Eine weitere Legende war zu Gast beim Tiny Desk Concert, wenn auch in eher ungewohntem Setting. Mitsamt Band, Sängerin und DJ performt Fat Joe 5 Songs in seinem eigenen Store UP NYC.

Ich persönlich hätte noch ein zwei andere Songs aus seinem epischen Katalog gewählt, bin mit My Lifestyle, What’s Luv?, Lean Back, Sunshine (The Light) und All The Way Up auch gut bedient.

A founding member of the D.I.T.C. (Diggin‘ In the Crates) crew, Fat Joe Da Gangsta has managed to last nearly 30 years and multiple generations in the rap game without ever giving up his lease on the top of the charts. That’s no easy feat for a rapper who came out of the early ’90s, and positively trailblazing for a Puerto Rican emcee without any notable predecessors. That catalog is on display in a medley of hits performed for his Tiny Desk (home) concert with the Terror Squad Band, and it’s clear that Joe is amped up rocking with a live outfit that keeps the essence of his hits while infusing some salsa that reps his Latino heritage.
