Fat Joe Earns Platinum Ringtone Plaque

fat_joe1.jpgTerror Squad founder, Fat Joe, has a new plaque he can hang on his wall. No, it’s not for last year’s album — Me, Myself and I — but rather his hit single with Lil Wayne, “Make It Rain,” which has officially sold over 1 million ringtones, according to the RIAA’s Platinum Ringtone program. The song, which reached as high as No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, was one of the biggest hits of Joe’s career. “Fat Joe and Terror Squad Entertainment have been great to work with and are a prime example of what we can bring to a project,” said Neil Levine, Imperial Records Senior VP/GM. “We bring the same pioneering spirit and dedication to quality music at the original Imperial, but with expertise and resources right for independent urban artists today.”

    Damn why is there so much animosity in the rap world? I know this dude isn’t one of the “greats” as people like to say, but duke has been in the game for over ten years. Maybe I’m biased cuz I’m from the BX but damn give duke a small, very small amount of credit. Damn keep it hip-hop not bitch-pop.

  • Grow Up!

If I want to uneducate myself, I read your comments. I got money to make!

  • CMoney

    Fat Joe was ghostwritten by Big Pun & Cuban Link. Listen to his old stuff before Pun died & his stuff after. It’s like he was 2 different rappers.

    Big Pun, Cuban Link, & Triple Seis = The real Terror Squad!

  • http://terrorsquad.com Fat Joe

    Exscuse me haters,

    I just WON.

  • doctor69

    cmoney your right that was the point I was making and danny still a fag

  • http://xxlmag.com 31

    Man, I am not gonna say that I’m right all the time cuz I look at shit a lot differently than everyone else does. In fact, I go against the grain on a lot of topics, however, I back it up. Joe’s been one of the most consistent rappers over the past 15 years. It’s really beyond me that people say he’s wack an shit cuz he’s always on point; in my opinion. As well, the last CD was super hard. ‘One’

  • http://xxlmag.com 31

    And, you wanna compare his flow from 10 years ago to now…? Ok. Listen to Nas back in Tha Firm days and listen to him now. Has anyone insinuated that he was ghost written for? Its like 2 different Nas’s too… Rappers’ style’s and flows change and evolve all the time. Shout out to my man Danny too. ‘One’
    Real Reckognizes Real!!!

  • krills

    atlantic records even said after he left the label that he did not write he was just the face man bacause a rapper in VA claims to have written lean back and did not get paid for it plus when all or nothing came out he claimed (bragged about) he was going to sell 10 mill since fif was comin at him……….what happened? he flew south for the winter and never came back

    ^^^
    Co-Sign nigga…

    Nobody is fuckin wit Killa!!…

    And Joe always has the sickest singles….

    Everybody says Joe is wack and when he drops a single everybody bangs it for like 3-4 months…

    we have to be realistic, hip-hop is dying….

    Maybe not to us but outside the “real hip-hop fans”, nobody really cares about hip-hop anymore…

    Everybody wants to listen to that soft rock type shit, people see hip-hop as a joke now in days. When was the last time you seen some random white girl buying a rap cd… it just doesn’t happen anymore…

    The reason i’m saying all this is because we need to realize that any hip-hop artist thats having any commercial success is whats keeping hip-hop on the map. If it wasn’t for those couple of songs (As wack as they may be) that are on the radio then hip-hop would be irrelevant now in days…

    So respect dudes like Joe that actually get hits on the radio and keep hip-hop relevant in ’07….

    Ya dig??

  • http://www.xxlmag.com EReal
