Inspired by Pablo Escobar’s infamous proposition of money or lead, Joey Crack and Reminisce deliver 12 tracks, including the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Money Showers,” “Heartbreak” featuring The-Dream, and “Cookin” with French Montana and RySoValid.
The guest list also includes three appearances from Kent Jones (“Swear to God,” “Spaghetti,” and “How Can I Forget”), as well as guest spots Sevyn Streeter and BJ the Chicago Kid (“Go Crazy”) and Kat Dahlia (“Warning”).
Recently, Don Cartagena praised the album for staying true to New York. “This album is a masterpiece,” he said. “This New York area, y’all better support this. Y’all ain’t had an album come out like this in years…You ain’t had no major New York album come out like this in years, bro, with the quality and the hits that’s on this, and we got the mud. And we got the dirtiest rhymes, lyrics, hardcore stuff too. This album is complete from A-Z. It’s crazy, bro.”
The album is also a reunion for Joe and Remy, who went through their ups and downs after collaborating on the massive success of Terror Squad’s 2004 hit “Lean Back.” Reunited, the duo announced their joint project in March of last year.
By then, Joe said the album was done and more recently, he confirmed that it’s been ready for release for months. “The album was done before we put out ‘All the Way Up,'” he said. “The problem with the album was that my distributor was like, ‘We’re selling 50,000 singles a week. Why do you wanna put out the album? You going double platinum. You already killin’ and makin’ money.’ That was the fight.”
