Fat Joe Blames Album Pushback On Lack Of Promotion

The latest album from Fat Joe, J.O.S.E. 2, missed out on its Super Tuesday release date due to insufficient promotion, according to a statement from the rapper issued to XXLMag.com.

“We wanted to make sure we had a second single in the marketplace,” Joey Crack said. “We dropped the first single with Akon and will be coming soon with the T-Pain joint.”

The album was scheduled for release last Tuesday (May 19) along with new discs by Eminem, Busta Rhymes, Method Man & Redman, and DJ Drama. The Terror Squad leader initially addressed the album delay in a Twitter message, placing the blame on a sample clearance issue.

Still without a release date as of press time, the sequel to Joe’s 2001 platinum album will also feature cameos from Lil Wayne, Ron Browz, Lil Kim, Fabolous, Ne-Yo, and Raekwon.

Stay tuned to XXL as the story develops. – Devin Chanda

    yaaaaaaaaaaawn,.. bum nigga always making excuses. The only thing this washed up wannabe Big PUN says is he only makes hits, and50 hasnt made a hit record in years. Um,… lets see, Joe only has 2 hits. Lean Back & Make It Rain which both songs were hot because of the featured artist on dem.
    When everyone thinks of Make It Rain, who is the 1st person in there mind? Lil’Wayne. Not this clown who can’t carry a song on his own.
    1st the Akon song just flopped w/ no radio. And now he goes to the predictable T-Pain? Come on nigga.
    You got run out of NY, now you a Miami d!ck rider who will brick again.

      FAT JOE YOU FAT GREASY PUERTO RICAN PIECE OF SHIT THE ALBUM WAS PUSHED BACK BECAUSE YOUR MUSIC IS WACK, NOBODY WANTS TO BUY YOUR ALBUMS, AND THE RECORD LABEL DOESNT WANT TO LOSE MONEY BY PUTTING OUT YOUR GARBAGE. YOU JUST DONT GET IT DO YOU JOEY BUTTCRACK?

  • musicman2117

    What??? No haters???? No Joey Crack haters??? No one on here saying how no one cares about Joe and his album. No one talking about how 50 buried him??? No one dissing one of the last true lyracists in the game??? I AM SHOCKED!!!!

    • MO

      WHEN DID FAT JOE BECOME A LYRICIST? DUDE HAS BEEN SPITTING KINDERGARDEN RHYMES FOR YEARS, DONT CONFUSE HIM WITH BIG PUN. RAPPING WISE JOE IS BIG PUN’S SON FORVEVER IN THIS SHIT.

  • merchandise

    • Jamal7Mile

      What’s up Pierzy?

      Yup, I’m thinking the same thing. But I have a lot of hope that EVERYONE will be stepping it up this year. Rock The Bells has a pretty tight line-up this summer! That should be enough incentive for everyone to stop screwing around and tighten up their game.

    Of course there aint no haters yet ngga, u dropped the second comment! U crazy if u can even ponder joe be’in the last true lyricsist!

  • BeerGangsta

    What difference does it makes. Joe is not a big seller anyway. Fucker went to a club in Memphis. Did not here his song at all. He call Scott Starch to make a Southern Beat for him. The song was making rain on them with Wayne. Single did well. Album did nothing as usually. Joe only went Platium one time on a Album.

  • Epinz

    Oh! Look who it is..rword aka rick ross. This nigga only comments on 50 or rick ross related shit. This ngga was tellin nggaz to squat and cough!lol!!!

  • E-Hustle

    Rword, go kill yo self. We all know u Officer Ricky posting hate on here. We know you hate on Marshall because he is back to reclaim his spot on top. Dont hate because your washed up remix diss to 50 Cent didnt get no play anywhere.
    Yo Ricky, how dem album sales looking for you? You been out a whole month and havent even broke 300k! ROFLMAO!!!! Your not going Gold, and watch your face dude, it might turn green from those counterfit fake ass LV shades you got called out on by no other than the LV company!!!

    Oh, and musicman2117, we know your Joey up in there waiting to see what people are going to say about you and your mediocre carrer.
    What was it that Yayo said, you putting out double plastic CD sales! =D

    Relapse that shit! Marshall dedicated the hook/chorus to Rword & musicman on the song “Medicine Ball”.

  • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

    Man, that’s a bogus excuse.

    Who got promotion this year? Ross, & his was all 50 propaganda. I didn’t see any Blackout!2 posters. No album in-store signings. None of that “street team” shit from the 90′s, where folks got paid to make sure the world knew an album was dropping. Same for Bussa Bus, so that argument is non-valid.

    He would have been better off saying his dog had the swine flu & needed his attention or Big Pun came to him in a dream & told him “The world ain’t ready yet!”.

    That aside, there’s no way in Hell on Earth or down below that Joe is by any means a lyricist. He’s a decent rap dude with a somewhat credible career. If his shits hot, I’ll check it out. That seems to be the way it goes nowadays. No more excuses Mr. Cartegena.

    • EReal

      He would have been better off saying his dog had the swine flu & needed his attention or Big Pun came to him in a dream & told him “The world ain’t ready yet!”.

    So what’s the excuse gonna be when this garbage album finally flops? All he’s doing is postponing a loss. Just get it over with already. No amount of guest appearances is gonna help the album.

        Peace fam and good lookin on the dap. I copped that Red and Meth joint, not enough time to soak it in (Em got my attention right now, especially Insane) Even copped that new Sheek Louch (big D-Block fan) and Freeway’s new shit. Haven’t listened to either of ‘em yet so if someone could give me a quick review that would be greatly appreciated.

    @ E-Hustle:

    It is dumb fucks like you that have no respect for the OG’s in the game. You are one of those fickle ass “what has he done for me lately” type niggas that have no respect for the artists who paved tha way. If you don’t like Joe, cool…..dont buy his shit! But im tired of niggas dissin someone just cause they don’t like their music. U talk about Eminem, if it wasnt for Joe and the other OG’s like him, THERE WOULD BE NO EMINEM. Pay ya respect, b*tch!

    @Epins:

    I aint even gonna say too much to you…..you probably one of those cats that think Bow Wow, Soulja Boy, Asher Roth, and all those other non lyrical, non creative, boring, non rapping, unimaginative, gotta have T-Pain or Akon in every song, TRUE hip hop killing cats that think those c*nts that I just named as well as a lot of others are the lyracists in game right now. Do ya homework, boy…..

  • Nate

    What’s wrong Joey? Are we supposed to believe you are a rookie artist and don’t know how to clear a sample? No extra good songs to replace it?

    No buzz huh? NO promotion huh? Doing those 10-20K shows that you brag about all the time…
    still not enough buzz…. I think you should just manage boy band R&b groups. That’s more like your niche.

    Time to go back and listen to some albums better than yours. THIS WEEK alone that would be Em, Busta, Meth/Red/

    You are NOT NEEDED in this game, lame. Go do a Benzino and start a faggot mag like US weekly. What’s it called HIP HOP WEEKLY?
    Go try and be a actor again. That’s one thing you can do- ACT….CRACK!

    i think yall should give fat joe a chance
    homeboy still writin lyrics n still kickin it in the game at least he is out there doin something instead of people like me who just talk about rapping and never get out there and actually do it yeah its hard to make a record anytime so u gotta give him props for dropping anything and if he writes lyrics then he is a lyricist also he is involved with terror squad everyone knows that and he made a dope song with ashanti and another dope one with jlo make it rain with little wayne sounds like a good song have to check it out its funny cuz fat joes last album is prophetic of this current one jealous ones still envy and yeah they still envying his success whatever he does so quit hating and start appreciatin thats all im saying and dont hate on him just cuz hes puerto rican thats some nasty beef when its racially based hate on his skills if u want but not his skin color hes still killing the game jose forever baby :)

  • joe farver

    this shit be funny how everybody just be on some hating shit. whether fat joe sells double wood or double platinum let the man be. he got a deal so what the album got pushed back. some record exec thinks he’s relevant. other artist continue to work with him. so what he went to miami and left new york. it’s called following the paper trail. so tell me whats your problem why your album aint out why your album got pushed back, why you aint get no promo tour. no radio play no publishing rights. i mean it’s pathetic when all you do is hate on another man or woman who try to do what they love. the main mofo’s that hate are the ones with the album of the person they hating. i’m a fat joe fan of the jealous one envy and don cartagena cd’s. and a few songs off of some of the other cds.

  • Epinz

    Its funny u bring up t pain and akon when fat joe said that he wanted to put out the second single out with t pain. His first was with akon! So what u talkin bout?

That’s like trick daddy doin songs with boot camp or m.o.p. The south wouldn’t like that shit and would feel the same way up north nggaz feel bout far joe now.

  • latino heat

    i’m one of the few non Fat Joe haters on here, but come on Joe. “we put out the Akon single now were gonna do the T-Pain single”, damn rap is so paint by numbers these days.

  • balaramesh

    fat joe sucks plain and simple.

    i was rooting for this dude to excell in the early 2000s when he was crying in every interview to someone to buy his album.

    songwise, fat joe is maybe 5/200,010

    plus he sold his soul many years ago when he snuffed his man cuban link.

    all of that down south cock sucking has gotten him absolutely no where the past three years. he can make 63 more songs with wayne, tpain and akon and he will never break 300k again.

    it was bad enough that fiddy gave him an efficient burial maybe 2 years ago.

    to make matters worse, the wife of pun is completely broke. but hey, i guess i do my “twins” wife the same way

    • Afi K. James

      That’s because triple seis should have warned cuban link about joe, but cuban didn’t listen, so it’s his own fault that he stayed and who gives a fuck about fiddy, he’s no better than fat hoe, look what he did to his own crew and hip-hop in general turned it into a horrible disaster, sure he sells records, but he has an all time record of the worst music in 20 years. (not mixtapes, but stupid albums)
      and it’s not joe’s responsibility to take care of pun’s family, it’s pun responsibility.

  • Keyser Soze

    I cant stand the way everyone has no respect today. I’m 32 and hardly ever write on these types of things, but people out there are fucken crazy! I grew up in the NY scene despite being from Jersey. Fat Joe is THE HARDEST Gangsta Rapper from NY, as far as old school street cred. Alot of people dont know about the ’80′s NY gangs, TS in the BX, BEFORE they were a rap crew. And he gets nicer every album. They should do a real movie on Joe Crack. People just REALLY have no idea how much influence he’s had in Hip Hop.

  • Afi K. James

    And i’m sick of tired of hip-hop always about who’s real or not or about street credibility, what about the music for christ sakes, did anyone forget about that.

  • O

    niggas clicked on a link to straight up hate on a nigga too many of ya mothafuckas have female tendecies. i clicked on the link to READ on something i found interestin Fat Joe is a legend who put in his work in the game already either ya niggas is too young or dumb and know nothing about Hip Hop , why would ppl click on a link if they dont like the guy to begin with then leave hate comments like he broke your hearts, Thats bitch ass characteristics.

    Fuck that. He knows if he would have came out the same day as Eminem,Busta and Meth and Red he maybe would have sold 10,000 units the first week. Now he’s playing the typical blaime the lable trick. He knew he had to have a strong 2nd single so why release the Akon joint in february and still not have the T-pain joint ready to go asap. He’s Fatjoe he can’t ride a 1st single for 6 monthes he’s not the Fuckin Jonas brothers Lol he has to fight to sell 250,000

  • http://aquintana777@yahoo.com Anthony Q

    Everybody commenting on how Fat Joe is so bad, why are you even posting here? Why waste your time on him then.

    It seems that you guys are just trying to persuade everyone else to consider him “the worst rapper”, and prevent him from selling any records. If he’s as bad as you guys say, then he wont sell, so stop trying to put him down.

    Stop stating your opinions, “Fat Joe is the best, I love him”, or “50 is way better!”

    Bottom Line, Fat Joe was a very successful rapper when he started, and not just for 2 albums. While each album got more “commercial”, he still kept it street. That is until “All of Nothing/ Me Myself and I”.

    Fat Joe has a lot of accomplishments in his career, and we all know that he’s changed his style. Just think of how everyone bumped his shit back in the day. (that is if you can remember that far back, bcuz most of you posting on here are just a bunch of young kids with nothing better to do, than to ride dick, whether it be Fat Joe or 50.)

    We all know he might never put out another Don Cartegena or J.O.E., but he’s not the only rapper this happened to as you all make it seem.
    Get Rich or Die Tryin was great, rite? Wtf happened to Massacre and Curtis? They had a couple good street hits and the rest filled with radio shit. All 50 has over Fat Joe is a lot of promotion and hype from young kids, just like Lil Wayne, it doesnt make him good. Just means he can sell records that arent good.

    Fat Joe doesnt sell anymore? Ok thats true, and we all know it, but what about Nas? Nas is THE BEST mc/lyricist/rapper alive. And thats a fact, but he doesnt sell platinum anymore. Im not comparing Joey to Nas at all, he’s nowhere near Nas. lol

    If you never heard his old albums then dont say that hes trash based on his new stuff only. Look at his ENTIRE career, and youll see that he’s just like mostly everyother rapper.
    Jay Z was the SHIT, what happened to him? Same like Joe.
    Faboulous was the SHIT, what happened to him, same as Joe.
    50 was the SHIT, what happened to him, same as Joe.
    Get the drift?

    Main point Joey changed, if you dont like him now, cool dont cop JOSE 2. Im not a fan of this new shit from Fat Joe, i think he needs to go back to his NY shit or retire for real. Just stop all the hating. Hiphop isnt supposed to be about commotion, its about who you are and what you like. If Fat Joe wants to keep putting out this weak southern shit, leave him alone. If he sells, he sells, stop trying to persuade niggas to not cop his album bcuz you dont like it.
    Everyones always trying to put others down to better themselves, Jay Z tried it, but he got murdered. lol
    50 wants to do it, let him have fun, ur not him though.

  • RDS

    Up until the last album Joey’s consistency was refreshing. He was improving with every album. All or Nothing was the peak of his music, but about only half that was really worth checking. I like him but he tries too hard to break through. He had already broken through with the Ashanti joint and that was, what? 3, 4 albums ago? I remember the first time I heard Safe 2 Say and I’m like “that CAN’T be Joey”. I’d forgotten J.O.S.E. 2 was coming out but I might have a listen to see if it’s worth it (yeah, I still buy albums from time to time).

    Fat Joe doesnt sell anymore? Ok thats true, and we all know it, but what about Nas? Nas is THE BEST mc/lyricist/rapper alive. And thats a fact, but he doesnt sell platinum anymore. Im not comparing Joey to Nas at all, he’s nowhere near Nas. lol

    If you never heard his old albums then dont say that hes trash based on his new stuff only. Look at his ENTIRE career, and youll see that he’s just like mostly everyother rapper.
    Jay Z was the SHIT, what happened to him? Same like Joe.
    Faboulous was the SHIT, what happened to him, same as Joe.
    50 was the SHIT, what happened to him, same as Joe.
    Get the drift?

    Main point Joey changed, if you dont like him now, cool dont cop JOSE 2. Im not a fan of this new shit from Fat Joe, i think he needs to go back to his NY shit or retire for real. Just stop all the hating. Hiphop isnt supposed to be about commotion, its about who you are and what you like. If Fat Joe wants to keep putting out this weak southern shit, leave him alone. If he sells, he sells, stop trying to persuade niggas to not cop his album bcuz you dont like it.
    Everyones always trying to put others down to better themselves, Jay Z tried it, but he got murdered. lol
    50 wants to do it, let him have fun, ur not him though.
