Reppin' Time: BX

Fat Joe- The Elephant in the Room [The Samples]
Fat Joe- Me, Myself & I [The Samples]

I definitely haven't been repping the Bronx enough on this blog. I'll try to make up for it with this two-fer. As I told Ivan the other day, Fat Joe, in my opinion, is the only remaining commercially relevant rapper the Bronx has going for it. I didn't always like him but his last two albums have made a believer of me. He is not the most talented rapper out there, but he's a hard worker and you can tell that he is putting in the effort, even if the result isn't always pretty. He's always had a good ear for beats and these sample sets bear that out. Some of these joints will simply blow your minds ("Fugitive From Love" and "Women of the Ghetto" especially).

A shout out goes to Thomas for his help on both sets.
