Hip Hop veteran Fat Joe just released his album, “Family Ties”. Joe has stated that this is his final album. With a catalog of hits under his belt, Joe brings along consistent collaborating producer Dre (of the production duo Cool & Dre) along for his last solo outing. The project’s first single, “Yes”, featured fellow Bronx, NY native Cardi B and generated some waves for the projects release.
His latest visual offering from the album is in the form of the single “Deep”. Under the direction of Irv Gotti (who is still riding high off the success of two critically acclaimed seasons of “Tales” on BET), the video paints a picture to go along with the songs lyrics. Following the storyline of unfaithful love and the emotions involved, the video serves as a short film. With cameos from NORE, Dre, and Irv Gotti, this one is looking like another one to add to Joey Crack’s list of bangers.

Rick Ross has broken through the barriers that artists with ten years plus in the rap game usually face. The ability to continue to appeal to the listening audience of hip hop fans whose attention moves with the latest sound. Ross proves yet again to have the ear for beats when it comes to his latest release, “Port of Miami 2”. Without sounding dated or rusty, Ricky Rozay is still in his bag with the lyrics and delivery as it fits sonically over a great body of work. Definitely a great follow up to his 2017 release, “Rather You Than Me” and befitting to be the sequel to his 2006 debut release “Port of Miami”. #PRESSPLAY
