Crack is back. Fat Joe links with fellow New Yorker Troy Ave for “How U Luv Dat.” Over a soulful beat, Joey boasts about swimming in Givenchy trunks and pouring champagne until he capsizes, while Troy gets his shine on.
During Troy’s show in November, Joe co-signed the 29-year-old rapper. “I don’t co-sign too many ni**as, but I co-sign Troy Ave,” said Joe. “It’s like real ni**as is extinct in this fu**in’ business right now. If you ain’t a pussy ni**a with a skateboard, you can’t get on these days. I salute a real ni**a right here. That’s the type of ni**a I want representing New York City.”
In addition to music, the Don Cartagena has scored a gig as president of the urban and Latino division of Market America, an Internet-based marketing company.
