under-appreciated (his term, no ours) MC spits thankful bars about cocaine, while record scratches from prominent producer DJ Premier lace a New York-style beat.  Strangely enough, despite his nickname and the constant references to blow in his music, Fat Joe admitted to DJBooth that he doesn’t do any drugs and rarely drinks.  Regardless of the song’s relationship to real life, listen to Mr. “Crilla Mania” bless the existence of crack rock when his new album drops on March 11.
