The last time I spoke about Fat Joe here, the result wasn’t positive. However, one thing you or I won’t call Joe is a quitter. The man who gave the world Big Pun is preparing for the explosion of his new effort, The Darkside. As long as Crack doesn’t start doing this again, I’ll listen. On “Slow Down”, the BX don enlists Jeezy, who has been quite busy lately, to supply the hook and a guest verse. It’ll be interesting to see how this does on the charts, but overall it is a solid first offering.
In turn, the real star of the record is the producer, Scoop DeVille. The 22-year-old is poised to become one of the breakout producers in 2010 with “I Wanna Rock” already firmly planted in his portfolio. Add this Soul II Soul sampled cut and Scoop’s future is looking quite bright.
It’s probably too early to speculate, but Jada would sound right at home on this beat if a remix were to ever surface. Just a suggestion.[audio:http://uproxx.files.wordpress.com/2010/02/fat_joe_feat._young_jeezy-slow_down_ha_ha.mp3%5D
