The Artist: Fat Joe
The Original: 2001's Jealous Ones Still Envy (J.O.S.E.)
The Sequel: 2009's Jealous Ones Still Envy 2 (J.O.S.E. 2)
The Review: Commercially, the 2001 version of J.O.S.E. was the one for Joey Crack. From "We Thuggin" to the breakthrough hit, "What's Luv?" Joe made his mark on the game with that album. With J.O.S.E. 2, he tried to emulate that feeling by selecting a host of commercially-viable producers (Jim Jonsin, Rico Love and—gulp—Ron Browz, included) and failed miserably by deviating away from his core fan base. J.O.S.E. 2 was too much of a bad thing.
