Though Fat Joe's had his share of hit singles, don't make the mistake of thinking he's left the streets behind. As the Akon-assisted One continues its journey up the charts, Joey Crack keeps feeding the block with street bangers. On the newly-released Cup Cake, Don Cartagena continues the tradition of using sweet treats as a euphemism for a certain street product (see Wu-Tang's Ice Cream, Snoop's Candy, and Joc's Coffee Shop). Underground Miami Beach rapper Benisour adds to the appeal on his hook and the second verse—in fact, he gets more mic time than he did on his previoustwo Booth features! Shief's boardwork tops Cup Cake off like a good layer of frosting, making the record a tasty treat for those with a sweet tooth for block anthems. J.O.S.E. 2 hits stores and online retailers May 19, and fans should stay tuned to the Booth for Joe's exclusive interview with our own DJ Z earlier that month.
