History[edit]

On February 26, 2009, Virgin Records announced that this album would be released on April 7.[7] It was later delayed to May 19, late June, and September 22,[9] before Joe announced on his Twitter feed that the album would be released on October 6.[10] Fat Joe explained to XXL on May 22 that he delayed the album due to a lack of promotion.[11] The day of the label's announcement, Fat Joe held a listening party for the album.[12] Prior to the release of the album on October 6, rival 50 Cent, issued a number of viral videos poking fun at the album as it was about to be released. Fat Joe replied with messages via his Twitter page, saying;

"50 is sick that my album is so hot. That real music! Not that wack stuff him and his clowns are making."
