Fat Joe: James Patrick Cooper / Retna

All or Nothing

type
  • Movie
genre

Fat Joe casts himself as a tough guy with a heart of gold. True, he raps about blown-out brains lying on someone’s stomach, but he also takes time to big up his late pal Big Pun and deliver a heartwarming ballad on the virtues of loyalty in tough times. Unfortunately, he can’t quite integrate his machismo and vulnerability into seamless artistry. On All or Nothing the result is a choppy gangsta party record, laced with sweetness.
