Joey Crack dropped "Da Gangsta" part of his stage name for the sequel to Represent, a record blessed with great D.I.T.C. beats and Joe's signature tough guy raps. This time around, Fat Joe had clearly benefitted from the time spent writing with his new crew, as he demonstrated a tighter flow, better writing, and a top-notch selection of instrumentals.

With cameos from heavyweights like KRS-One and Raekwon and whole lot of Bronx pride, Joe elevated himself from Diggin' In The Crates enforcer to respected artist, introducing the world to the phenomenal talents of his "twin" Big Punisher in the process on "Watch Out."
