Fish ‘N’ Grist Magazine #4 Fat Joe Cover

Fish N Grist Fat Joe CoverOk, so a porn magazine with Fat Joe in it? Let’s all take a deep breath before I open this…. ok well it’s funny, Fat Joe is in a hotel room with a naked Lacey and he has this weird smirk on his face. DJ Quik is interviewed and talks about being a freak. My final thought is Porn plus Fat Joe do not mix.

Beat Down Magazine #6 : Erick Sermon & Fat Joe Cover

Love Erick Sermon on the cover, don’t really care for Fat Joe. Great advertisement for The Fab 5 Let The Madness Begin, O.G.C. and Heltah Skeltha. Article on the Pharcyde and Def Jam. RBX tells of his “escape” from Death Row.

Ozone Magazine #58 : Fat Joe C-Murder Slim Thug Cover

Not impressed with the cover choices. How did DJ Khaled get on back to back covers? Interesting that there is a magazine within this magazine which is Ozone West. Unfortunately all the good articles and featured artists are in this section, including Crooked I and JT The Bigga Figga.

South West Bound Magazine #1 : Gemini Cover

Cover photo could have been shot better, but the choice of an underground artist like Gemini was cool. He’s like the Texas Fat Joe, has a similiar voice, but instead of leaning back, he’s talking about straps. (yeah that rhymed). I liked the Rick Rock article but the Turf Talk Q&A was filled with the same unoriginal questions.

Mass Appeal Magazine #32 : Fat Joe Cover

Very impressive issue. Cover of Fat Joe not bad.  Two of my favorite sections in this issue have to be Dame Dash and Rugged Man together and Remembering ODB. I also liked the article on rap behind bars where they talk about albums and artists recording behind bars, Mac Dre, X-Raided, Tony Yayo, Lifers Group and such.
