Nearly three years since his last project, Fat Joe returns with his final album Family Ties, a joint effort with Dre of Cool & Dre.
The Bronx icon assembles a star-studded lineup for the 11 tracks, which he calls the “most anticipated release of my career.” The guest list includes Lil Wayne, Remy Ma, Ty Dolla $ign, and Cardi B, who appears on the Anuel AA-assisted single “YES.” Eminem and Mary J. Blige join forces on the powerhouse collaboration “Lord Above,” while Bryson Tiller and Jeremih bring their soulful sound to “Hands on You.”
The album, Joe’s first since 2017’s Plata O Plomo with Remy Ma, may be his last. “We got a classic,” he told Billboard. “This album, I’m calling it a Hamilton, to where 10 years from now we could probably make a play of it. Very Chronic-ish. I’m really proud of this album. If this is the last thing you guys ever hear from me, I’m leaving on a high note for real.”
