  • Fat Joe Says He Wants To Focus On His New Album And Not 50 Cent

    Two years ago, Fat Joe was talking retirement. His album ``Loyalty'' was selling poorly in comparison to his 2001 platinum breakthrough ``Jealous Ones Still Envy''; he also was lacking the kind of smash hits he had charted in recent years, including ``What's Luv,'' a huge success with Ashanti, and ``We Thuggin''' with R. Kelly.

    And he may have received the ultimate compliment when rap's true king, 50 Cent, deemed him worthy of a rap battle, targeting him along with several others on his new album.

    While the new feud has gotten Fat Joe plenty of attention as he promotes his new album and tour, it's the kind of spotlight he'd rather shine somewhere else. ``What's so weird is I finally got to the point that I want to be in and I'm in the middle of a rap beef,'' Fat Joe says. ``I worked hard to have my moment in the sun, and it seems like a black cloud is trying to cover it.''

    But, he adds, ``the sun will shine through, baby.'' Things are already shining pretty brightly for Joseph Cartagena, a.k.a. Fat Joe, a.k.a. Joey Crack -- the rotund rapper from the Bronx who has always been on the bubble of rap superstardom. As one of rap's first successful Latino rappers (he's of Puerto Rican descent), he's had many of the components of success -- a club smash here, a platinum album there -- but never put together all the components that would put him squarely among rap's elite. For a while, his own career was overshadowed by his protege, Big Pun, who became the first Latin rapper to own a platinum record. After Big Pun died in 2000, some doubted whether Fat Joe could succeed without him -- and Fat Joe doubted whether he even wanted to.

          50 iz no lyricist

          he's just hype because of the beef he starts & the controversy that follows

              he's actually puerto rican and cuban; his puerto rican heritage overshadows his cuban heritage oftentimes...


              fat joe shouldn't focus on that fool 50 cent; he needs to focus on helping get another D.I.T.C. album out there...

                  album.

                          He cannot cope with 50's HUGE popularity,actually none of these dead ass rappers can that's why some fans are mad as hell! Damn I'd be mad if I was backing a dead horse. Good thing I'm backing a WINNER!

                              selling records and being popular makes 50 a winner? i always thought it had to do with making good music...Unfortunately, The Massacre is the worst album i have heard so far this year...

                              "dead ass rappers"------ nice description of 50 when he was busy getting shot and dropped from Columbia Records...where were you people in 99 when 50 was going nowhere fast and people like fat joe and jadakiss were the ones making more money than him? oh wait, 50 wasn't a "winner" then...ok, i understand the logic now...
