Editorial Reviews

Explicit Version. The Elephant In The Room features cameos from J. Holiday, Lil Wayne, Diddy, DJ Khaled, Rick Ross with production by Grammy Award winning Scott Storch, Danja Handz, DJ Khaled and many more. The lead single 'I Won't Tell', featuring J. Holiday, was produced by Grind Music and is shaping up to be another smash single for Fat Joe. He has managed to do something that proves nearly impossible for most artists today; remain relevant with the youth after over a decade of making music. Just recently being nominated for a Grammy for best performance by a duo or group.

Just 16 months since his last album, Fat Joe returns with his 8th solo album, and another good one. I have 6 of his albums, and half I'd give 4 stars half I'd give 4.5 stars. Short like most of his albums with only 12 songs, you get 1 almost classic, 5 ar eok, and the other 6 are good. Guests aren't too heavy, rapping on just 2 of the songs and doing the hooks on about half. Production is decent, not as good as he usually has but still pretty good. LV & Sean C, and Street Runner each do 2 songs, Cool & Dre, Steve Morales & J Starz, Danja, Scott Storch, DJ Premier, Alchemist, Swizz Beats, and DJ Khaled each do 1 song. A nice album for his fans to have, not his est but still worth while.

#1 - 8.5
#2 - 8.5 (f/ Plies & dre -- nice beat)
#3 - 7 (f/ LiL Wayne)
#4 - 7 (f/ Jackie Rubio)
#5 - 9.5 (f/ Poo Bear -- tight beat)
#6 - 7 (party track)
#7 - 8.5 (f/ J Holiday)
#8 - 8
#9 - 7.5 (f/ Oepra Steve)
#10 - 8 (f/ Poo Bear)
#11 - 8 (f/ KRS-One)
#12 - 7.5

After being dropped from a major record label a few years ago Fat Joe thinks he deserves a better fortune, thus using the English Idiom "Elephant in the Room" which refers to something big going on but still getting ignored by the audience. Fat Joe has always been a skilled rapper but quite often the music hasn't been too hot (read commercial). His last album was better then usual and featured the Scott Storch produced hit single "Make It Rain" with Lil Wayne but it still went rather overlooked which is the problem compared to more commercial but less skilled rappers such as 50 Cent. On this effort, Fat Joe continues with more tough gangsta rap and if you've heard his other albums you know what to expect. Fammiliar faces on the producer side aswell with Scott Storch, Cool & Dre and Danja to mention a few. The truth is that Fat Joe's lyrics are on point but the production isn't actually as steller, the complete opposite to Rick Ross's recent album, but Fat Joe doesn't look for sympathy or attention he looks for respect and acknowledgement for sticking around for so long and for being a crucial part in the Hip Hop community. If you apreciate the man's work, take another look here.

It all starts with a song called "The Fugitive" which is some kind of intro cause he raps non stop (like freestylin) and the rhymes here are some of the best I've heard in ages. It also need to be mentioned that he uses a few foul words here to prove that he don't give a damn. "You Ain't Sayin' Nothin" from Cool & Dre feature wannabe rapper Dre and yet to called himself rapper Plies, the song itself really isn't that special. The title refers to "not saying nuthin" if it aint about money. Listen to Rick Ross last album and you get why.

This guy is so underrated. I loved it on the first listen, 4 stars. No instant classics or major hit singles here, though I personally like a few of the tracks quite a bit... lyrics are tight, some good production from some well known producers (Scott Storch, Swiss Beatz, Danja, DJ Kaled). Pretty up tempo tracks... one of those CDs you can throw in & listen to all the way through from start to finish over & over again.

Do you know Fat Joe got the name Joey Crack not because of his drug dealing ways but because when he was a kid everytime he bent over you could see his butt crack! Lol Just a random fact. But one the real Fat Joe has been one of the most consistant artist over the last 15 years. He has so many 4 mic albums in my opinion, although he may not be the best rapper around. The Dj Premier track "That White" is just crazy Ill! Just straight NY hip-hop. The single w/ J. Holiday is good not great as well. The rest of the songs are done by the runners/Cool &Dre/Dj Khaleed(Beat Novacane) & they did great here, as the always do for Joey Crack. If You like good music make this purchase, plus this album is waaaaaay better than CURTIS! 50 Cent is a clown at times!

Ok so I'm a huge 50 fan but I'm above all a fan of rap music first I give everything a chance. So with all 50 Joe beef aside this CD is GREAT! The production is fire the lyrics are dope and above all it's just damn good rap music. So if you a Joe fan you gonna love this if you a hater get ya mind right and don't juge artist by anything other than talent.If you a fan of East coast rap this is a hott buy!

The Elephant In The Room truly has the balance that he had on albums like, J.O.S.E., All or Nothing, and his last great album, Me, Myself, & I. The album contains a lot of great collibrations with rappers and producers. Fat Joe proves why he is one the best Latin Rappers in the game.

I'll be honest... sadly i didnt expect this album to be what it was. On a better note, unlike his previous albums, every track in "Elephant" had a certain allure to it. I really enjoyed this album. Cocababy was wicked!!! 300 Brolic was Hot!!! To finish this review off I'd like to say, being a life long Bronxian, having walked by Fat Joe several times in several different Bronx neighborhoods, It makes me feel proud to know that a fellow Rican is really letting the world know just what it means to be from the Bronx! Things dont last forever. From Harry's Sporting Goods to Jimmys Bronx Cafe the Terror Squad is moving along just nicely!!!!
