Fat Joe Brings out All-Star Line-Up At NYC Release Party


With 17 years deep in the game Bronx rapper Fat Joe has amassed notable radio hits and a gang of underground bangers. His performance last night (7/28) at NYC hotspot S.O.B.’s was all about the later.
In celebration of the release of his 10th solo album, The Darkside Vol. 1, the Terror Squad leader urged any fans expecting to hear the radio friendly “Lean Back,” “Make It Rain” and “We Thuggin’” to exit the club. Instead Joe ran through an assortment of his underground classics for a performance. After starting off with ‘Heavenly Father” — the Lil Wayne-assisted cut off of his new album, Joe tore through his tried and true catalog. He rocked songs like 1993’s “Flow Joe,” ‘Firewater,” “Success” and “Shit is Real (Remix),” “John Blaze,” ‘My Lifestyle” and “Gangsta.”
In tribute to his fallen protégé Big Pun, Joe invited Joell Ortiz to help with “Deep Cover (Twinz ’98).” Joell’s homage paying performance opened the floodgates for more special guests as Cook Coke Crack rocked with Redman [watch below], Diamond D, M.O.P., Buckshot, Jeru Da Damaja and Public Enemy’s S1Ws who danced to an intro for Joe’s latest P.E.-inspired single “No Problems.”
By the end of the night Fat Joe took his rightful place as an N.Y. giant proving that while the mainstream glitz and glamour is nice, the underground’s dark side should never be ignored.

Damn Joe, who missed this? Hopefully he’s done with touring bullshit clubs in Europe.
