Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Fat Joe f/ OZ, T-Pain
Title: Put You in the Game
Label: Terror Squad/Imperial Records

Jim Jonsin has become recognized for chart-topping hits from T.I. to Mike Jones to Lil Wayne, and he tries to provide that same magic for Fat Joe on "Put You in the Game." He partially succeeds, although if you find yourself humming the chorus to "Whatever You Like" listening to it, I don't blame you one bit. It's not just the beat that's cliche though, it's Fat Joe's baller status rap: "Suicide do's, I'm so Cobain/Louis camou' jacket, the bag is the same/She says Joey Crack you must be sellin cocaine/Cause they don't make no money like that in the rap game/Mr. Mr. Rainman, yeah I can make it rain/Top blown off, and I ain't even aim/Yankee hat back, the seats on lean/And no that's not a car, that's a fuckin' airplane." Really? Why don't you fly away then. OZ's verse is an afterthought, and when the most interesting part of your song is the Auto-Tune hook from T-Pain, you're not impressing me. I don't hate "Put You in the Game" but it's absolutely nothing to write home about.
