Fat Joe




I learned of Fat Joe long before he would release Represent (1993). He made little on-air appearances on what I think were DJ Red Alert radio show recordings I'd bring back to Montreal from a New York trip. He had my support for that album because he was a Bronx MC surrounded by artists/producers I looked for.



In 1994, with his The Shit Is Real (DJ Premier Remix), there was something slightly different about him and I could barely put my finger on it. I was too caught up with the beat to fully realize he was improving in every sense of the word.



I had the chance to buy Fat Joe's Represent CD but either left it behind because of the price or the decision to take another in its place. I somewhat regret that decision now because I haven't seen a copy of that CD since.
