Background[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][11] Fat Joe explained to XXL on May 22 that he delayed the album due to a lack of promotion.[12] The day of the label's announcement, Fat Joe held a listening party for the album.[13] 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."[14]

Singles[edit]

The first single was "One" featuring Akon; Fat Joe commented that his marriage inspired this song.[15] "One" peaked at #74 on the Billboard R&B chart. The second single is "Aloha" featuring Pleasure P and Rico Love.[16][17]
