What in the stick-a-fork-in the-South-Bronx is going on?
I can't say much about the lyrics. But whose brilliant idea was it to use the late great, often-imitated-never-duplicated Jimi Hendrix for sampling?
It seems that with Fat Joe's name being, well, "Joe," that this shouldn't come off as fascinating. But Fat Joe has been riding the Dirty South bandwagon so long that this took me by surprise. Mostly because he'd never get props for this in the South being that most of the teeny boppers don't relate to real music-- just simple beats with two-note melodies. And losing points in the South is something I presume Joe would dread, being that he goes harder for that region than (what's supposed to be) his own.
Also, that joint "One" is growing on me. I don't know if I should be admitting that. I'll blame it on radio play.

I told myself to stop listening to Hot 97. But if it wasn't for Hot, I wouldn't have heard this:
Deading that "Arab Money" ish, looks like Busta got back in that booth. This joint is whassup! Damn fam. Looks like that blog I did Friday left a lot of the termites in the dust, 'cause today I don't have anyone to sh*t on. Must be that Mr. Softee ice cream truck parked in front of the building hours of the night.
