Royce 5’9” Thinks Fat Joe Needs to Get Recognized for Being the Best at What He Does
Fat Joe has been doing his thing in the rap game for 25 years, and with over a dozen albums under his belt, he is definitely OG status. But Royce 5'9" thinks he should be getting more than just props as an elder statesman in hip-hop, and should be recognized as one of the best to ever do it in his field.
As an elite lyricist himself, and also having worked with Eminem, Royce is speaking from a place of knowledge as he gives Joey Crack his flowers while he is still alive. "When is Fat Joe gon get recognized as being the best EVER at what he does?" the Detroit MC posed on Twitter, yesterday (March 4). "Enough is enough. That longevity doesn’t lie...."
Apparently feeling the sentiment, Logic chimed in, “'The enemy' favorite Joe verse of all time!"
Joe jumped in the game in 1993, with the album, Represent, and has been a force in New York City rap ever since. Showing and proving he can still make hits to this day, he put out the Billboard Top 40 banger, "All the Way Up," featuring Remy Ma and French Montana last year, along with the joint album with Remy, Plato O Plomo.
Joe is currently working on his 11th solo album, Family Ties.
