Fat Joe is out here “Ballin'” folks. His latest record, was premiered by Funkmaster Flex on Hot 97 today, and features Wiz Khalifa.
The production alone– courtesy of Illa the Producer and Infared— is good enough to make “Ballin'” worthy of a head bob, but it also shows how well the Terror Squad leader works with others. Teyanna Taylor rounds out the cipher pulling double duty with a verse, and the hook. Joey Crack picks up the baton initially mimicking Khalifa’s extra-enunciated delivery, before settling into his own signature flow.
Next up, the Pittsburgh native gets his turn to spit about the luxurious fruits of his labor, while Joe closes the record with another verse (and possible dig at Nicki Minaj–listen at the 3:30 mark).
Collaborations tend to be Joe’s strong point, as is the case here. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Take a listen to “Ballin'” below, and be on the lookout for his Darkside 3 release.
