Fat Joe featuring Wiz Khalifa & Teyana Taylor “Ballin'”

fat joe ft. wiz khalifa & teyana taylor - ballin'

For hip hop veteran Fat Joe, the rap game struggle has been MIGHTY real in the past twelve months, with not one, or two, but three singles with pretty strong line-ups (“Instagram That Hoe” featuring Rick Ross and Juicy J; “Yellow Tape” w/ French Montana, Lil’ Wayne, A$AP Rocky and DJ Khaled; the should-have-been last summer jam “Pride N’ Joy” featuring…well, everybody) failing to make the jump to hit status, leaving his still-untitled eleventh studio effort both buzz-less and lacking an official release date.

The newly dropped “Ballin'” is Joe’s latest attempt to snatch some airwave attention back his way, and like pretty much all of his previous singles, it registers as a pretty solid braggadocio East Coast rap banger, checking off the necessary boxes in terms of catchy enough beat, hook and rhymes (and boasting nice guest turns from Wiz Khalifa and Teyana Taylor) to make the grade into being a whip-approved cut even if it doesn’t necessarily feel like the mega game changer Joe needs to give his forthcoming full-length some true jump-off power.
