May 12th, 2011 4:00pm EDT
Fast Five
Various Artists, Fast Five Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (ABKCO)

October 22nd, 2006 9:00am EDT
Fat Joe
A little more than 13 years after releasing his debut LP, Represent, hip-hop legend Fat Joe is definitely certified as one of the last of a dying breed. While many of his pioneering peers from that golden era haven't since gracefully bowed out of the game, Joe has constantly found ways to evolve over the years as not only one of the premier MCs in rap, but as an astute businessman with an ear for finding and cultivating talent such as fellow legend Big Pun, female fire starter Remy Ma and R&B crooner Tony Sunshine. Joe's business savvy has surpassed working only in music as he has also secu...
